The Truth
4 stars If you are willing to drive yourself insane only to find you're not insane but rather in a heightened state of mind that everyone you love and hate will find insane, this album is for you.

That intro was about as complex as this album which at first seems completely insane but as you delve deeper you find that there is more going on then what first meets the ear. Captain Beefheart is somewhat of an odd type of genius that only few can admire. This album is a dive into sounds that had never been made before and words that had never been spoken. There are times when it makes you want to shoot yourself and others when you admire how thoughtful Don really was.

It is ultimately pointless to describe this album to someone who hasn't heard it because it is pretty much hypocritical of itself. When it tries to be comedic it tends to be much more serious and vice-versa. That is what makes this a gem. Music being pushed to it's limits.

Isn't that why we love it?

4.2 stars.
