4 stars Do you like fishing? Do you like metal/funk with a redneck frontman? Do you like acid? well you're in luck!! Primus is the name, and all these things are their game as they take you on journeys into unknown territory that sometimes make no sense hence their humour. My skater brother introduced them to me in the early nineties and they are definitely one of the bands that are unclassifiable..... people that could love them can include everyone from a hardcore prog lover, to skaters, to surfers and even death metal heads. This album is a great intro to any new primus listener, as they will immediately recognize the skill of these 3 guys. Les is a pioneer in bass playing and experimentation, and has some of the greats as his influence. Even though I like Brain, and love the brown album in its own way, I am more partial to pick an album with this one for instance as ""to defy..." and "harold" are some of my favorite songs from this power trio. For fans of Rush/slayer/james brown/bela fleck/ basically anyone really..... as long as you can have an open mind Some say they are an acquired taste..... this may be true, but really you just gotta be open and have fun with them. Dont make the mistake of classifying them with groups like Anglagard, Crimson, Estradasphere, or Mahavishnu, as you might not allow yourself to appreciate them for what they are.
