What you can hear on this record already is the true nature of an artist. But the band was still evolving into what it has become. The metrics used were a clue of what would come.
Also the sound of this record is really crunchy and yammy. Nice tape saturation sound.

From Brad1770
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.

From glynspsa
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.
