Format: Audio CD
For me, 'One Size Fits All' is Zappa's masterpiece and one of the great rock albums. Zappa's tight, complex arrangements were combined with exciting high-energy rock rhythms and played by a classic edition of The Mothers which included versatile musicians such as Ruth Underwood, George Duke and Napoleon Murphy Brock.

'One Size Fits All' is a record of tremendous vitality and musical intelligence. All of Zappa's diverse influences are evident on this magnificent, multi-layered, sumptuously recorded album which reveals new delights with every hearing.
Anyone who wants to know what Zappa was all about could do no better than start listening here.

Many would say that the band on One Size Fits All was the best reincarnation of FZ and the Mothers - and that includes Frank himself. Napoleon's voice, George's keyboards, Ruth's percussion, Chester's fantastic drums, Tom's bass, the best of FZ's solos, and some excellent cameos from Johnny Guitar and Capatin Beefheart (not named on the album for contractual reasons). I'd been listening to Zappa since the start, enjoyed them more with Hot Rats, Grand Wazoo and Waka Jawaka, but when I heard this album I was hooked. I immediately went back and got Roxy and Elsewhere, which is a great representation of what this band was like live. But the composition, silly lyrics and the playing on this are the best of any FZ album. So many ideas and styles on one record or in one song like Andy or Inca Roads. Florentine Pogen is my favourite. Don't hesitate, you need this in your collection.

... this would be it.
Fairly accessible for the new listener. If you are just slightly open-minded about your music it should, by rights, blow you away.
And for the seasoned Zappa expert (ahem... like me), it is one of the most regularly aired recordings in my collection.
In one word: brilliant

5 BILLION STARS to THE POWER OF 5 BILLION STARS!!!!!

Verily, I say unto you, this album is a miracle! This one's in my top 3 of best albums ever made! This is an album of rock/bluegrass/prog/fusion/punk/world-music/space-rock/pop/classical/torch-song/heavy metal/EVERY-ROCK and not served up piece-meal a la White Album and every other band would try, but all at the same time! A dense, yet crystal-clear creation of such power! such melodiousness! such intelligence! such humour! - No wonder Zappa couldn't stand the religious and dogma wielding zealouts of all gang members who declare themselves: "I'm White I'm Black! I'm prog! I'm garage! I'm Christian! I'm Muslim! I'm American Idol material! I'm satanic Heavy Metal Shredding! I'm this! I'm that: endless opposition creating endless trouble!" If God composed an album of music it would be this! And if you don't like Zappa because of his profanity/schatology and his penchant for themes anal, there is none of that there - excepting the fact that "Andy Devine, had a thong rhind". This album is so amazing, so beautiful, (it's making me write like a madman in a feeble attempt to tell people of its greatness.) I've got thousands of albums, but if somebody said "it's all those or One Size Fits All! Which do you give up, so that, perhaps, we'll let you live?" I'd say, take all the others, and leave me "One Size Fits All". Thank you Mr Zappa! The day that you died, my life has been a bit more of a drudgery since, and the world has certainly become "dumb all over, and" very "ugly on the side." This album should be required listening at all schools the world over and students should be tested on its contents - only then we might be able to save the world and its Art!

Frank Zappa was not an easy man to pigeonhole, so I won't. Here is another collection of tunes that are vehicles for Franks ongoing attack on things he considered stupid and pointless - dental floss, small town mentality, the govt, Poodles, all set to the most amazing music that was around at the time, not forgetting his incredible guitar playing.

Talking of guitar playing, the solo set in the middle of Inca Roads, which was taken from a live performance of Inca Roads in Helsinki in 1974(Zappa often road tested songs before committing them to tape in the studio)and edited into this studio version, is worth the price of admission alone. It is stunning.

The 2012 remasters sound fabulous, especially the analogue sourced ones, and this is no exception. The sound is full, clear and not compressed to the teeth, as a lot of remasters are these days. The mixes etc.. are as per the original vinyl release and are shorn of all of the icky digital reverb and strange edits that the Ryko cd versions have dotted through them.

I have to agree with the other reviews on this page - if I could only have one Zappa album, this would be it. One Size Fits All regularly tops polls in Zappa fanzines, and you'll know why when you hear it. Some of Zappa's most beautiful guitar playing can be heard here (especially on the amazing "Inca Roads"), as well as the dazzling skills of Ruth Underwood on percussion and George Duke on keyboards. The two versions of "Sofa" are also crucial reference points in Zappa's work - one has lyrics in German and English; the other is instrumental. Both are gorgeous. There's not really much more to be said - if you don't like this album you probably don't like music.
