4 stars This album has some great tracks, but overall it's not anywhere close to Zappa's best, or an essential album.

No Not Now: Catchy little tune, but I dont think this would please many progfans.

Valley girl: This song was Zappa's ''hit'', just like the first song its catchy, but i dont think it would please many progfans.

I Come From Nowhere: Ok, this is a little better. It has some awesome guitar parts especially, and singing which may at first catch you offguard, but I found myself liking it.

Drowning Witch: This song is great, hillarious and has alot of guitar solo's which aim to please. My fave song on this album along with.......

Envelopes: This instrumental just kicks ass, it's short, but it does rule.

Teenage Prostitute: The opera esque singing annoyed me whenever I heard this song, but I eventually caught on. It's ok though, not essential Zappa.

This album is great, but it is far from being essential Zappa.

Overall Rating: 3.7/5
