The title of track 11 is, in my opinion, what this album is.
one of Zappa's best
Criticizing psychedelic rock while making very bad psychedelic rock.
My journey to listen to the BEA Top 500 ( twice ) has taken me to my 2nd Zappa album hot on the heals of 'Freak Out'
Picture if you can an art gallery with an abstract painting of wild colors and swiggly lines . Then picture 2 art critics inspecting said painting , critic 1 loves it and declares it a masterpiece whilst critic 2 absolutely hates it and claims it is nothing more than a bunch of swiggly lines . This album is exactly like that scenario
'We're Only In It For The Money ' isn't an album with traditional music and song structures per se rather its a concept art piece that satirizes the hippy sub culture , politics and Sgt.Peppers Album . Its sum is greater than its parts & you either love it or hate it , there's no middle ground here
I get what is being presented here but I don't dig it , its all too unconventional for my tastes
I 100% agree with a previous comment that states this album isn't as smart as it thinks it is , that absolutely hits the nail on the head
Not really my favorite Zappa stuff.
Underrated in here, the humour is very dumb, I know, but that´s part of the appeal.
Fascinating and wildly experimental music. Sample music decades in front of the pack and maybe more revolutionary than the album it was mocking. I thought the album was still going but it was the guy across the road mowing his lawns.
Un disco bastante divertido y extraño a la vez, algunos temas me parecieron entrar al terreno de la experimentación de una manera excesiva, sin lugar a dudas no es un disco para todos, entiendo el porque es tan querido y respetado por algunos aunque para mi no lo sea a ese nivel considero que vale la pena escucharlo
This album is wildly creative and proposes some really amazing political commentary. Musicianship is pretty great, despite the deceivingly messy sound. This is just all around a clever and unique piece of art with a really amazing personality.
Sadly there is a lot of just pretentious noise all over this album that isn't used in an effective way. This is also not an album is for people who like pretty songs (there a couple nice tunes). It is for someone willing to sit down and listen for about half an hour and really enjoy the experience.
This album is polarizing but beautiful in a very unique way no other album I've heard is.
An attack on hippiedom. We're only it in for the money, has some wonderful moments, but as a whole it flatters to deceive. Considering that a lot of the artists they aim to tear down are making music much cleverer and original than the Mothers are at this point kind of makes a mockery of an album that is already making a mockery. Still, some excellent bits here and there but as a whole, extremely messy. Not quite as good as it thinks it is.
