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.
One of the greatest albums ever. It makes me picture being outside in the middle of the night trying to break into a telephone booth.
It knocks psychedelic artists of the time like The Beatles and Hendrix off their 'god-like' pedestal, yet at the same time, seems to be paying tribute to them.
I like this as "art", but I don't really like it as music. I like the ideas it conveys, etc. But not something I'd revisit often.
great album by a great visionary
One of the best albums of all time.
A zany Zappa spoof, but I've never found this particularly convincing as a musical exercise. It's more like political and cultural dada in the studio. Or just self-indulgence. Helps to be buzzed.
Just found Avant-Garde and Psychedelic Rock as of recent through Pink Floyd's earlier years. Other than Trout Mask Replica, this would be my favorite of this style. Between the satire toward both sides of society as well as their mockery of song structure make this one of the better albums of all time.
A lot of people are seemingly impressed by weirdness and the social commentary. I can appreciate the weirdness, there are a lot of us who have a very off the wall absurd sense of humour. Zappa is far from unique in this; perhaps a lot of the boring types fail to understand this because they're not that type.
A very funny album with some serious bits of good music. Unfortunately, sometimes is not as good as it could be because of all the chaotic conceptual choice.
