Good album for bongo parties and weenie roasts
Johnny Zhivago | The Frozen Forests of Wisconsin | 07/01/2004

"Frank Zappa was a very talented composer and musician, with a wide range of classical, rock, and jazz influences. This is a collection of a few of his humorous songs, which poke fun at a variety of people. One of the funniest parts of this album is how he adds bits from other songs into his music (The Doors' "Light my Fire" in and "Whip it" by Devo in "Tinseltown Rebellion"; Cream's "Sunshine of your Love" and "Purple Haze" by Jimi Hendrix in "We're Turning Again"; Frank Sinatra's "All the Way" in "Catholic Girls"; and Boy George's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" at the end of "He's So Gay"!!) The music in the songs spans a wide variety, from Disco and New Wave to Lounge and Doo-wop. This was a great introduction to the music of Frank Zappa."
Fun fun fun

"This is about as good of a compilation as one could ask for, at least on one cd anyway. Some will say that Frank had a lot more "offensive" stuff than what is on here, but whether or not you find it to be offensive, well, I guess that just depends on what kind of person you are. Let's see, I'm not Jewish, I'm not Catholic, I'm not gay, I'm not a Conservative, and I'm not a religious fanatic. Even if you are a member of one of those said groups, chances are you won't be offended either. Everything is done in such a light-hearted fashion, it's really hard to get stirred up over anything that's here. It's all in good fun. Much like "Strictly Commercial" and "Cheap Thrills" this is great for newcomers and like another reviewer said, if you have any musical integrity whatsoever, it will inspire you to dig deeper. It's good for anyone really, whether you're just a casual fan or a die-hard. This is essential."

"This is a great cd! Most of the tracks have either been remixed, remastered, edited or totally reconstructed by FZ himself. Dumb All Over is a live never before released gem with a great FZ guitar solo! The sound is fabulous. Zappa perfected a genre that could be called song-stos or short stories in song, using the rhapsodic techniques he had developed. The interest of the listener is kept through myriad changes in the drum meters, riffs, fills, background vocals, special effects, unusual chord sequences, swift tranformations in mood and tone, and the like. It's a powerful genre, and Zappa's researches point out a new direction for American operatic form. There is something in this collection to offend everyone - ..., Jewishes princesses, feminists, Christains, satanists, record executives, the Musicians union, young women from the San Fernando Valley, partisans of the Parisian toilet kiosk, insecure young men who like to dance in clubs, Jimi Hendrix fans, and punkers with chops, to mention a few. Satirical anthropology, pure and simple."
