4 stars Originally I always found it hard listening to The Residents, but every time a heard one of their compositions it made me want to get a full album experience. Still once I quenched that curiosity it wasn't all that satisfying. Surprisingly enough it was Meet The Residents that made me entirely change my opinion about this band. Even while purchasing this particular release I was certain that it would be spectacular. The first time I listened though it was, once again, somewhat troublesome but I still got the overall feel of the album which in my case could be considered a good sign!

During my next listens I found that The Residents can be quite enjoyable! The thought of this album being released in 1974 blows my mind even today, since I can't find anyone (or anything, for that matter) else like that during that period of time. My favorite track is and will probably always be N-er-gee (Crisis Blues) because it's the most daring and exciting composition out of the bunch.

If you're looking for an introduction album to the weird and crazy world of The Residents then this is definitely the place to start!
