4 stars The previous review is a hard act to follow. This really is a superb record. No single Zappa album, as a whole, surpassed this before his passing. If you hated the Reagan years, this will most likely sum up your reasons why. If you're only interested in outstanding arrangements, amazing musicians and a multiple spread of influences, this will leave you satisfied as well. The ebb and flow of this record are remarkable. Each song is spliced directly into the next and carries a continuation of lyrical themes. I would say this makes the CD release a more rewarding listening experience than the vinyl. Personal favorites: "I'm a Beautiful Guy", "Heavenly Bank Account", "Doreen".
