There is also one guitar solo on the CD, I'm a big fan of Electric Guitar solos and in my opinion this is the best Guitar solo by anyone, anywhere. The guitar solo is full to the brim of Fantastic and Beautiful melodic lines, the inspiration just does not stop for Zappa in this solo.
The Jazz may be from hell but this guitar solo is obviously made in heaven.
If you only like the comedy/rock side of Zappa this album may not be your cup of tea, but for anyone interested in higly unusual, original musical brilliance they should check this one out.
Other albums by Zappa with Synclavier music are "the Perfect Stranger - Boulez conducts Zappa, "the Mothers of Prevention" and "Civilisation Phase III", all excellent. And you might want to check out another genius with a Music Machine, the American composer Conlon Nancarrow his Player Piano Studies, are mind boggling in their Polyrhythmic complexity his studies Influenced both Zappa and Ligeti.
Really interesting music, and Highly Recomended. And as Zappa said - MUSIC IS THE BEST.
What did you think of this review?
Having gotten his hands on a Synclavier for the first time, FZ was finally able to compose any damn thing he pleased without having to worry about whether human players would be able to handle it. Along with fiendishly complicated pieces like "While You Were Art II" and the title track, the result was also some fun-and-frantic moments like "Night School" and "G-Spot Tornado." For anti-electronic purists there's also "St. Etienne," a majestic guitar piece recorded live in 1984.
