5 stars This is one of the weirdest and most influential albums I own. On top of that, it is also one of the most hilarious. The instruments are played with high proficiency, though there are no keyboards and there is tons of dissonance, which may prove to be impenetrable for a substantial amount of proggers. Beefheart's poetic lyrics are cryptic and insane, which complements the music perfectly. I love the tracks where Beefheart plays the saxophone especially; all the compositions are crafted extremely well.

This album has a very unique feel to it and may take several listens to fully enjoy, particularly with its length. The music is almost indescribable. very jagged, dissonant, yet beautiful in a twisted way. You can feel the creativity of Van Vliet and the Magic Band pouring through each song; it's wonderful.

A masterpiece. This is not for everyone though.
