This is the first Zappa album I’ve ever heard and probably my favorite to this day. I first heard this album on a car trip with my friend and his dad. As soon as I heard the first track I thought What the hell is this guy talking about Dont eat the yellow snow? Then I heard the rest of the album and was impressed and was hooked on Zappa […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
If the concept of yellow snow strikes you as screamingly funny, go snap this record up. Otherwise… The album’s a parody of concept albums, but concept albums had already reached the level of self- parody years beforeand it’s just pointless. The mock storyline, something about an Eskimo, is too stupid to be offensive. […]

Rolling Stone
Zappa dispels such thoughts quite convincingly on the title cut — an outrageous jam with Jim Gordon’s thundering drums and Jack Bruce’s bumblebee bass. Truly a mother of an album. […]
