5 stars Uncle Meat is the soundtrack to an unreleased (at the time) film by Frank Zappa. You can tell this is a soundtrack with the conceptual dialogue. However, Zappa's amazing production techniques in the vein of We're Only in it for the Money are present, but this time you get the amazing compositional and jazz-rock complexity jams in the vein of Absolutely Free. You get a ton of material with this album, it's surprisingly fluid in it's seemingly thrown together nature. I'd have to say that nearly all the stylings of the early Mothers' are thrown together here. Amazingly memorable moments and compositions are all throughout this album, and incredibly fre pieces like King Kong. Some surprisingly beautiful acoustic passages are scattered throughout the album, but msot importantly is the studio-tweaked extremely dexterous compositions by the Mothers. An extremely solid album, Uncle Meat encompasses what the early Mothers were, and why they were so legendary. 9.6
