Goes great with mushrooms

"I've yet to find a disk that goes better with mushrooms. Sit back,relax and enjoy the ride."
The Residents Most Successful Concept Album
David Fields | Lincoln, Nebraska United States | 06/04/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If it weren't for their ability to make everything sound wierd, there is no doubt in my mind that this album had the potential to being a successful stage production. It has pathos in stacks that go to the ceiling of Fillmore West, and it seeths in anger. The music is listenable, and the concept is easy to understand. In this album, the Residents tell a story of the Moles, an underground civilization, that are forced out of their caverns because of a natural catastrophy and are forced to live amongst the Chubs. As a result, tension and civil war results.There is no resolution to this story, and that probably is reflective on the Residents alleged Louisiana background, where the civil war still rages in the blood of folks like David Duke. If there is any criticism to this album, it is the flat sound of the music, made by moog-like instruments, and sounding as if they were filtered by an old sock.If there is a Resident fan out there without this CD, stock up on it soon."
Fun fun fun!

"What is it? It's spooky! It's political! It's not that political! It's not that spooky! It's the Residents doing a concept album! Well. What did you expect? It tells a story, and it's fun. Unfortunately, the Intermission tracks that used be on the CD have been remastered on it's own CD and we are charged extra money for them. This CD and Intermission work well together. This album is ESSENTIAL anyway."
