5 stars Everything a ("gurú" )of the experimentation, the sonic vanguard and of acid humor, parodia and the satire, Frank Zappa and his Mothers of Invention presented/displayed this first disc in the heat of efervescencia hippie and psicodélica, a published in their time like Lp double and structured conceptual work in a very distinguible sonorous dualidad. The first disc is made up of songs short, very near the pop one coming from the British Islands, melodic very obtained like "Anyway the wind blows", "Motherly love" (love to the Mothers of Invention, of course), "You didn't try to call me", "Ím not satisfied" (everything a song to the suicide), "How dog I be such to fool" or "Wowie Zowie" (this piece with a keyboard to the one Of the Shannon). Psychedelic shines already in classic subjects as "Who plows the brain police" or "Hungry freaks, daddy" (of stoniana influence). It either does not scorn to pieces doo-wop and jazzísticos effluvia, that would be mark of the house in their eclectic and prolífica artistic trajectory. The second vinyl (much less accessible commercially, something that to Zappa brought to him to the fresh air) present/display ferocious a tríada one of long pieces of social foundation vanguardista and determined diatriba, marked by attractive and a chaotic one to be able sonic which it begins with pride and garajera, with dylanianos echoes, "Trouble every day" and which it is continued by cuts insane and so amazingly audacious as "Help, Ím to rock" (with the participation of Kim Fowley) or "The return of the are of Monster Magnet". Great production of Tom Wilson (collaborating of Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel or Soft Machine) for the phenomenal zappianas compositions, that influenced in Paul McCartney (next to "Pet Sounds") to devise the "Sgt. Peppers ".
