4 stars This is one of the most definitive Frank Zappa albums. It's got it all: weird uses of instruments, bizarre solos, strange vocals on Willie the Pimp, you name it. I think the reason it's so highly acclaimed here is because it's everything Frank Zappa is about.

At it's best, it's engaging, funny, and enjoyable. And, it usually hangs around in this area. But at times, particularly on The Gumbo Variations, it felt a little tedious and pretentiousness. Still, if you want a weird but enjoyable album with catchy riffs and great percussion beats, or if you just want (probably) the best gateway drug into the world of Frank Zappa, check this one out.
