While it isn't my favorite Mothers release, I do think it is the perfect culmination of all the ideas present in the early part of Zappa's career. It has the pop flavor of Freak Out as well as the heavy jazz influence of Hot Rats.

Weird, but great if taken as a whole work of art, including cover art and track titles.

Hairymarx: That's just a bonus track added later on, so technically it does rank as another Zappa masterpiece for you ;D

This would rank as another Zappa masterpiece if not for the overlong and rambling film-clip interlude. Why, oh why?

Zappa can even make gibberish work. This is a brilliant, underrated work.
