This review is from: Freak Out! (Audio CD)
No reviewer here seems to be referencing the new 2012 release. Most of the Zappa albums have undergone serious upgrading in the latest issue. Frank was fond of adding digital reverb to his cds around 1993 which drastically changed their sound and in some cases added didgital errors on the right hand side tracks.
Apparently this cd is OK but is the same as the old versions so if you have that then keep it
