5 stars This is another record that changed the face of rock, we like it or not. When "MY NAME IS MUD" hit the radio no one could believe what the hell they were hearing!!! is that noise?, is that music? is tha a pork? is that common?... So, the record start with a marvellous piece of "old fashioned" banjo work, reminding sweet south-state feeling, going directlly to the super-deep bass of "my name is mud", but if that is not enough, they led you to a crazy bass and vocal work with "welcome to this world", leaving you at shock for the rest of the record, trying to find out what has happened!. Jewels like "mr. krinkle", and "hamburger train" remind you the greatness of a very naive and crazy band trying to make a name in this industry. Try to hear the album in its enteriety at first glance to achieve the real context and complexity of each song without losing a note, and then you might get as disturbed as them. The closing song "hail santa" is for the christmas-bored man, speechless, a masterpiece in its own realm.
