The Residents

From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Prog Reviewer
4 stars With compositions like the riotous Infant Tango (which combines Beefheartian vocals, surf rock guitar, and pulsating, Mothers of Invention-ish percussion bubbling underneath the surface) and cover art directly blaspheming against the Beatles, few avant-garde experimental rock groups can claim to have made a debut more provocative than Meet the Residents. Nobody in 1974 could have expected a band informed by the strangest moments of Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band (perhaps one of the few acts the album is comparable to) would sound anywhere near this good, but good it is, an able demonstration that you can strike a balance between weird and accessible without compromising either.
Warthur | 4/5 |
