"Why do many people not like this cd? I am a long time Residents fan and it is one of my favorites by them. The George side is very soothing and respectful of the original material, with just the right touch of their trademark creepiness. The James side is an absolute stunner. That voice!!! I crack up every time I hear "I wanna hear you say OWWWWWWW"You should give it another chance."

"At first I thought the American Composer Series was a stupid idea, well this album rocks! The George side includes 3 awesome covers of his works and is great to mellow-out to. The James side is good too. I thought his voice would be totally unbearable, but I actually kinda like it. Worth it for "I'll Go Crazy" alone."
Interesting but clinical

"The Gershwin tracks are minimalist deconstructions sounding a bit clinical although they have their eerie phases. The James tracks have their amusing moments, especially in the audience participation and I suppose they go a long way to deconstructing James Brown' legendary Live At The Apollo set, but of course it lacks soulfulness, thereby completely missing out on the point of James Brown's music. The structure is there, but it's like a mere skeleton without the flesh of the soul, with the possible exception of Night Train which is quite rousing. I can't imagine this music having anything but an intellectual appeal. Rather give me The Residents with Snakefinger doing their own stuff!"
