    Intensly absurd and as much as it's humerous, it's depth and serious musical integrity make this an odd yet a Zappa l.p I have a reat fondness for.

    Absolutely ridiculous album. Fun to listen to, even if it's a little beyond me.

    I received this album as gift in 96 and I just couldn't pass the first song! Now after 15 years found it again, and guess what it is just as annoying as it was back in 96 hauhauahuahauha
