Q (8/95, pp.150-151) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "A pair of side-long 'underground oratorios' crystallising Zappa's life themes--the corruptions of materialism, the vacuity of modern culture, the value of vegetables--and his technique, montaging ham-fisted mock opera with puerile bubblegum and a jazz-rock that writhes with exhilaration..."Down Beat - 3 Stars - GoodOption - Recommended70.38229
