An often underrated Zappa album, Ship Arriving continues his musical journey in similar style to the one we experience on eg. "Joe's Garage". This time, however, without the concept element. No Not Now features some hilarious falsetto vocals courtesy of several of the male band members. It goes directly into Valley Girl, an extremely funny satire featuring Zappa's daughter Moon doing a dialogue as well as an incredible funky bassline. I Come from Nowhere is an absurd journey into the land of the ever-smiling people, probably the least tuneful track of the album. The 12-minute title track is a varied piece of music in the style of the instrumentals on "Joe's Garage". It features some impossible xylophone parts by Ed Mann. Envelopes is an instrumental connected to the previous track. The last track, Teen-Age Prostitute, is a seemingly objective description of the street life in America at that time. Recommended.

This product is fantastic, Amazon seems to be the only place i can easily find Frank Zappa's albums. The album is fantastic with some of his most famous songs on there. The price was reasonable compared to other retailers and websites. I really liked this product because i really enjoy Frank Zappa's music and also i couldn't find this album anywhere besides Amazon which was great! I would definitely recommend buying this product for yourself or as a gift as it is great for any Zappa lover.

A bit of a historical curiosity,as "Valley Girl",co-written with his daughter Moon, was the closest FZ ever got to a hit single.
It's (mostly) studio,but it seems all the guitar parrts were recorded live,so-called xenochrony.Highlights are "I come from Nowhere",the title track and "Teenage Prostitute". They last of these may be seen as FZ's amateur anthropology-he's just telling what he sees.
"Valley Girl" made Moon Zappa enough money to buy a house,and FZ enough money to hire the LSO in 1984 for "LSO Vols.1 and 2".It's fun,but very much of it's time.The only people who can make sense of Moon's lyrics are American women of a certain age who were teenagers in the early 1980s.
Good stuff all round.

It is a very early example of Moon zappa following in the family business.She may have been in her teens but even here she shows natural talent.Also Zappa shows his natural ability at social problems e.g. The last track Teenage Prostitute.Execelent example of Zappa being a workoholic.
