3.0 out of 5 stars The Last Beefheart Album, 8 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Ice Cream for Crow (Audio CD)
Some fans love this one. Not me. By now, the Captain had almost given up singing (or roaring and bellowing, should I say) in favour of poetry recitations. I count six such on this album : things like "Hey Garland I Dig your Tweed Coat" and "Skeleton Makes Good" are not songs, they're dramatic readings. The music is harsh and challenging, as usual - it's a great version of the Magic Band. There are three standout tracks - the title, which jumps out of the speakers and bounds around the house like an escaped ape, as also does "The Past sure is Tense", and then "The 1010th Day of the Human Totem Pole" which horribly encapsulates the reasons why we can't get on with each other. But you may wish to leave this album until you've digested Safe as Milk, Strictly Personal, and, of course, Trout Mask Replica. In that order, if you value your psychological well-being.
