4 stars It was this album that really introduced me to the legend that is Frank Zappa, and i really enjoyed it. This being the third album with The Mothers of Invention and is no doubt his most famous of this period, its just wierd that it so happens to be more of a parody of the more famous bands and albums out at the time (mostly the Sgt Peppers album) but with songs like WHO NEEDS THE PEACE CORPS? do you really care if its that goofy? of course not, the music is some of Zappas best in my honest opinion standout tracks include WHATS THE UGLIEST PART OF YOUR BODY?, HOT POOP, LETS MAKE THE WATER TURN BLACK and TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES WHEN YOU DANCE. The production as youd expect from Zappa of course is brilliant and most of the melodies are first class with some songs being very funny;

Are You Hung Up? - 8/10 Who Needs The Peace Corps? - 10/10 Concentration Moon - 8/10 Mom & Dad - 8/10 Telephone Conversation - 8/10 Bow Tie Daddy - 9/10 Harry, You're A Beast - 9/10 What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body? - 10/10 Absolutley Free- 9/10 Flower Punk - 8/10 Hot Poop - 9/10 Nasal Retentive Calliope Music - 7/10 Let's Make The Water Turn Black - 10/10 The Idiot Bastard Son - 8/10 Lonely Little Girl - 8/10 Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance - 9/10 What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body? (Reprise) - 8/10 Mother People - 9/10 The Chrome Plated Megaphone Of Destiny - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? If your after a great prog rock album with a good sence of humour, id buy this album, or if your just after a great album, this is the one to go to
