Used to hate, now I love it
Ryan Dante | Ann Arbor, MI (A community of musical magpies) | 11/30/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I just want to say that I am not an art student or a philosopher. I am a high schooler with a wide-ranging palette of musical tastes, but I have to admit that when I bought this CD, I wanted my thirteen dollars back. I didn't get the irony of the whole CD, and I thought that it was immature noise. However, I listened to the CD a couple of times because I figured that I might as well, I bought it after all. I found that beneath the avant-garde sound and dada-esque cover was a catchy and fun, albeit warped, pop album. Now, it is one of my desert island discs, and I think this album really helped me open my mind to other types of music. My family still thinks it sounds like something a retard in a studio would make, and I am still surprised when I hear myself humming the piano part from "Numb Erone". This is an essential album, and there's nothing else like it."
Oh sweet taste on my Ear.

"This is where it all began! Long before they took on their eyeball personas, the Residents sacreliged The Beatles.
Each one of these 20 odd songs here have the famous atonal lyrics and out of tune instrumentals that they later refined to an art.

Although this music is difficult music to listen to for the novice... just like fine wine... it is an aquired taste! Listen to this album continuously for 5 playings! (with or without 'attitude adjustments') Once you do that you will understand the weird world that the anonymous band lives in and expresses throgh their art. After you do that, buy their epic album "The Big Bubble" from Amazon! Once you listen through that trainwreck you will be an irretrievable Eyeball Audiophile!"
