4.0 excellentJared Floryan | December 21st 14

Deep inside a pool of seltzer water, the flames on your head suddenly can't be extinguished and gun-toting cats are visiting whilst riding fossils away from rocks. The quirky, stomach-churning, but accessible strengths holding the reins of Doc at the Radar Station are reasonably responsible for this incorrigibly intimate situation. Don Van Vliet, better known by the stage moniker 'Captain Beefheart', delivers amusing vocals all while the blues-influenced guitar work keeps things steady and many miles from shallowness. Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band sound mesmerizing enough for me to go experience other material, specifically Trout Mask Replica.

It's not really "the best batch yet" but it's a great album nonetheless, even if probably the worst of the 78-82 trilogy.
