SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team
4 stars There's only one Frank Zappa and only one that can do this kind of music! This concert made in Halloween presents the late 70's and early 80's music of Frank with many songs that could have been even shorter if they did not include the usual Frank guitar solo. My mind is drifting away when I hear his guitar solo. I prefer to see him conduct his musicians and hear the funny lyrics and music when it's going in his unpredictable direction. The songs are flowing smoothly into each other so that you can see the show as one long song. It is impossible to enjoy everything the man has done in his career because he has played too many styles with the Mothers of Invention or with his synclavier albums, but everyone can see how original was his music and the man who have always stick with his views on many subjects with satire and cynism. This DVD is a great place to start for someone who can be disturbed by the experimental nature of some others videos he has done. This one shows you how the musicians are perfectly synchronized to play this complex music the Zappa way. I just imagine how much more albums he would have done if he was still alive...
