3 stars "Put this disc in your player and prepare for your own private hell. Have A Bad Day." CD Booklet.

There's supposed to be a CD-ROM that was available about the time I got the CD. That's a shame, I suspect it would still be interesting if you could get it to run. I was just scratching the surface of the Residents when I picked this one up. It's a concept album about a really freaky carnival that is based on the CD-ROM game. See their web site for more details on the game.

The music is still your typical Resident's weirdness. I think this was one the first with Molly Harvey on vocals. Really helped give the guys a little more depth.

Anyway, I have to say, put this one on if you're having just too darn much of a good day and really need something to bring you down.

PROG REVIEWER
2 stars Those loveable, anonymous nut-jobs behind the giant eyeballs released this 1996 album as the soundtrack to their innovative CD-Rom game "Bad Day at the Midway" (unseen by this reviewer, but highly regarded by cybernerds and outsider music junkies). It's actually more of a loosely-related supplement, sadly unable to stand on its own two feet without the crutch provided by the earlier work.

The album concept, presenting a musical tour of a malevolent back-roads carnival (the setting recalls some of the nightmare imagery of a Tod Browning or David Lynch movie) should have been well within the typically twisted Residential (dis)comfort zone. But lacking the visual element of the CD-Rom itself leaves the album, like some of its freak show subjects, a stunted curiosity, with little of the iconoclastic weirdness on which the Residents built their reputation.

My own theory is that the band actually broke up (perhaps more than once) after the difficult gestation of their classic "Eskimo" album in 1979. Certainly a lot of their subsequent efforts, this one included, sound more like the work of a one-man studio band: notice, for example, the more frequent appearance of guest musicians in later years.

All speculation, of course. But the instrumentation here is particularly thin for an ostensible quartet, performed for the most part on what sounds like a limited array of digital synths.

And while I hate playing the comparison/contrast game, it's hard not to be reminded of Nick Cave's evocative song-story "The Carney" (from his 1986 album "Your Funeral...My Trial"). In just over eight minutes the Post-Punk raconteur conjures all the allegorical unease never quite achieved in the 48-total minutes of this album.

Lucky owners of the original "Bad Day" CD-Rom might enjoy it, but for the rest of us this companion disc exists in a creative vacuum, with no real point of reference.
