4 stars Like, OH MY GOD! This album is sooooo bitchin'

Like?. TOTALLY!

More bitchin' than shopping at the Galleria in Encino

It's like finding some totally whacked out shoes

And some totally wild ass clothes

It's just like so super BITCHIN'!

It's like, yeah i know "No Not Now" sounds like Alvin & The Chipmunks meets The Turtles with a super S&M bass line slappin' my ass but OH MY GOD! It's so ear wormy!

Like so apple core-ish and all

Like how can we ignore Moon Unit in her magic moment

Like she was totally woken up from her Valley slumber when her dad totally woke her up to improvise the lyrics to the only FRANK ZAPPA top 40 hit ever! It's tubular, ya know

Yeah, "Valley Girl" is like such a beastie. It slaps you like being dressed in a leather teddy screamin' "hurt me, hurt me!," i am so sure! But so freakin' wild and uncharted territory!

If you don't see the brilliance in this i am so sure that you need to like bag yer face!

You're like totally blitzed

Stop being Lord God King BU-FU and stop playing with your rings

If you think "I Come From Nowhere" with this review you can like totally bag your toenails which are totally gross cuz i like totally dig the strange time sigs that fit the music like a nice pair of jeans fit my freaky butt

No it's not grody to the max, this is some cool 80s meets 70s freakiness that just begs the open minded listener to readjust their expectations

Like OH MY GOD!

Can you not evolve!

I mean don't be a total space cadet!

You don't have to wash the dishes and clean the cat box to move on!

This isn't "Burnt Weeny Sandwich" world anymore!

Like don't totally diss this album as 80s swill

Just listen to the title track and like WHOAH!

It's like totally tubular with everything Zappa-esque like totally freaking me out TOTALLY!

I'm sooooo sure!

It's like totally progressive and catchy at the same time

Like OH MY GOD!

It's the ultimate anti-BARF ME OUT and gag me with a spoon!

Maybe not as clean as playing Pac-Man but i'm def

On this album there are "Envelopes," you know, the totally cool things that they used to put letters in and OMG! it like totally turns into "Teenage Prostitute" which has like major diva action just making me feel like an opera has blossomed from the avant-rock catalog

This is just one wickedly cool spin that never makes me feel like i've just gone to the orthodontist and like never leaves me totally bummed!

It like so makes me feel so BITCHIN' and never makes me feel like i'm cleaning someone's food off the plates with someone else's saliva sticking to the utensils but no biggie really

It's like getting my braces off but it's like NEVER grodie to the max, it's never as ugly as my smile and it like totally never makes me wanna scream "GAG ME WITH A SPOON!"

SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVE A DROWING WITCH like totally rocks my world!

If taken in the perspective of ZAPPA evolution then this is like bitchin' waaaaaay cool

For those stuck in jazz-fusion territory then like no way :o

You will totally find this like such a total bummer like that stuff that totally sticks to the plates

If you are totally open-minded and have no connections to the ZAPPA past

I'm like so sure you won't find this totally nauseating in like a totally good way!

Otherwise you will like BARF OUT

And gag yourself with a spoon which is like totally gross!

I am sooooooooooooo sure

Like

Totally
