Zappa, Frank - You Are What You Is CD

SKU 28-ZPRCZR3864.2
Originally a double lp, here it all is complete on 1 CD.

"Actually, I don't like You Are What You Is in its entirety, but the parts of it that I like are so good that I thought I couldn't give the album less than full five stars. To me, You Are What You Is is a strange album. To me, it would have been a LOT better if it contained just two sides - second and fourth. Two suites ("Society Pages" to "Conehead" and "Heavenly Bank Account" to the end) are THE BEST the mighty Frank have done in the 80's. Action-packed to the level of milliseconds, with dazzling vocal arrangements and superb songwriting, these hilarious mini-operas appeal to me more every time I listen to them. The work of genius. That said, I don't care for mediocre songs like "Doreen" and "Dumb All Over", and "Mudd Club" makes me want to puke. Two different worlds meet on this bizarre album, but the eleven songs out of twenty make the whole project more than worthwhile."
