2 stars Beefheart's last studio album before he gave up music, relocated into the Mojave desert and concentrated on his painting.

For those who like the more 'out there' Beefheart this will not disappoint. I've owned it a long time and never got to grips with it apart from the track I bought it for, "Ice Cream for Crow" which is a shuffling, pretty accessible number reminiscent of the "Shiny Beast" material, minus horns.

The rest is just a little too weird for me. Still at least he ended up in this sort of vein rather than in Bluejeans and Moonbeams/Unconitionally Guaranteed territory, which were just TOO accessible
