5.0 out of 5 stars Godlike bassist doing what a godlike bassist should do, 15 Mar 2004
This review is from: Sailing The Seas Of Cheese (Audio CD)
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.
