5 stars Hot Rats by Frank Zappa is Zappa's second solo album, the album released in October of 1969. Hot Rats is a mostly instrumental album, The only song with lyrics on it is Willie the Pimp which features Captain Beefheart on vocals, and he delivers a fun and comedic performance that I can appreciate. The rest of the album shows great instrumentation from everyone else involved. The music has a lot of jazzy sections and it works really well with the rocky foundation. I will give this a 5/5 because its great throughout, but whether or not its essential is debatable because I am sure a lot of people who would prefer there be lyrics, but for me, its not essential.
