It begins with a really cool 40-second intro before "Death in Barstow" starts playing. The songs in the first side of the EP (Barstow, Lassie and Bumble Roach) are pretty much equal in terms of quality. "Flight of the Bumble Roach" is really special, though, because it features the scariest screams ever used in a Residents song.
However, everyone agrees that the main attraction of this EP is the B-side, "Walter Westinghouse", an 8-minute classic. The music is catchy, the lyrics are fun and strange, and the atmosphere is heavy but quiet at the same time. It's not as creepy as the other songs in this EP, but sure is a strange song, especially at the end, when two voices keep yelling "Eat exuding oinks upon and bleed decrepit bones and caustic spells of Hell!" My only problem with this song is that it really drags out in some parts. But that's a minor issue.
Overall, Babyfingers is one of The Residents' must-have releases, along with all of their 70's material. While it's no Third Reich 'n' Roll, it's still an amazing record, and the more I listen to it, the more I love it.
