Prog Reviewer
4 stars "Freak Out" was the debut recording for Frank ZAPPA and his "Mothers of Invention" who managed to write and record a brilliant and wickedly charming album. Of course in typical fashion, ZAPPA coveys over 2 albums a satirical and huge audio counter-strike to the flower power sensibilities. The funny thing about this album is that the music fits the 60's themes with lots of quirkly little tunes filled with ZAPPA'esque humour. "Freak Out" was arguably rock music's first true "concept album" mixing ZAPPA's aural zaniness with lots of psychedelic guitars, outspoken political commentary, cultural satire, and avant-garde musical sensibilities. Musically this album is dripping with a wide range of cleverly crafted pop tunes and contains lots of bebob toe tapping music. Clearly one of my favourite psychedelic albums of all time. A pure masterpiece !.
