4 stars A after the release of Eskimo, the Residents decided to go try something a little bit different, somthing a little bit more, commercial. They made all the songs one the album one minute long as they figured that was the length of the average television commercial. Of course, it's nearly impossible to explain what the Residents sound like on any of their albums. There are cases were the Residents don't even sound like the Residents. So I will not waste my time doing something as futile as that. This is probably the easiest album to find by the Residents these days. Almost everything of theirs is out of print and impossible to find. This is a good place to start with the Residents however, but it's not like there's any other place to really start either. It can be hard at first if you aren't a fan of short songs, but it will grow on you. (it took my 9 months to get into this album) This isn't a bad thing though, because once you're into the Residents, you will find that doors will start opening that you never knew existed and you will also have reached true happiness in your life. Well, whatever the case, you'll be glad to have gotten into the group.
