2 stars This album is certainly not Captain Beefheart's finest hour. "Ice Cream For Crow" was Beefheart's last real effort as a recording artist before his retirement from music, and in my opinion it was not a great note to end on. The opening track "Ice Cream For Crow", is reminiscent of his earlier work and one of the few few truly good songs on the album, along with the almost Canterbury sounding "The Witch Doctor Life" and the two minute long guitar instrumental "Evening Bell". Other than this, the album is fairly bland and mediocre, with the exception of ""81" Poop Hatch", a poem spoken without the aid of instruments by Beefheart, something worth hearing even if you don't like the poem itself. A fairly poor album, but for any Beefheart fan worth having for completion purposes.
