3 stars "Im The Slime"/"Montana" is a single release by US experimental rock artist Frank Zappa. The single was released in 1973 through the Discreet Records label. Both the A-side and B-side tracks are taken from the album "Overnight Sensation (1973)".

"Montana" features some silly but entertaining lyrics about growing dental floss on a farm. The music is well played and the track is overall well composed. In addition to the more regular vers/chorus structure of the track, and a Frank Zappa guitar solo, theres a great middle section with some high pitched vocals and rather complex playing featured on the track. The singles A-side is "Im The Slime" which is the second track on "Overnight Sensation (1973)". While the lyrics to "Montana" are rather silly, the lyrics to "Im The Slime" are more serious and thought provoking. Essentially they are about not trusting everything that comes out of your TV. Some great female vocal sections by the Ikettes on this one.

So the material on this single are killer, but since both tracks are already featured on "Overnight Sensation (1973)" it reduces the value of the release and a 3 star (60%) rating is therefore warranted.

UMUR | 3/5 |
