3 stars There are about six THE RESIDENTS recordings that I would highly recommend, this is not one of them. There was a compilation album they released back in 1983 called "Residue", well this contains those twelve tracks plus another ten and they called this "Residue Deux". This was released in 1998 and these compilation albums contain outtakes of songs mostly from the early seventies to the early eighties. This is actually much better than you would think but I'd still suggest this one to hard core fans only. The first track that I really took to was "Diskomo" with those light vocals that come and go while beats and experimental sounds support. So catchy. "From The Plains Of Mexico" has these folky almost spoken words with an intense backdrop of sounds. The lyrics are dramatic. "Safety Is A Cootie Wootie" rounds out my top three and this one is also pretty intense sounding with vocals over top. So with 22 songs and all being outtakes you know we're going to get some duds but I'm actually surprised at how consistently good this is. I take back what I said earlier, if you're a fan of this band it's well worth checking this recording out, you might be surprised.
