5 stars This is a fantastic two epic album!

This album takes pop songs from the decade previous and turns them into a progressive rock nightmare of World War II via dissonant keyboards, bizarre transitions, neolithic and childish vocals, and the guitar genius of Snakefinger. The concept and its surrounding controversy are hillarious if strange (notice Dick Clarke on the front cover).

The repackaging of this album for the cd release is a beautiful small hardcover booklet, with the cd in the back, explaining the album and the reasons and conditions for its genesis.

The beauty in this album is the great, beautiful, and hillarious manner in which The Residents pulled this off.

Fans of Zappa's first few albums with The Mothers may be among those who will appreciate this the most, but it is recommended to all prog and music fans in general.
