4 stars There isn't much for me to say here. I love the Captain and his Magic Band because the music they make couldn't be anymore daring and original. It is completely weird stuff lyrically and musically but uses excellent production, prog arrangements and delivers not only great music but laughter and excitement. This album is very out there, it is definetly not over the top in any way really, it is very subtle musical genius disguised as a noisy free for all in your face style of music. Captain Beefheart pretty much ignores any kind of musical structures. Him and his band just go their own way and most of the time they make it work really well.

For me this album was instantly accesible, a lot more so than "Trout Make Replica". I am quite used to his music but i know it is not for everyone and it is definetly an acquired taste. I think this album will fit in well with fans of psychadelia, drug orientated music and fans of general weirdness. There really isn't a bad moment on this album.

The standout tracks are "Harry Irene", "Bat Chain Puller", "When I See Mommy I Feel Like a Mummy", "Tropical Hot Dog Night" and "You Know You're a Man" though every track is amazing really. I highly recommend this to fans of Beefheart or anyone looking for something different.
