From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

1 stars I've been a forum member here for a long time, and I rarely make album reviews, but I had to for this one. In reading reviews about this CD by my fellow prog fans, I'm sad to see how many people think that this is progressive or even good. This album sucks. No doubt, it is creative (to an extent) and certainly not mainstream. Granted too that Les Claypool is hands down the best rock bassist to have appeared in the 90s. Regardless, the guitarist and drummer contribute little to the music, and the Zappa/Captain Beefheart-esque strangeness adds nothing to the music. I'm not criticizing Zappa or Captain Beefheart, but that humorous approach to Primus' style of music does nothing for it. Not to mention, Claypool is an abysmal vocalist. As mentioned before, the songs are incredibly repetitive. Groovy, yes, but nothing about them holds my attention. This is the only CD I ever bought by Primus, and it strongly discouraged me from trying others.
