Primus is all about Les Claypool; there isn't a moment on any of their records where his bass isn't the main focal point of the music, with his vocals acting as a bizarre side-show. Which isn't to deny guitarist Larry LaLonde or drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander any credit; no drummer could weave in and around Claypool's convoluted patterns as effortlessly as Alexander, ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best- but still quality. 16 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
Named after the colour brown, Primus return with what they like to call 'The Brown Album' we all do...because that's what it's called. Brilliant. It's no 'Frizzle Fry' or 'Sailing the Seas of Cheese' but it still packs 'em in. 'Shake Hands With Beef' will have you nodding your head up and down untill your neck snaps. 'Golden Boy' will have your foot tapping untill your ankle breaks. 'Over The Falls' will have your hands clicking untill your fingers fall off. So, even though you will lose your neck, ankle and fingers- it is a worthy price to pay in order to listen to this fantastic...ness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Slappers Go MAD!!!! 16 Nov 2000
Format:Audio CD
This in my opinion is the best Primus album, definately the most accessible.
The Bass playing Genius of Les Claypool calms down the bass slapping and concentrates on some truely spectacular lyrics that will have you in stitches....if you like singing in the shower like me.
This is a great album if you are not easily embarrased and feel that music is really about personal taste, its quirkiness is its genius.
For all you muso's out there you will not be disappointed, Brain (the new drummer) has a far simpler style to Herb but this greatly adds to the music, which this time has magnificent songs.
Having seen Primus several times, I can tell you that this stuff is worth a seriously happy mosh!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Sound of Brown 2 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
On most releases, Primus sound like 3 musicians having the perfectly choreographed fight. This is more fluid and conceptual than most Primus releases. Claypool's bass is more refined, less jagged and surprisingly subtle at times. Larry Lalonde's guitar isn't just for layering, or for blitzing out crazy atonal solos. Here he has more texture, and more freedom to create mood and swagger. Gone is the thumping of Tim "Herb" Alexander, replaced by the metronome snapping of Brian "Brain" Mantia. For me this is Primus at their very best - focused, tight and with more song structure. Amazing bass lines have never been missing from a Primus album, but Over The Falls surely must rival them all. That along with Shake Hands With Beef. Lalonde's high octave guitar squeel gives it added menace. The overall vibe though is cocktails and evil-jazz. Shake Hands With Beef, Bob's Party Time Lounge and Kalamazoo all tread new ground for Primus - song based and smooth, but all have a lurking mischief about them. Most controversial (for Primus fans anyway) is that Brain's drumming sounds so much better than Herbs ever did. It's cocky, punchy and ticks like a perfect clock. Overall, this record sounds better than any other Primus record - the recording and production is first class. It may be different for them, but it is pure class.

Although I appreciate their other albums more, this one is so listenable. It's almost a concept album, all the songs have a slight overdriven sound to them (bass, drums and guitar) Some tunes stand out more than others (Golden Boy, Shake Hands with Beef and Kalamazoo are my favourites). But overall I think this album rocks.
