CD Reviews

My Favorate Mother
Bill Your 'Free Form FM Handi Cyber | Mahwah, NJ USA | 05/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is probably my favorate MOI album, though Uncle Meat is more ambitious and objectively better.

But it is hard to beleve Zappa edited this together after this band was kaput. The way Zappa jumps from avant-garde (Didja Get Any Onja) to blistering blues (Directly from my heart to you) to other styles on the album feels entirely natrual, as if no other peice could follow the one that proceeded it. Weasles has a white hot threat throughout, which never lets up.

If you are intersted in Uncle Frank, I can't think of a better starting point. If the music doesn't get you, the cover art will---wouldn't it make a great tattoo?"
It's Zappa at his best

"I had this album (LP) from when I was in college - drove my mother nuts. Now I have it on CD - driving my kids nuts. You just can't argue with timeless classics."
DIRECTLY FROM MY HEART TO YOU
COMPUTERJAZZMAN | Cliffside Park, New Jersey United States | 12/23/2008

"THIS ALBUM IS AN AMALGAM OF THE KIND OF MUSIC THAT FRANK ZAPPA AND THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION WERE PLAYING IN THE LATE 60'S, IT CONTAINS AVANT GARDE, FREE FROM JAZZ, DOO-WOP, BLUES, ROCK, AND EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC ALL ROLLED INTO ONE. I GUESS IT POSSESSES ALL OF THE ELEMENTS THAT WENT INTO THE MUSICAL INFLUENCES OF FRANK ZAPPA, AND THEREFORE, COULD BE CONSIDERED ONE OF HIS MOST "COMPLETE" ALBUMS, IN TERMS OF HIS "CONCEPTUAL CONTINIUTY"- EVEN THO' THESE SONGS WERE RECRODED OVER TIME AND ASEMBLED FOR THIS ALBUM LATER. GREAT VIOLIN PLAYING BY SUGARCANE HARRIS (ON AN OLD LITTLE RICHARD SONG), & MULTI INSTRUMENTS FROM IAN UNDERWOOD. GREAT COVER ART BY CAL SCHENKEL, IT'S ONE OF MY ALLTIME FAVORITE ALBUM COVERS (ALONG WITH "STICKY FINGERS"- COVER ART BY ANDY WARHOL, "BIG BAMBU", & "CHEAP THRILLS"-COVER ART BY R. CRUMB)."
