I feel the above review is very poor and scant so I feel I have to really comment on this magic album. This album should interest all Zappa fans. While purely instrumental, no one can deny his immense talent and proficiency in the field of boundary breaking for "rock artists". With this and other albums, he shed this tag with aplomb with compostions entirely unrelated to rock. The album sways from stately, grand backdrops to zany lines whose instrument changes from note to note, hooking your interest from curiousity at first and then reverence. "Night school" , "Jazz from Hell" and of course, the wonderful "G-spot tornado" are all brilliant. I'm only giving 4 stars though. For one, though its (in my opinion) easy to listen to, it isin't the most enjoyable Zappa album. For example, I find "Beltway bandits" the low point of the album-a little aimless and uninteresting- and "St Etienne" really dosen't let the band shine the way we know they can. Otherwise though, I adore this album for its originality, its scope and for the sound that only Zappa could have made. I mean, can anyone even name another album like it?Was this review helpful?
