Prog Reviewer
4 stars This sure ain't symphonic prog, and I'm convinced that it will not much appeal to those who are convinced Greg Lake is the greatest singer (and lyricist!) in the universe, or Steve Hackett the greatest guitarist... On the other hand, those who enjoy Pere Ubu, post-1980 Tom Waits or even Dr John's wilder moments, may lap this up.

Captain Beefheart in his heyday was as avant-garde as they get, and this compilation makes for an excellent introduction to his oeuvre. If these tunes do not confuse you, cheer you up and whet your appetite for more, nothing ever will.

N.B. THE DUST... contains several moments that will be of special interest to mellotron lovers.
