3 stars This album (together with The Grand Wazoo actually) sealed my faith as a Zappa fan, I really enjoy the snippet formula, where elements and bits of clasical and pop music are seamingly randomly glued together with bits of spoken text, random discussion and verses, really fascinating to listen to. The first half of the album is for me the most rewarding side of the album as it has more melody (certainly the intro is great, and reminds me of a Ennio Moricone moviescore, just a little more franatic). As mentioned in other reviews, later Zappa songs are introduced as segments of the whole experience (King Kong, Take Your Clothes Off, Oh No). As a whole it's an intriging experience which displays what Zappa tried to achieve as a musician, combining whatever he got in his mind and serving it as a collage for the listener to apreciate (or not) I apreciate this.
