2 stars The shortest album by Mothers of invention, with most tracks beeing miniatures. The irony, mocking and critism is still there, of course.

Are you hung up Weird and silly vocals with a bit of guitar in the outro. 0 stars

Who needs the peace corps A melodic numberdominated by hypnotical drumming and good vocaals by Zappa. Good saxophone playing as well. 5 stars

Concentration moon Agaun a mock pop track . There is a nice melodic change near the middle however. 3 stars

Mom and dad A nce melody with funny lyrics, Zappaesque as usual. In the better way . 5 stars

Telephone conversation Well, a telephone conversation. No more, no less, no melody. 0 points

Bow tie daddy A mock pop song with melody a la thirties. 0.5 stars

Harry, youīre a beast Harmless filler. 0 stars

Whatīs the ugliest part of your baddy Another mock of a pop song. The melodies are catch&y, however and it sounds almost like a micro opera. 5 stars

Absolutelly free After a dramatic intro with piano the track gets into the mock pop style again. Nothing to rave about. The previous one was better. Still, the melody is nice. 3.5 star

Flower punk A mock of the hippies and psychedelias. (not the first one on the record, obviously). The melody is repetitive and clumsy and then itīs just weird talking and yelling. 0 stars

Hot poop Just a spoken filler not even a minute long. 0 stars

Nasal retentive caliope music Just some weird noises. No melody, no mood. 0 stars

Letīs make the water turn black A mock pop track Melodic, but not necessarily breahtaking. 3 stars

The idiot bastard A catchy trak with good vocals from Frank. 5 stars

Lonely litle girl Mocking again. The melody is sub par again. At least there is some nice guitar playing in the fast intro. 1 star

Take your clothes off when you dance A bit better melody, than on the previous track, but thatīs all. 1.5 stars

Whatīs the ugliest part of your body (reprise) A reprise, but more weird and less melody. 0 stars

Mother people A mini epic with catchy melody, and good vocals, which dominate the number. 5 stars

The chrome plated megaphone of destiny Just a weird collage of sound, which is missing atmosphere. 0 stars

Overall rating: 2 STARS

It may be the greatest mock album ever released, but not musically).
