5 stars Maybe this is the most famous Frank Zappa album. Is this the his best? Maybe, certainly one of the best album that he has composed. Many prog-fan have written a lot of reviews so, what can i say again? This is a very excellent album, excellent music and well played. The band isn't a typical "Frank Zappa band", we can find only Ian Underwood as "old" Zappa musician. The rest of the group is composed by people who never played with Frank before (Beefheart except) or late. This peculiar feature is not easy to find in a Zappa's album. I recommend this work for everybody who like Zappa and jazz-rock music. My favorite song is "Willie the pimp", absolutely crazy but all the rest of the album contain other music gems. Absolutely a masterpiece.
