Why does everybody hate this album?

Seriously, I don't understand why this is considered one of The Residents' worst releases. Sure, it's not as good as the rest of the Mole Trilogy releases, but it still has its charm. It actually fits their style incredibly well, with its insane vocals and its scary atmosphere. Some of the songs are pretty badass as well, especially when the drums come in.

Of course, the actual tracks in the album are quite forgettable most of the time, like "Firefly" or "Fear for the Future", but overall, I still find it to be an interesting experience. "Sorry", "Kula Bocca Says So", "Cry for the Fire", "Vinegar" and the title track are the ones you should definitely listen to.

This album's main goal was to simulate an amateurish garage-rock band whose vocalist sings in some kind of forbidden language, and even though The Residents didn't sound anything like a garage-rock band at the time this album was made, you can still feel some structural similarities. There's good riffs, catchy vocal parts, and the songs vary on intensity. Sometimes everything is quiet, and then the instruments get louder, and then a threatening drum beat joins in, and it all works out in the end.

Overall, this album isn't really essential for a casual fan's collection. I guess you either love it or hate it. Most people seem to choose the latter, unfortunately.
