3 stars Why bother buying the other two separately? Recorded and written in the same year, all three acts belong together - it's clear from the first moment you hear them one after the other. Though I'm fonder of the first act by far, the second and third are not by any means bad. Some of Zappa's more accessible and memorable moments can be found here, and having it all in one package is a lot more convenient. Again, this is the poppier side of prog, but this is excellent prog pop, mind you. Unfortunately, because there's less complex writing and insane playing, there are many other, many greater, jazzier, more coherent releases by Zappa to buy, and this is certainly no priority for a Zappa newbie.
