As always, Les Claypool is GODLY with his bass riffs and insane Eddie Van Halen-esque tricks, and his cartoonish voice and weird lyrics make the whole thing just terrifically warped and downright scary.
Larry LaLonde's guitar work is the wackiest stuff ever heard in any of Primus's works, as seen in "Professor Nutbutter", "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver" and "Over the Electric Grapevine". The whole album is just filled with his amazing solos.
Herb's drumming is just perfect. Just perfect. There's some effin' great stuff in "Professor Nutbutter" (especially toward the end), "Year of the Parrot" and "Over the Electric Grapevine". His ridiculously creative fills and extreme beats contribute to my theory about Tim "Herb" Alexander being the almighty god of drumming. Neil Peart comes REALLY close, but I still like Herb better.
The music in this is, like I said before, the best so far. The well-known "Wynona's Big Brown Weaver" is catchy, intense, and has some really good lyrics. "Mrs. Blaileen" and "Glass Sandwich" are atmospherically creepy, and "Professor Nutbutter" makes me want to break stuff into other people's skulls, and run around in a serious panic attack. That's just me, though. "Southbound Pachyderm" is just beautiful. But it's not beautiful like a Beatles song is beautiful. It's beautiful in its own strange way.
Even the filler stuff is great - "De Anza Jig" is extremely catchy, "Hellbound 7 1/2" is cartoonish and wacky, and "On the Tweek Again" has a cool-sounding riff. "Space Farm", while it doesn't catch my attention very much, sounds extremely odd, what with all the animal sounds and stuff.
Many people do not agree with me on this, but I think this is the best Primus album ever. Hear it for yourself and you'll see what I mean... or maybe not. It's still worth a listen, though.
