This album does mark the transition between The Residents' early recordings and their future projects. The music in Fingerprince is weird, but not in the same way as Meet The Residents or The Third Reich 'N' Roll. Fingerprince is weird in a creepy, menacing way. If Fingerprince was a person, he would be the creepy dude who sits in the corner and doesn't say a word about anything, but he's one hell of a dancer.

"You Yesyesyes" is one of my favorite tracks, and it does make me want to dance around like a complete dork. The guitar and trumpet riffs are the best aspects of the song. My only complaint about this album is that the sound is a bit poorly mixed, but I think it adds to the amateurish aspect of the album. "Boo Who?" is another great track, by the way. The side-long suite, "Six Things to a Cycle", is a percussion number about how man, represented by a primitive humanoid, is consumed by his self-created environment only to be replaced by a new creature, still primitive, still faulty, but destined to rule the world just as poorly. Some releases divided into six parts for the convenience of the listener, and I'd say Parts 5 and 6 are among my favorite pieces of music ever.

The CD release of Fingerprince included most of the Babyfingers EP, which was originally composed to be a third side for Fingerprince anyway. Fingerprince was supposed to be the world's first three-sided album, but Monty Python beat them by a few years. Fingerprince is often considered the weakest album of The Residents' classic era, and I won't disagree with that. It's, indeed, the weakest album, but that doesn't mean it's a bad album. I totally recommend it, but it doesn't really make for a good first impression. I'd recommend it for more experienced listeners.
