3 stars Top notch soundtrack from Zappa and the Mothers. This time, he got an orchestra to help him out with the compositions. This double CD set features a lot of songs (most don't even reach the 2 minute mark), and it features the masterpiece Strictly Genteel. Many of the compositions feature recurring themes that are performed differently each time, such as This Town is a Sealed Tuna Sandwich (which then gets 3 more songs in the Tuna vein). The musicianship is spectacular and it molds perfectly with the orchestra. Flo and Eddie are delightful and offer a lot of comedy to this nonsensical soundtrack to a movie about life on the road. Overall, fans of Zappa should definitely check this out, but if you are just getting into Zappa, I'd try something else. However, if you can actually find this album in a store or on the internet for a reasonable price (I've seen it for as much as $50), you should definitely pick up this spectacle of sound. 3.5/5.
