5 stars Watch out this record! Fingerprince is one of the very classic THE RESIDENTS record and one of their masterpieces. As they define it, this proggressive-bunny-hop album is divided in two sections (three, if we conider the Babyfingers EP) corresponding to both sides of the record. The first one is a collection of "simple" songs, as a curcle stanrting and ending in "You Yes Yes Yes", with great songs and interludes among them. Side B contains the outstanding suite "Six Things to a Cycle", one of the best works on all their career; not to miss the work on perecussion, absolutely incredible! Weirdy record with lot of inventive playing, an unbeatable record impossible to be conceived by anyone but THE RESIDENTS.

Avantgarde on the top: 5 stars, althoguh many listeners wonīt agree or will even dislike it.

p.s. Babyfingers, the EP that appeared in some editions and completed the work, is similar in conception as Fingerprince, a side with short songs and side B with a long song, "Walter Westinghouse", a true classic in his music and has been played live many times in different arrangements. Although tis EP is quite good in itself, itīs not worth buying it unless you are a completionist of the band
