5 stars captain beefheart is one of the greatest musicians in prog rock. labels don't match with his music. he played everything...fusion,jazz,rock,blues,progrock,garage...with great results. doc at the radar station was the 1st album i bought from him 3 years ago and it took me so long to get into it. the album starts with the excellent hot head and finishes with my all time favourite beefheart song making love to a vampire with a monkey on my knee. the music can be characterized as avant gard a mixture of blues/jazz/fusion...eveyrthing i quess!!! beefheart's voice is so unique, sometimes he sings so purely and sometimes he screams like a maniac doc at the radar station is one of his best records..but i would suggest someone to start wih something easier (although his records are NOT easy listenable) such as safe as milk or spotlight kid. The word progressive really finds its meaning in artists like captain beefheart.
