2 stars This surely makes for an interesting combination! I really wasn't sure what you would get when you combine an excellent avant-garde band with the Discovery Channel, but the results are pretty good. Apparently, this album was recorded by the Residents for a Discovery Channel documentary of some sort. I haven't actually seen the program, but I'm sure that this music would most definitely compliment it.

The Residents do a fantastic job incorporating tribal tones with their already established avant-garde way of doing things. The tracks all flow together very nicely, as the album itself is very thematic. This album is also the most accessible Residents' album I have heard so far. There are no out-there weird vocals (actually no vocals at all!!!) or aspects of bizarre compistion and structure. The album is altogether very tame and fits along well with "jungle" themes and ideas.

This isn't a Residents album to start out with, but every fan should look into checking this album out. The final product is actually much better than you would think. Although I like this album, I think it's for Residents' fans only, so I have to award it two stars, but like I said, anyone interested, should check this album out.
