  • This CD is one of Primus’s best. The album is packed from beginning to end with quirky but excellent music. The opening, Seas of Cheese, is a nice introduction, it leads you into the rest of the album. The next two tracks, “Here Come the Bastards” and “Sgt. Baker,” put a real pow into the CD- both great songs that I could listen to over and over. After that comes “American Life,” which adds another dimension to the album; it strays from the mood of the previous tracks, and, of course, is another outstanding song. Next comes one of the most recognizable and popular Primus songs, “Jerry Was a Racecar Driver.” It’s a perfect blend of music- starts out with a relatively soft bass, then builds up until they go into full-rocking out mode with heavy guitar. “Eleven,” “Is It Luck?” and “Grandad’s Little Diddy” are wonderful Primus songs, but I’m skipping them to save space. “Tommy the Cat” features, who else, but Tom Waits. This song takes a few listens, as do most Primus songs, but once you get into it, it becomes one of the highlights of the album. “Sathington Waltz” is like the song “Wounded Knee” from the album Pork Soda. Just seems to be randomly thrown in there just for fun. It’s not bad, but I tend to skip it. Ah, “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers.” One of the favorites of Primus fans. It’s one of the best tracks on the album, featuring a guitar solo and bass guitar solo. This one never seems to get old, you can listen to it over and over. “Fish On” is another classic on the album. And finally, “Los Bastardos” is basically just a continuation of “Here Come the Bastards” with a few extras.With Les Claypool’s quirky bass licks and nasal voice, Larry Lalonde’s complex and flawless guitar riffs, and Tim Alexander’s thundering and almost effortless drumming, you make up an album that never gets boring. This CD is much more than its money’s worth- you’ll get hours and hours of enjoyment from it. This is in no way a let down. Reccommended highly.
