5 stars I've heard around 300 prog albums but nothing compares with 'Trout Mask'. Forget what sounds like an awful home recording of 'China Pig', everything else is fantastic! Real wacky, off the wall bonkers crazy stuff that sounds tight - I mean really tight!. These guys under Van Vliet were so drilled they daren't make a miniscule mistake within Van Vliet's vision of how things should sound. Suffice to say - it's clearly the best Beefheart album (followed by Lick my Decals off Baby') and is also one my favourite albums of all time. Brilliant, and definitely worth 5 stars for the sheer loopiness of the whole thing. But it's definitely one of those albums you'll either love or hate.
