4 stars Again, this album contains some funny & pleasant moments, as reveal the miscellaneous lead & backing vocals + the narrative vocals on "We're Turning Again". The percussion work is absolutely outstanding (fast & complex xylophone among others). Some tracks are rhythmic & elaborated, while others are complex, darker & more dissonant, always very structured, instrumental with sophisticated crystal clear Synclavier & keyboards parts, a bit like on the "Jazz from hell" album. Indeed the tracks have different styles: "Yo Cats" has a very particular retro pop style; "I Don't Even Care" is a visceral rhythmic rock song. Zappa has couples of excellent guitar solos here which are less monolithic. The only bad track is "H.R. 2911", where one can hear the Zappa's piggy sounds, like he used to do on the "Weasels ripped my flesh" album.

Rating: 4.5 stars
