5 stars To me, this brilliant double set represents the finest work of the Mothers of Invention along with the wonderfully satirical 'We're Only In It For the Money' and the bizarre compilation 'Weasels Ripped My Flesh'. Originally composed as a soundtrack to the Zappa produced movie of the same name, but the project was not completed until 1987, the music here is very experimental and mainly chamber rock oriented with some incredible bizarre snippets of offbeat intern humor and tape effects inbetween. The whole thing is brilliantly put together, cleverly edited and features some of Zappa's most unique compositions in this field. Surely a massive influence on the forthcoming RIO-movement in the late 70's, but this should also be viewed as a milestone within experimental rock. While FZ did even better albums than this one later on none of them has the charm that this one have and I recommend it strongly, especially for those who have a knack for woodwinds and vibes (and yes, this is Ruth Underwood's first album collaborating with FZ).
