Customer Review

on 16 December 2009
It's not clear what condition Captain Beefheart was in when he recorded 'The Spotlight Kid', but judging from the vocal performances on most of the tracks, none too clever. It's got a couple of really good tracks on it, but quite a lot is rather dirge-like. In sharp contrast 'Clear Spot' has to be one of his best, no, the best albums ever. There's everything from driving blues to wistful love songs, all in Capt Beefheart's inimitable (and this word is used correctly here) style. Hence the title of this review and the star count; about 2 stars for Spotlight but 5 for Clear spot.
For more balanced genius, Shiny Beast or Safe as Milk might be better bets...
