Frank Zappa Reviews
Five years ago, when this albums was new to me–and I didn’t know anything about the recording-details–I’d have given it 5/5 stars. Now, after an endless amount of careful listening I can’t say I’d feel comfortable giving it more than 3.5 or 4 …hard to decide, because it IS a great band! […]

Unbelievable that FZ could make this. Again he released an album that was totally different from anything he did before. Satire on public life in the USA in the mid 80s. […]
