2 stars Zappa goes accessible again

Don´t eat the yelow snow Made upon a repetitive instrumental groove (the melody is quite nice, though), but it still sounds rather seneseless. 2.5 stars

Nanook rubs it A number with repetitve bluesy grrove and average melody, Frank moves between speaking and singing, the band plays fine, but there are no instrumental parts, except for a few guitar outsbursts by Frank. 1 stars

St, Alphonzo´s pancake breakfast A faster number. a good instrumental passsage featuring xylophone and a moog, but melodywise this is really sub par, plus it sounds like an underdeveloped snippet or excerpt.0.5 star

Father O´blivion A speed rock track with some nice vocals from Zappa, but the melody is nothing extra and forgetttable. 2.5 stars

Cosmic debris Another spoken blues rocker. Some nice understated keyboard playing here, but the female vocals sound hilarious and the eerie whispering can get on one´s nerves after a while. At least it has an ok enough melody and a fine solo by Zappa. 3.5 stars

Excentrifugal forz Sort of a twin to the previous track in style, but the melody is worse. Great rhytm section (as on the whole album, though). 0 stars

Apostrophe A very fine instrumental with heavy distorted guitar from Zappa. A very good guitar solo from Zappa and some excellent bassplaing on this one as well. Pretty rocking. 5 stars

Uncle Remus Dominated by piano and vocals, this is mostly a comedial track with a good ndd accessible melody and a fine short guitar solo from Zappa. 4 stars

Stink foot An ok blues based track with some nice guitarplaying, even if the melody is nothing special. The atmosphere of this one is fine, though. 4 stars

Overall rating: 2 STARS
