Entertainment Weekly (12/17/93, p.36) - "...The first Mothers Of Invention album is equal parts send-up and homage, chewing through everything from doo-wop to fractured Stones and Animals riffs....FREAK OUT's jeering anarchy was astonishing back in '66...."Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 5 Stars - Indispensable - "The greatest debut album of them all, certainly the most ambitious in scope and attitude. Zappa has the Mothers blast through an hour of pachuco doo-wop, R&B, garage-punk, protest, bubblegum and free-form jazz..."Mojo (Publisher) (p.139) - "Pop as insurrection, rock as improvisation and music as satire make the LP a scabrous critique of its age."Uncut (magazine) (p.68) - "The first ever double album in rock history....A collection of dark, satirical rock music, acknowledged by Paul McCartney as a major influence on SGT PEPPER."35.30951

Rolling Stone (8/6/70, p.33) - "...Jean-Luc Ponty is a French gypsy violinist with an unusually fluid style that is full of wide leaps, unorthodox bowing techniques, and big surprises....a major musical mastermind..."Down Beat (12/93, p.46) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good Plus - "...[KING KONG is] the extraordinary 1969 album that helped establish Ponty as a versatile and progressive jazz violinist....the violinist twists and turns through straightahead and free jazz, 20th-century classical and rock stylings...."Musician (12/93, p.93) - "...Ponty's command of Frank Zappa's quirky polymetric arrangements on KING KONG have aged gracefully....[it] makes us long for the days when we believed a violinist had arrived who could blow modern jazz in tune, and with feeling...."29.77358

Option (9-10/95, p.108) - "This disc owes as much to hip-hop and funk as it does to techno, Negativland and Frank Zappa. All those influences and more are mixed into this complex dish..."Melody Maker (2/17/96, p.33) - Recommended - "...a dizzying collage of memorable snippets of music, a myriad of distorted voices and sheer arse-quaking hip hop/bass/fuzz/noise/punk....[EBN] are the best joke since Devo, but that's not to underestimate their music. Although the EBN idea is bigger than a pop record, content has not been abandoned in favour of style..."0.3988522

The Coop's original band was one of the greatest, and is criminally underrated..."Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.122) - "...What's most apparent is the debt of the band's so-so strut owed to The Who: 'No More Mr Nice Guy' and 'Generation Landslide' were virtually Townshend by numbers, and Alice's vocals owed a huge debt to Daltrey's hoary bark..."0.3489957
