I'm disgusted at myself for not having got this album sooner, I've been a fan of primus for years and this is the album that contains most of my favourite tracks from dancing like a silly b*gger at rock clubs in the mid nineties. Too many puppies, John the Fisherman, To defy the laws of tradition are stand out tracks but this album is consistently good. if you like any of the primus you've heard, it'll probably be on this album.
This should be the first purchase of anyone into primus as it is probably the only album which you can listen through in one sitting even if you are not over-familiar with all the tracks. The other albums (like Sailing in the seas of cheese) contain some very phunky tracks (like Jerry was a race car driver or Tommy the cat) but also contain a lot of filler stuff which is not as worth a listen and can be a bit off-putting...
If you've never heard primus and you're into anything like the chilli peppers or mr bungle, buy this, the bass playing is awe-inspiring but the guitar, drum work and singing are spot on too. The best funky, funny, bass-orientated, rock album there is
