CD Reviews

Very clever - but almost no soul
S J Buck | Kent, UK | 08/06/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is not going to be to everybodys taste. Certainly the vast majority of Jazz fans will NOT like this. Its also likely that a lot of Zappa fans will not like it either.

This is music produced on a synclavier, an early computer musical instrument. Musically very complicated, with Zappa playing quarter tones and complicated rhythms. Repeated listens will reveal some marvellous moments particularly on the St. Etienne which as previous reviewers have commented has a great guitar solo. This is the one track that does have some soul. However the rest did leave me feeling a bit cold.

So overall this is really a curates egg of an album, that some may like and as the title suggests others may hate!
