Another piece of sheer genius, originality, and breathtaking compositional skill. Zappa expands and condenses melodies and rhythms into multilayered time signatures to create that endless intrigue of never being able to fathom his music. But this is a piece about the end times, a preparation for his departure, and a preparation for the ending of civilisation as he saw and portrayed it in Civilisation Phase III - his final disillusionment and pain with the human race, his only salvation in music, at last being faithfully transcribed and expressed in the synclavier. Never one for slush, this is an incredibly moving, challenging, mind bending, spirit soaring collection with the famous G-Spot Tornado and lush St Etienne thrown in for contrasts from the Master Composer. "Music is the best".
