4 stars This is certainly a strange one, but if you have any appreciation of what Zappa was about, and want to be challenged, rather than pandered to or placated, then you will not regret purchasing this. The production is very clean and electronic sounding (all but one track are the products of FZ's notorious Synclavier), and the music comes across as a kind of electronic fireworks show, with plenty going on in the background. This is serious, challenging stuff for those with an interest in cutting edge, experimental electronic music, and in my opinion would rate in FZ's top 5 recordings made in the eighties, after Best Band You Never Heard, Them & Us, and a few others...
