By the way... for those who haven't caught on yet, The Daily Vault has been running a retrospectiove on FZ all month, featuring him as our September Artist of the Month.  He's one of the favorite artists of the DV's founder Christopher Thelen, who decided a great way to bow out as an active member of the review panel would be to try to review every non-bootleg Zappa release ever -- approx. 90 albums --in 30 days.  A fittingly Zappa-esque gesture if you ask us. <br><br>In any case, you can check it all out at: <br><br>http://www.dailyvault.com <br><br>Enjoy! <br><br><br>Jason Warburg <br>Editor<br>The Daily Vault <br><br>

sorry, I think Chris Thalen sucks as a reviewer.  tho most of the facts are not incorrect, the analysis disregards artistic intent or even an attempt at understanding original context of releases.  and consequently insists on maintaining the all-too-narrow perspective of the hubristic subjective-view-packed-on-self-important-ignorance view that sells drugs to your children and takes substance from their souls . . . which is not an endorsement  ;)<br>sure everyone has an opinion [insert proverb about opinions and assholes here], but if it sucks that bad, why poke it in front of the camera on the int'l web?<br>because you can?  that makes you look even worse.  Ignorance is no excuse for something he pretends to love.
