4 stars I yust got this album and i love it right away what an amazing debut album for the Captain, he probobly tryed to make a simple blues album but being the eccentric arch freak that he was simply culdent its not as wierd as the toxic polution dump of a masterfull cake that is Trout Mask Replica but you can allready hear where things are going from the start. Some of the songs are straight blues rockers but still with Beefhearts Howlin wolf sounding voice prevent it from ever geting straight in anyway. "Im glad" is a very nice soulfull ballad with some very sweet vocals and good melody, the other songs are psychedelic qircky blues numbers. The opener "Sure 'Nuff 'N Yes I Do" starts the album with a bang and from start to finish every song is a winner. Aperently this was very ground breaking back in the day it was reales very shortly after Sgt pepper and compering the 2 pepper sounds pretty lame. The new remeastered editon have superior sound, actualy coming from 1967 one have to say its realy incredibly good, sounding almost like it was made yesterday. This is a Amercian classic RIO/avantgarde rock album that toghter with Trout mask replica shuld be in every collection even if you not one of the Captians biggest fans. I give it 4 stars since its not on the same level as trout but an amazing debute album and a good starting album for beefheart newbies.
Zargus | 4/5 |
