4 stars This would be the album I'd recommend to anyone who isn't yet familiar with the music of Frank Zappa because it captures perfectly his skill as a musician and his pension for the absurd. The songs on this album will drill itself into your brain and if your lucky people won't thing you too odd when you start using the term crux of the biscuit (maybe even in college research papers) or advising friends and loved ones in the middle of winter to watch out for that yellow snow. So strong are the songs that surround it on this album I almost overlooked Cosmik Debris which, along with Montana off of Over-Nite Sensation, began my love affair with the music of Frank Zappa, as it was my father's favorite FZ song off of this his favorite FZ album. While this whole album will stick with you after a listen the songs that are absolutely seared into my permanent memory would be St. Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast, Excentrifugal Forz, and Uncle Remus. Truely, every song demands to be listened to till this album replaces all your other time honored memories becoming the only thing occupying your mind and you have to be re-taught proper table manners and how to tie your shoes by a kindly stranger or nursing home attendi. 4.5 toppled lawn jockeys out of 5!
