4 stars Occam's Razor is a guitar solo from Inca Roads, this one appears to be the one Frank used to construct Toad O Line, a guitar instrumental fron Joe's Garage Act I. It's a piece constructed using XENOCRONY, a method that Frank develloped, wich consists in put toghether different tracks from different ocations (thus, the interactions between different instruments have been never occured). Those tracks are not at the same tempo, so the whole thing sounds in a way that can't be reached by playing or recording in another of the common ways.

Zappa explains all this in the booklets of Sheik Yerbouty and The Guitar World According to Frank ZAppa.

I recomend this album to all those who are looking to learn what Zappa did and how he did it. For me, it's a two stars, but it still blows away a lot of four star albums. It's anthropological.

I have to apologize for mi very poor English. Greetings from Argentina. SIETE
