4 stars If anyone still has misgivings about Primus being included on this site, they should pick up a copy of this album. Sure it's loaded with punk sensibilities (hey, do those words belong together?), but it also has Larry LaLonde's wild, disjointed guitar riffs, Les Claypool's even wilder bass hammering, and the pride of every prog fan: exotic time signatures. Yes, on this album, you will hear songs in 5, 7 and even the dreaded 11 (in a song called Eleven).

Highlights on this album include the hilarious Sgt. Baker, about a marine drill sergeant, and the hits, Jerry Was A Race Car Driver and Tommy The Cat, the latter is not as good as the original live version on "Suck On This", but it does have the benefit of a guest appearance by Tom Waits.

Evolver | 4/5 |
