4 stars Freak Out! is the debut album of the Mothers Of Invention, released in 1966, Frank Zappa was 26 years old. He was mellow enough to start his magnificent career. If I say this is Prog- rock, I make a big mistake, because this is more, (consider this album is so ahead of its time!) this record is Avant-garde, and it contains: Proto-prog, Beat, Psychedelia, Doo-Wop, Blues and more... One thing I cannot omit is that Freak Out is a very courageous album... If you are asking yourself why, just pick it up and listen to The Return Of The Son Of Monster Magnet first, then listen to Help I'm A Rock and Trouble Every Day. These three tracks, for different reasons, are very brave. And also the idea of a double album (the first in music history!) it was made with courage... I think that Frank Vincent risked a lot with this album. Fortunately he did it right! Freak Out! is unique, because Zappa never did again the same things.
