Captain Beefheart

5 stars What an astonishing, powerful, vital comeback! After straying in the wilderness for the majority of the 70s, and following an intense legal battle over some of the music re-recorded for this record, dear Captain Beefheart returns with what may be his most simultaneously commercial/odd/bold recording. Numerous musical styles are courted and conquered, each instilled with flavorful classic Vliet weirdness. The new Magic Band purrs along like the most elegant and well-tuned of machines, less accompaniment and more extension of Beefheart's rambling, growling, gorgeous escapade. Five stars easily: this is a masterpiece that I've rarely heard rivaled, and potentially my favorite Beefheart release alongside Safe as Milk and Lick My Decals Off, Baby.
