If the Residents' rather daunting catalogue is unknown to you, then I heartily recommend this album. It summarises all the major aspects of their work in a handy package, although this is as much by accident as by design; the album was transitional for the group and covered many of the bases they would later return to. Their musical and sonic invention is near baffling to the newcomer, but a listen or two sees the strangeness wear off and a world populated odd characters, disillusioned gods and deceased cattle, along with a sonic history of the birth of humanity is brought to eeriely vivid life. A superb album by a legendary band.
