This is an excellent recording. All but 2 songs include lyrics. This is a recording that is easy to listen to the whole way thru. Terry Bozzio's drumming is superb and the guitar couldn't get any better. The track "Rubber Shirt" takes a bass part that is extracted from a live performance in Sweden played in 4/4 time and transferred to the bass track of a slow song writen in 11/4. "All the sensitive, interesting interplay between the bass and drums never actually happened. The guitar solo section of the song "Yo' Mama" (also included on the disk) was done in the same way. All in all an excellent recording.
