5 stars Yes this album is a masterpiece, though a sadly neglected one at that.... completeley unlike anything before or after this is Zappa writing the music he wants without the constraints of human performers. That said, it takes a few listens - but most works of real genius do. From the wacky optimism of the opening track 'Night School', to the aggressive and dark title track, Zappa pushes the envelope in every direction - remember this was '86. 'G-Spot Tornado' was the commercial track and the one that everyone latches onto but is surpassed by everything else on the album. The one live track is brilliant - St. Etienne - featuring what is basically a duet between Wackerman and Zappa (both in top form) with Steve Vai painting a sparkling background of stunt guitar. If you love Zappa's instrumental and serious side then you need to have this album - it is a hearty meal and will last you for months.
