5 stars My absolute favorite album from Frank Zappa. Start to finish, it is the perfect combination of craziness and sing along tunes with many memorable moments. Absolutely Free is so far ahead of it's time, and it is still relevant 51 years later. From 1967, it blends a little 50s rock, 60s rock, and 70s rock that has not even been established yet. If I had to choose favorite tracks, it would be Plastic People, Call any vegetable, Why Don'tcha Do Me Right?, and Brown Shoes Don't Make It. BUT it is an injustice not to listen to this adventure from start to finish as it touches on reoccurring themes. When it finishes, I am disappointed that it is over. Every song has memorable moments, and the flow of the album keeps it moving at a brisk pace. Absolutely Free is not an entry point to the world of Zappa, but is a masterpiece that stands the test of time.
