It's great! One of my most fave Quads and Zappa albums. 10 for the mix, 9 for the music. Call it 10.

A great mix. There's a lot going on here. Not lots of fancy engineering tricks, just a good solid "Discreet" mix.

Musically, it is both one of Zappa's more commercial albums and one of his best. 5 of 7 tracks are absolutely stellar. Dinah-Moe Humm and Montana are among the best tracks he ever did.

My first copy was Q8. I don't like the WB gray cartridges having no picture on the cartridge itself. The artwork is only on the wrap around. Small bitch, I guess. As soon as I upgraded to CD-4, I rebought it. Bought it a third time on Ryko CD.

Zappa told the tale of some joker at his concert yelling a request, "play Whippin' Floss." The guy must thought he was at a Frank Allman concert.

YOU NEED IT!!
