4 stars Frank Zappa once again displays himself as a satiricus, making fun of the Flower Power and hippy movement in this wonderfull album. Psychedelic songs, with a typical hippy flavour. The lyrics often times are hilarious, the conceptual theme reminds me of albums like Sergeant Pepper (Beatles) Sell Out (The Who) and that Beach Boys album (Pet Sounds), but musically it's distinctively Zappa style, short fragmented melody's glued perfectly together, with short spoken intermezzo's.

Highlights on this amazing album include Who Needs The Peace Corps, Flower Punk, Let's Make The Water Turn Black and Take Your Clothes Off but really all songs have some quality that makes them fitting for this album. Earlier Zappa albums are a bit more out-there musically, but in a way this is the best he did so far, and that's saying something.

Highly recommended.
