4 stars In 1977 I watched a TV programme at 6pm on one sorry evening. That night decent Rock music was abandoned forever more. Only one man stood in the way of Idiots taking over completely. His name Frank Zappa, & the title track of this album is just what he thought of the Idiots.

1977 programme featured the Sex Pistols - amongst their childish language they even had a go at Beethoven. If you're wondering why music is so rubbish now here's your answer. Music cannot progress if it's been flawed (floored) by people who believe low standards achieve success.

Zappa started music that is adventurous. It's ironic that he was the only one left standing when everyone else, cowardly, abandoned ship.

This album is by far one of his more disappointing albums. However, 'to get a record dea you should NOT have to be more Punk'. Buy this album as a tribute to a true hero in the history of real musicians throughout the world.
