3 stars What Primus is doing on the ProgArchives is a bit of a wonder, because however talented was Primus during their first few albums, they had nothing to do with prog. Don't get me wrong here Primus's members are all excellent musicians and the music is certainly not an easy one to play. I believe they rival in virtuosity/dexterity with their obvious mentors The Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They develop a funky hard rock (I would almost say metallic on the energy front) with the same punkish revolt the RHCP did, but also Faith No More and many more Grunge groups that the era provided. The late 80's/early 90's were fertile ground for such talented groups, and personally I like better Primus or RHCP much more than I do the "progressive" groups still active at the time. I mean the era was so poor for progressive music, that I had totally given up and I was exploring 60's jazz and 70's jazz-rock at the time, and when I paid attention to the radio, I was actually quite interested in such group that had the RnR spirit, but with the dexterity to go along with it. Although this album is not quite up to the level of RHCP's Sex Blood Sugar Magick, it is a gem is its type of records, but hardly any progressive. In another site, I probably would have given this album a fourth star, but on the Archives, I can only give it three and that in all honesty, is quite a complement. The next album with its atrocious cover, Pork Soda is of the same vein but not quite as brilliant.
