2.0 poorEasterInTheBatcave | August 14th 16

Tired of living off welfare and magnanimous parental donations, Beefheart released the decidedly commercial The Spotlight Kid. It's hated by all the band members; they cite the boring, simplistic compositions and Beefheart's dictatorial attitude. Ultimately, it's not a terrible album, but it's nowhere near the brilliance of Trout Mask or Lick My Decals; it's pretty dull, yes, and while Beefheart gives it his best shot, the band sounds uninspired. "Alice in Blunderland" and "There Ain't No Santa Claus on the Evenin' Stage" are the best cuts.
