Zappa shined when ridiculing stupidity. The average fan of the man’s rock music will most probably feel lost in The Yellow Shark, but for those with interests in his serious music it is an essential item, more so than the London Symphony Orchestra and Orchestral Favorites albums. […]

Stereophile
The Yellow Shark is simultaneously Zappa’s least compromised recordingand an album of Zappa music for people who, until now, have hated Zappa music. For the rest of us, it’s what we’ve waited for his entire life. If you’ve never bought a Zappa album, start here—it’s one for the ages. And thanks, Frank, for everything. […]

kill ugly radio
Listening to Yellow Shark shows the depth of his composing and arranging abilityand it is amazing to find so many references to his older works built in to the music. Influences such as Stravinsky, Bartok, Webern etc abound in Yellow Shark, but also FZ himself is distinctively in the music. […]
