4 stars MOP is mainly based on Zappa's experience of the "famous" explicit lyrics sticker hearings, resulting in the censorship by not distributing the records. Funny sideeffect: Jazz from hell a 100% instrumental record was on this list. So the main dish on MOP is Porn Wars, a very funny(or not so funny, seeing the final decision) collage of the senator hearings, Zappas typical comments and lots of editing, synclavier stuff etc.We 're turning again makes fun of the old "hippie"bands still around and Yo cats does the same for Jazz musicians (Jazz is not dead it just smells funny). Alien Orifice and What's new are nice group instrumentals which have been integrated in the life material.The rest is synclavier stuff... Well I love Zappa, but I never quiet liked his synclavier stuff, not so much for the compositions but the cheesy sounds. L'Ensemble moderne recorded a record of Zappa music and the synclavier compositions sound much better played by "real" musicians.
Alucard | 4/5 |
