4 stars Some of the best bass guitar playing ever recorded is contained on this album. Overall, this album is probably "more progressive" than the previous effort Frizzle Fry. Once again, the musicianship of each member is featured prominently, from Alexander's punchy drums, LaLonde's aharmonic guitar, and of course Les Claypool's simply amazing bass riffing. Heavy bass-and-drums in the vein of RUSH, experimental melodies and harmonies in the vein of KING CRIMSON, and every bit as absurd as the RESIDENTS, and ZAPPA. "Jerry Was A Race Car Driver" and "Tommy the Cat" are based on some of the most intense bass work ever conceived. Les uses all 6 strings of his bass to make some pretty wild sounds in a completely original way. These experimental rants are complemented by a few more straightforward driving songs like "Sgt Baker" and "Those Damned Blue Collar Tweekers". Each song on the record is a gem in its own way. Approach with a cautious ear, and leave some time for it to sink in. It is to be appreciated for originality, musicianship, and for the cartoonish persona that is Les Claypool. But, hey, if you decide its not for you, it's not for you.

If you own just one Primus album, make it this one.
