My first C.B.H album and as far as debut albums go its pretty good

This is a very bluesy album (obviously) which features a young Ry Cooder on guitar giving it that trade mark Ry Cooder sound we know and love . Also C.B.H was spending a lot of time with Frank Zappa around this time period and the Zappa influence is clearly heard on this album

Note 1: this album was originally rejected by the record company for being too out there , which of course is totally ridiculous

Note 2: "Plastic Factory" sounds suspiciously like The Doors "Light My Fire" which was released just prior to this albums recording . Listen to both tracks back to back and tell me there isn't a similarity ?

Good stuff Don Van Vliet

Complice un giovanissimo Ry Cooder alla chitarra, "Safe as milk" è un ottimo disco con alcune punte ( "Zig zag wanderer", "Autumn's child"… ) di assoluto rilievo.

Just a wonderful album! A lot of catchy tunes and Beefhart's vocals though rough are spot on her. I felt it dipped when it got the instrumentals but then Flower Pot comes along and it picks right back up. Would highly recommend.

Beefhearts debut and a shocking album from an amazing year in music. More accessible than trout mask but still had to shock listeners even in these experimental times. Very blues based acid garage sound. A more primitive sound to beef hearts vision at this time. A truly great debut from one of rocks most creative minds.

This is the best Captain Beefheart record. Safe as milk, is a stunning mix of psychedelic bluesy rock and soul, every song is great; zig zag wanderer, dropout boogie, and the lovely soul number, I'm glad, all help to make this LP a masterpiece. Forget, trout mask replica, never got to grips with that record, this is Beefheart's true classic.

Fantastic! I love the weird and eccentric, but Trout Mask has never been something I fell in love with. The relative accessibility of this album makes it much more instantly appealing.

I didn't know what to expect from this album, but it was better. The garage band sound plus a little Motown ("Blues with a side of surrealism," as Mr. November put it) produces consistently interesting tracks.
