4 stars 4.0/5.0 What a great album! Zappa finally avoids some of his nonsense satire/ parody or meaningless blah-blah and he delivers what I want him to deliver: music! And what a show it is! Ok, to be honest there is still some blah-blah, but it is more discrete and it is more part of an overall MUSIC album and not the center of it. I particularly like "The Dog" and songs like this and the "King Kong" suite is absolutely awesome, particularly King Kong IV. I just can't get enough of this distorted keyboard.

Listening to this album, it seems Zappa finally was able to express his jazz feelings and as weird as this album is (but still less than the previous ones) it is coherent and enjoyable from a prog point of view!

With less blah-blah, I would have given a higher rating. But still, an excellent addition to your prog collection!4.0/5.0
