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.

This is my favourite Primus Album. It feels strong from beginnning to end, with both pyscodelic freaky melodies and heavy groove hooks throughout.

Id recommend this album to anyone who is new to Primus, as it contains some familiar fan favourites ("tommy the cat", "jerry was a race car driver", "here come the bastards"). I would have happily bought this album purely for Tommy the cat... 'SAY BABY DO YOU WANNA LAY DOWN WITH ME, SAY BABY DO YOU WANNA LAY DOWN BY MY SIDE, SAY BABY DO YOU WANA LAY DOWN WITH ME, SAY BABY..... SAY BABY!!!'

A really solid primus album, and good value too!

When i first heard Primus album i thought that Flea was the greatest bassist of all time. 30 seconds later my mind was changed. Being a bassist myself I dont understand how Les Claypool manages to play so well and fluently and be able to sing at the same time. Unlike most bands where you can bearly hear the bass here the bass is dominant with a frenzy of slap/pops, hammers, strums and other bass techniques used perfectly. Les's voice is great on this album although he bearly sings in tune his high pitched yells and strange voices create a fantastic effect that moulds into the music perfectly. Larry and Herb work very well with Les but their talents on this album are not nearly as great as Claypools yet produce a perfect sound to mould them toghther. Also Les and Larry play completely differnt parts as Les plays the main riffs and Larry makes backing sounds. The Politically inspired lyrics are also fantastic and they are able to take serious issues in American life and create a great song around them so that people will be informed about them. "Fish On" has the greatest bass intro that I have ever heard and this will take the listener to a boat on a lake. The best songs on this album are"American life" "Tommy cat" and "Is it luck?" Overall this a completly original and imaginative album from one of todays best bands and is a vital part to any bassists collection.

Claypool and co. return with another brilliant bass-filled album. My only complaint is that there could be more songs up to the standard of ones such as Sgt. Baker, Tommy The Cat, and Jerry Was A Racecar Driver.

A cheese platter which reeks of stinky genius and dribbles with mouldy joy. Not since Gong's Camembert Electrique has such fabulous fromagerie been committed to vinyl! Inhale and savour the flavour.

I have to admit I was astonished and delighted when I found out this album was being given a 5.1 Blu-ray release. As these are often saved for the most popular albums it's rare to see such an odd album get the treatment and I'm happy to say it's a delight.

The 5.1 Mix isn't too gimmicky and makes nice use of all the speakers, as befits a Primus album the bass is nicely rounded and heavy and you can really hear all the instruments with greater clarity even over the new stereo mix. Whilst primarily an audio disc there are some interesting strange visuals with a mix of old video, cartoons and claymation with visualizer effects laid over the top. I found it best not staring at them as combined with the music it made me feel slightly queasy.

If you've got a 5.1 speaker setup and you're a Primus fan this is well worth the money, especially since it might encourage more Primus albums to get this treatment.
