I've seen them live 3 times and it was always a joy. Every album is a winner. Can't go wrong there.

One of the most unique bands in history. Not always my favorite but respect at the highest level for them. Pork Soda especially was truly great.

Primus definitely should be rated higher than they are. I haven't heard anything bad from them yet. Their music is some of the most unique music ever made. Les is the bass god, Ler is great guitarist too, adding a psychedelic vibe, and Herb is a great drummer too. Their live shows are beyond amazing too! Totally underrated on this page. Frizzle Fry is my favorite album by them. Primus Sucks!

Pork Soda and Frizzle Fry (3/5) are extremely unique albums. I've listened to a few albums outside those classics, like Sailing the Seas of Cheese (2.5/5) and (gulp) Suck on This (1.5/5) and Anti-Pop (1/5)

I really don't want to dive into their newer stuff. It seems bad. But I do admit, their first few albums that I have heard, Sailing the Seas of Cheese, Frizzle Fry and Pork Soda are three albums any fan should own. I own Frizzle Fry and Pork Soda.

I'll only rate obviously based on what i've heard.

This band has the most unique sound I have ever heard. Les Claypool is my favorite bass player of all time. Listen to American Life and see for yourself.

From Deckiller 08/28/2012 20:10
One of the best power trios out there. They're funky as hell, and Claypool is a true virtuoso. LaLonde is a very intriguing guitarist, incorporating a variety of avant garde-style guitar techniques. And the gauntlet of drummers that have worked with the band have all been tight, groovy, technical, and powerful.
