4 stars A hugely jazzy, funky, and really captivating experimental prog journey awaits you! Filled entirely with a massive selection of various instruments, as all RIO, and really outstanding musicianship, this album may be Zappa's magnum opus. All songs are very instrumentally chalenging and always musically interesting. Some solos here are really blazing, and never have I heard such a sax solo as that on the bass-heavy, extremely funky jam of the Gumbo Variations. Zappa, as always, overdoses on both excellent songwriting and incredible talent from his hand-picked line of jaw-dropping musicians. Don't think of Zappa as my mother does: a sick, shaggy, gross pig who only has a mind for titties and bear, and only has the creative capacity for the likes of Dynamo Hum. Though this album's greatest fault is its lack of sensitivity and the emotional touch of any true masterpiece is devoit, the album is still a fresh and genuine instrumental (except for the sub-par Willie the Pimp) album.
Shakespeare | 4/5 |
