3 stars 3.4/5.0 Another mixbag of great stuff and... let's say less great stuff. Beside " Little House I Used to Live In" which is a great - and long - prog song, the two best songs are the first and the last one, yet do-wop songs again from Frank Zappa! So, I think it says a lot when the do-wop songs are some of the highlights of the album.

On the plus side, however, there are a lot of great instruments used on the album, particularly Underwood piano on Aybe sea, which is gorgeous (but still, the song is short ). Another great song: "Theme from Burnt Weenie Sandwich", which creates an interesting prog atmosphere which is pretty different to the usual Zappa chaos...

It is a good album to listen to, but not an essential one. 3.4/5.0
