4.5 superbsmaugman | August 23rd 15

Recorded under a year apart from Zappa's "Apostrophe", Over-nite Sensation sounds similar, but with greater instrumental play and songwriting and just a tad longer.

3.5 greatSsPpAaMm | July 29th 14

You ever have an album that everyone around you seemed to swear up and down was better than great but you just could never get in to? That was this album for me. The songs on an individual level I think are pretty great. There is just something about the album in general that has never clicked for me. This album still merits a 3.5 from me but this is no where near the first Zappa album I reach for.
