Review by Cygnus X-2
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Much like the previous cover album Rhinoplasty has Primus paying tribute to the artists that inspired them and for the most part I enjoy this incarnation a lot more than Miscellaneous Debris, which was too short and the song selection was mostly underwhelming (despite two great songs in Intruder and Have a Cigar). This album is a lot more rounded out and has a lot more memorable pieces than the previous effort and is a lot more satisfying as well. The variance in material and the artists presented is quite nice and the variety of the style of pieces themselves is also terrific, you get everything from Metallica to The Police in one convenient little package. On top of all those covers are three Primus songs, two live songs and one reworking, but more on that when the time comes.

The album opens with the XTC song Scissor Man, which for the most part is an enjoyable song with some nonsensical vocals from Claypool as well as some great arpeggio based guitar themes from LeLonde. A fun piece and really opens the album nicely (and it's a lot better than the XTC cover on Miscellaneous Debris). Next is The Family and The Fishing Net, from Peter Gabriel's fourth studio album. Claypool replicates that Tony Levin bass sound very well and LeLonde performs the guitar material quite well and Mantia fits as a Jerry Marotta type drummer to begin with so his drumming is good as well. Like with Intruder, Claypool gives a trying effort on vocals but in the end he doesn't really compare to the original Gabriel performance. Silly Putty is a Stanley Clarke piece that has some great lead playing from Claypool and a fun chord progression as well as DJ Disk getting a spin or two, which is very interesting for this piece. Great instrumental. Amos Moses is probably my least favorite song on the album. It isn't particularly interesting and the overall feel isn't that great to begin with. Behind My Camel is an instrumental written by The Police and was featured on their Zenyatta Mondatta album. Although while not as great as the original version, this is a great effort on the whole. Claypool and Mantia get into a nice groove a la Copeland/Sting and LeLonde's guitar tones are similar to that of Andy Summers and the playing is spot on.

Next is a reworking of the song Too Many Puppies off of Frizzle Fry, which is in my opinion a worthless song. It doesn't prove of any use, except that Primus was willing to experiment with a completely different arrangement of a good piece to begin with (although Claypool's bass sound is pretty cool). The Thing that Should Not Be is a Metallica song that hails on Master of Puppets. The version here is pretty cool because it gives the listener a clue on what Claypool would have sounded like had be been selected to be in Metallica after Cliff Burton died (he was rejected because of his lead oriented and funky style). The final two songs on the album are live tracks of Tommy the Cat and Bob's Party Time Lounge. Tommy the Cat has always been a fantastic song live, and this version is no different, especially because of the Mantia drum solo in the middle and Claypool's fantastic bass interplay. Bob's Party Time Lounge was one of the better pieces off of the disappointing Brown Album and here the extension pays off well with some great extended instrumental interludes.

In the end, Rhinoplasty should only really be bought by people who know who Primus are and have at least listened to a few of their albums. It's definitely not for everyone, but if you like covers then you might find some enjoyment out of this eclectic lot. Not a masterpiece by far, but not a complete disappointment, somewhere in the middle. 3/5.

3 stars Primus pays tribute to their musical heroes on this 1998 EP release. Like 1992's EP Miscellaneous Debris, this album contains mostly cover songs, which run the gamut from post-punk to countryto jazz-funk to metal. Fun is the operative word here as in Les, Ler, and Brain had a lot of fun making t ... (read more)
