Prone to pretension, these two English Frank Zappa
s revel in outright silliness on much of this album, which was also released as Snack Attack
. The mix puts their voices higher than usual, highlighting some truly bent tales of munchy madness, desert skullduggery, and JFK assassins. For contrast, there's the gorgeous "Wedding Bells," a rare AM hit for the former 10cc
mates. Throughout all of this, you get the nagging feeling this pair was capable of so much more.
