Ah, Pork Soda. Primus, in many fan's opinions, at the apex of their considerable genius.
This is a much darker album than previous Primus efforts. This does not however, mean that Primus have simply become heaver and self-absorbed. Spectacularly sinister tones, lyrics and a feeling that this music is coming at you from the dark are all traits that are both refreshing and relevant to the Primus sound. This is such an experimental, and consequently developed and accomplished, album because it was recorded in Rancho Relaxo, Les' home studio. Primus, for the first time, could record without limitations.
Les Claypool's quirky, dominant basslines mark the first album on which Les has truly come to terms with his 6-string. Little can be said to truly describe how diverse and emotive his playing on this album is. His singing, too, is at times jovial, and at others haunting. The lyrics are sinister and the characters Les describes are rich and bizarrely fitting. All Les' techniques are present and used to genius effect, as well as some brilliant flirtations with the Electric Upright bass.
This marks the first album on which Ler could finally step out of Todd Huth's shadow, Huth having written many of the guitar lines on Suck On This, Frizzle Fry and Seas of Cheese. Ler does not dissapoint. Bizarre, convulsing and unique guitar rhythms and (never pointless) solos accompony and even slightly provoke Les' usually very commanding aural presence. No other guitarist could have fitted better into this album than Larry Lalonde, as DMV and Mr. Krinkle undeniably confirm. Herb too, impresses with his refined and minimal approach to drums. His playing adds tremendously to the ambience of the tracks, and Wounded Knee is sublime.
Overall, an album of extremes.

This album is fantastic, this was the first Primus album I ever heard, it encouraged me to buy every other primus and Les Claypool inspired album. The band are at there very best with Bass Slappin looney Claypool given licence to roam and roam he does, and Tim Herb hitting the drums with true precision, Lalonde does his usual job and keeps everything interesting with his mad guitar licks. Every song is a classic from "My name is mud" with its deep flappy bass line, to "the air is getting slippery" with its mad banjo playing. difficult album to difine is it Rock? is it country? is it mad? oh god yes.
well worth a purchase for all budding bass guitarists. Primus Sucks?... I think not.

If you're new to Primus I wouldn't start with this album. You need to warm up first, I'd recommend the Brown album or Frizzle Fry or even Sailing The Seas of Cheese as there a bit more accessible than Pork Soda although if you struggle with heavier music give Frizzle Fry a miss.

This is a brilliant album but it takes time to realize how good it is. The first time I listened to this album I struggled, I couldn't quite figure it out, I found the atmospherics unsettling an too weird. After listening to there other albums many times paying attention to the darkly humorous, satirical lyrics which I think is key to understanding an deciphering Primus and there musical approach. But now along with Sailing The Seas and Frizzle Fry I would say it's as good as those albums in its own way just way more experimental and out there. The musicianship on this album is Mind blowing. It takes serious talent to match Les Claypool and keep up with his virtuosic Bass playing but guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim Alexander do exactly that by complimenting and adding texture to the songs. I like Brain Mantia and Jay Lane as drummers and Jay Lane may of been there from the start but Tim Alexander to me is the quintessential Primus drummer, a genius he can play both complex and simple rhythms an he makes it look so effortless. Lalondes guitar playing is as unusual and unique as Les Claypool's bass playing in many respects even though he's happy playing in the background most of the time he still has many shining moments on this album. I can't single out one song as better than another, the album is best experienced as a whole. These guy's have great chemistry on all the albums they've played together, I love all their albums an ep's with the exception of Anti-pop, which is the complete opposite of Pork Soda, Anti-pop is Primus watered down lacking the fire, energy and audacity of a Pork Soda.

Bizzarely this is Primus' most successful album. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic record, but it's so weird, dark and uncommercial even by Primus standards. The MTV hit My Name Is Mud is a story of a murderer featuring Les Claypool tapping the same note over and over again on the neck of his bass. DMV is a song about how horrible visits to the DMV (the US equivalent of the MOT office) are with a crazy bassline reminiscent of Jerry Was A Race Car Driver. And Hamburger Train is basically an 8 minute long bass solo. Although it's a bit more meandering than usual due to there being many more 'incidental' tracks than the previous studio albums, it's a classic and surely one of the strangest LPs to chart in the Billboard top 10.

Creepy creepy album. Definitely the one album that semineted Primus' style of silly sinister. Particulaly the songs 'My name is mud and 'Mr krinkle' will give you nightmares that Mud and Krinkle are hiding under your bed waiting for you. Really Really cool album.
