5.0 out of 5 stars You need this in your life, 22 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Lick My Decals Off Baby (Audio CD)
Well, if you like Beefheart you certainly do anyway. Lick My Decals Off, Baby is the follow-up to the more widely-acclaimed Trout Mask Replica and is, in my opinion, just as good, if not better. It is just as rhythmically unorthodox as Trout Mask in places (the title track, for instance) and it has just as many bizarre lyrics (Woe-Is-Uh-Me-Bop, say), albeit without the infamous spoken word segments (Fast n' bulbous! etc). It was originally released on Frank Zappa's Straight label, and due to some still-unresolved legal issues it is, at the time of writing, currently unavailable on cd (hence the astronomical prices it fetches). However, if you can find a way to obtain this album- I'm pretty sure it is available commercially on vinyl, if nothing else- than you absolutely must. While the Captain did of course make several other truly great LPs in his time- Safe As Milk, Trout Mask Replica, Clear Spot and Doc at the Radar Station all being genuinely worthy of five stars- this may well be his best.
