4 stars Although I never really considered THE RESIDENTS to be a prog rock band this is one great album never the less! It's The Residents send up (take off?) on all of those great golden oldies from the 1960's ( and some 1950's ). You know,all of the AM radio stuff. Anything from the heavies to the bubblegum music is covered here and with much love and humor. If you have never heard anything by this group,this may be a good one to start with. The music is hard to describe. Much of it is produced using toy instruments as well as standard guitars and synths and drum machines! The vocals can be childlike whimperings or pyscho screeches. Not everyone will like this,but for those of you who do, this lp is a treat! This is my personal favorite of all of THE RESIDENTS numerous releases. Features the late great SNAKEFINGER on guitar. The cd release of this one has some bonus material included which were all released as singles at some point. Be brave and listen up!
