2 stars This should be one of the last Beefheart albums you purchase. There are a couple decent tunes, but the Cap'n just sounds uninspired here. I guess the music biz was just getting him down by this point -- he compromised and made a couple MOR-ish records of unchallenging music. "Unconditionaly Guaranteed" is far worse than this one, but pushes the sell-out angle so hard in some ways it's almost more interesting than this one (no, not really.) Just why the record companies though a mellower, watered-down Beefheart would sell when his full-on works didn't is a mystery to me.

"Observatory Crest" is actually one of CB's better "mainstream" numbers -- a nostalgic song about making out! But that's not why one generally listens to CB& his MB is it???

Mainly for Beefheart completists.
