The sequel to "We're Only In It For The Money",
By A Customer
This review is from: You Are What You Is (Audio CD)
This album is a must for all Zappaphiles - here's why. It contains some marvellously scathing social commentary, doing for the 1980s what "We're Only In It For The Money" did for the 1960s; it was the first thing to come outta the UMRK and thus the production has that luxurious, mink-underwear plushness, betraying FZ's gleeful, button-pressing enthusiasm for all that new state of the art gear; it proves that there is more to FZ than mere smut - even in the naughtier songs (the reprise of "Doreen" during the second half of "Goblin Girl"... magical, and explains the, uh, 'moral of the story' - that one is just a more upfront, honest version of the other's hidden sentiment); it's fun and it rocks from start to finish... what more can I say?
Basically, if you like Frank Zappa you will love this record.
