    One of the songs I've been listening to on a rainy day for years

    Randomly listened to this album on my drive home from work. It's still like a breath of fresh air.

    Also, obligatory "they don't make 'em like this anymore!"

    Not a huge electronica fan, but I can NOT stop listening to this song. Sounds like 80's era Missing Persons.

    I really did myself a disservice not getting into Zappa earlier. This man was a genius.

    He is an absolute genius (no hyperbole). I really got into him a couple of years ago, but man...his catalog is so overwhelming that it's hard to figure out where to go next. I started with Joe's Garage and then moved on to all of his You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore live albums.

    Sometimes I literally have to stop listening because it makes me feel so inadequate as a musician. Seriously.

    I'm playing Over-Nite Sensation and I go between marvelling at the nuance and skill of the musicianship to spitting my coffee out at the lyrics. Its like Mozart meets Weird Al or something.

    The most unbelievable thing is the guy wasn't even on drugs. Just a musical savant. He took every genre and gimmick and turned it inside out.

    My first exposure to Zappa. Freshman in college, smoking weed for the first time at an upperclassman's party and at about 3am, he pulls out a VHS tape and tells me he wants to show me a drummer he's really into. I just remember sitting on that couch, drunk and stoned, watching this VHS tape thinking WTF?? I was still in my Police/Rush phase and wasn't ready for this at all. LOL...
