5 stars The Residents are a band that takes some time to get used to, for some people. There certainly isn't anything else out there that sounds even remotely like them However, once you get into their music, you discover something very fresh and rewarding.

"Hitler Was a Vegetarian" is quite possibly the greatest prog epic ever. It's far more diverse and interesting than "Supper's Ready", and far more emotional than "Close To The Edge". Snakefinger's "Hey Jude" solo is possibly the most beautiful tear-jerking moments in progressive rock.

The music goes in all sorts of crazy directions. The band covers a variety of oldies tunes, but plays them so differently that it's difficult to recognize most of them. It's brilliant the way the warp these songs and make them their own.

There isn't anything out there that sounds more different than The Residents, and that is why everyone needs to hear them at least once. This record is a great place to start.
