5 stars A very good album, indeed. Most music listeners probably couldn't stand the sound of this music (even most prog fans!) but I loved it. Complex time signatures, (good) improvisation, and superb drumming, too. In fact, I think the drumming is my favorite part of the album, but don't get me wrong, the rest of the music was also amazing. The first side (History and Prospects) was my favorite part of the album. Another interesting note to add for people who haven't listened to this album yet is that you will have a fairly hard time trying to connect the music on this album to rock music. It's very much like chamber music, but that didn't stop me from loving this album. If you like out of the ordinary music with complex time signature changes with jazz and classical influences, or if your favorite music is the majority of Frank Zappa's material, than it would be safe for me to say that you should get this album. I loved every second of it, and I think you would, too...
