I can't say that I am a diehard Zappa fan, but I immensely enjoy this album. Frank Zappa is amazing at writing music.
No Not Now: Probably the worst on the album, but it is a good listen every once in a while (whenever I find the time to listen to the album all the way through). 3/5
Valley Girl: Frank Zappa's hit song. Insanely funny. I've heard that this song is where the term Valley Girl actually comes from. Wouldn't surprise me if Zappa had coined it. He was an extremely unique and influential guy. 5/5
I Come From Nowhere: The lyrics are decent (although the first stanza is excellent). The real star here is the music, which is excellent. 4.5/5
Drowning Witch: The star of the album. The lyrics are pretty good, but again, the music is what makes the song great. 5/5
Envelopes: Zappa can really write instrumentals. This is one of his best that I've heard so far. 5/5
Teen-Age Prostitute: A decent end to the album. It's kinda cute. 4/5
An excellent album put out by Zappa. 5/5"

"Frankly, I bought this album for the Song, "Valley Girl" which was a hit in the early 80's from Frank's daughter Moon! I had forgotten about his level of musicianship - that man had skills! Four stars!!"
