If you don't yet know Primus, this is an excellent introductory album. It worked for me. Initially my first few listens to '...Seas of Cheese' left me unimpressed as it is not an immediately accessible CD. I have heard some people class this as heavy metal. Heavy, in parts, it is. Metal it is not. There is melody in many of the tracks & I've never heard a heavy metal song about fishing (Fish On).This track manages to catch Lespool's (Bass, Vocals) passion for his favourite pastime, fishing. The intro. to this track will place you on a boat on the open water. Later, the bass mimics the thrill of the catch & then the despair of losing the fight...& I don't even fish. Perhaps the most accessible tracks are Tommy The Cat, Jerry Was A Race Car Driver & American Life. Some of the other tracks, often quite short, are surreal. Indeed, this is the theme of all the Primus albums. Throughout the album, you will be utterly impressed by Lespool's bass playing genius. At times it seems that an ordinary mortal would need 3 hands & 6 fingers per hand to achieve some of the astonishing series of notes & cords. This in conjunction with being very tight with the drums while accompanied perfectly by guitar. There are occasional overtones of foreign musical influence spattered throughout the tracks also (French at the start of Sgt. Baker & Native American Indian in Those Damned Blue Collar Tweakers, etc.). There are also thought provoking lyrics & all this adds up to a great mix of very listenable, alternative music. They even sample from the British Comedy Program, The Young Ones. In the end, it is worth the effort & I still hear more each time I listen. Recommended.
