Frank Zappa's musical genius will take a long time to unravel. With 57 albums to his credit, ultilizing techniques of heavy rock, avant-garde classical music, jazz, and ethnic music, his body of work has defied both description and criticism. In this brilliant treatise, Watson explains, expounds, dissects, analyzes, experiences, and, in the end, ensures that Zappa's works, thoughts, actions, and deeds will live on forever.

Mr Out To Lunch has written a very learned, very eccentric and very personal response to the works of Mr Zappa. He lost me, (and Frank!) when making references to Theodor Adorno, whose work I am unfamiliar with, but his comments on why Frank's music is great even when the lyrics are rude or silly are right on the button. Anyone who has spent time writing seriously about Shakespeare or Chaucer will appreciate the comparison between Stinkfoot and King Lear. Everyone else will appreciate the fact that Frank Zappa is at last being taken very, very seriously.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
