This is sheer brilliance. If you love Bungle's "Desert Search for Techno Allah," then you'll blag your pants over this! It's far more compressed and tight than other Secret Chiefs releases. Thematically, each track builds and refines and improvises upon each other, reinforcing the intensity.

Tr 1 is a straightforward, Middle eastern/Spanish sounding melody of lament. So Morricone that it hurts. Also calls to mind (the horn and cello?) the melody line from the 2nd move of the concierto de aranjuez- at least to these ears. lasts about 2.5 minutes. Great intro to what folllows!

Tr 2 is a thrashed out charging attack on the same melodic idea, with a throbbing surf-backbeat. Nuts!!!!

Tr 3 twitters and squeaks and then a twangy reverbed surf guitar and drum beat pick up where 2 left off. MORE NUTS!!!!

Tr 4 begins with more twang and also soft middle eastern type instrumentation in some kind of odd (harmonic minor???) key, then slips into a rather poppy rock beat with a skankin rhythm. neato! It scrambles about for awhile before the distortion and thrash comes back in towards the end. The longest track thus far...

Tr 5 is where things get kinda weird, sounds like a video game at first, or an arabian version of the william tell overture. dense electronica with more mid-east instruments and thick breakbeats colliding! Crunch bang boom! This one also lasts awhile building up to a frenetic propulsive conclusion!

Tr 6 starts out, again, ominously surfy- creepy Bungle-esque organs come in and out. This could have easily been on Disco Volante. hell's yes.

Tr 7: begins with (harpsichord?

Every song! EVERY SONG! Every song is my favorite song! This cd is tighter than "chilled monkey brains"! More twists and turns than the Autobahn! Goes best with a bed of rice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second gets better December 13, 2000
By Ramiro
Format:Audio CD
As I said for the First Grand Constitution, this album is simply great, all of the songs are well constructed. If you like SC3 this one will make you love them to death, this is a fantastic album that has it all without losing the essence of the Secret Chiefs: Waves of Blood, this one is a killer; Rose Garden, a very beautiful song; Jabalqa/Jabarsa, you'll be amazed by the percussion work; Mera Pyar Shalimar, simply great; Beyond the Mountain Qaf, gotta have patience with this one;
Hurqalya, it takes you to higher states of mind; Zulfikar II, maybe the best one, Excellent.
Don't doubt about getting this one, it is the best. (Until the Third Constitution). Also check them live.

It is maddeningly difficult to pidgeonhole or lump the Secret Chiefs 3 into any kind of musical genre or mere human description. 'Second Grand Constitution and Bylaws' is just as wild, unpredictable, challenging, and utterly satisfying as the first SC3 album. SC3's unique blend of Arabian folk, 60's surf, techno and death metal is in full effect on the record as well as a heavier dose of songwriting, with most of the songs lasting over three or four minutes, as opposed to the short, mystifying bursts of insanity found on the first record. Every song on this album must be heard to be believed. This record holds its own right next to the Beatle's White Album, Radiohead's OK Computer, Slayer's Reign In Blood, (insert favorite landmark album here).

Don't expect to hear bungle influenced music on this album; this is a whole new thing. These guys have many ideas of their own. There may be no vocals on this (except for #8), but that makes it somehow more atmospheric. Think Middle eastern music plus a little bit of trance and surf; that is what mostly makes up this album, and it's awesome. Any fan of Mr. Bungle should get this checked out (along with First Grand as well).

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Bungle Fans Beware April 9, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Any Mr Bungle fans looking to explore more into the world of bungle I must warn you this album may not be exactly what you are looking for. With that said and done it is an absolutely incredible musical experiance. At first its extreemly heavy middle eastern influence through me off but after several listenings a definate good addition to a music fans cd collection. The reason for only 4 stars is do to the lack luster final two tracks of this disc that left me with a very bad taste in my mouth
