5 stars As with Hot Rats, Caravanserai, and Blow by Blow, this classic is fitting of the title "best jazz album by a musician not best known for playing Jazz" The pacing is terrific, the instumentation sublime, the overall groovy feel really resonates with the listener. All of the instruments combine to sound like the tightest outfit that ever toured and recorded during the dawn of FM radio. I'd rate each of these songs as highlight, and every person remotely interested in Frank Zappa needs to listen to this one several times. The riff for Eat the Question is probably my favorite riff from what I would call the "riffrock" period

Frank had such a unique ability to spill his thoughts into sounds
