What is forgotten, however, that while stereotypes are not the norm, personas like the Jewish Princess do exist. Jewish Princesses are not unicorns. If you don’t buy that, maybe you should stay with yo’ mama. Ladies are assholes, too. If you possess one, you can be one. […]
Zappa released over 70 albums throughout the bulk of his career in music, so picking a favorite could be impossible for the average Frank fan, including myself. However, I can assure you that Sheik Yerbouti is one that you can constantly go back to, even when you’ve tired out the old record player. […]

Tentative Reviews
The album is still recommended, but with the warning that not terribly much should be expected from some of the better known tracks… and with the further warning that there are many FZ albums much better than this one that the potential FZ consumer could buy instead. I realize that some people are going to claim that I’m “not getting the joke”. To which I would respond that the joke just isn’t that funny, this time around. […]
