3 stars Overall qouite similar to Hot rats, but weaker.

Big swifty An imrovisation piecew, very jazzy. The trombone parts are horrible, and overall the track doesn´t sound as inspired as anything on Hot rats. Frank´s guitar solo is not one of his best, either. 2.5 stars

My mouth A boring track with uninspired female vocals. No great instrumental parts (just a few wah wahed guitar lines by Frank) and the melody is sub par. 1 star

It might just be a one- shot deal A boring, hilarious avantgarde track. If I want prime avantgarde stuff by Zappa, I listen to Absolutely free. Thankfully, the instrumental part is great , very melodic with some fabulous slide guitar work from Tony Duran. The blues rock outro is neat as well. 3.5 stars

Waka Jawaka A well played instrumental, but the long keyboard part is boring. Thankfully things get better with a moody and inspired guitar solo from Frank. The horn section sounds also fine and in place on this one. 4

Overall rating: 3 stars
