Well, this is definitely one of my favorite Zappa titles. He immediately immerses the listener in his political ideas with "Hungry Freaks, Daddy". The guitar work here is nothing short of astounding. This album also contains what are probably the world's first recorded anti-love songs. Towards the end, Zappa comes out with some of his more orchestral, bizarre stuff. Truly amazing for a group's first recording. Everyone should own this album. Overall, I give 8 craps aboutFreak Out!.
