3 stars I've listened to this many times now, and I have to say that Peaches En Regalia is one of my faovurite songs of all time. It really is a masterpiece. All the other songs have great themes, but one of their major downfalls is that they don't seem to know when to stop. Unlike Zappa's later works, which were more progressive and had different movements and parts, these songs seem to go nowhere. For example, Willy The Pimp sounds superb at first, and goes into a violin/guitar solo after the lyrics, which is great at first, but quickly gets extremely repetitive and/or boring unless you're stoned. That said, each song has it's great parts and high points, but it just goes on forever. Zappa and his band would improve very much in this fashion over the next few years.
