Its a toughie but i'll plump for Blessed Relief.

Wow, its been a long time since i've posted on ZappaForums... I like the interior decor spectrum to the right here... I like the pleasing font on the buttons too... its all making me feel kinda funny... like when I used to climb the rope in gym class.

Every song on this album is fantastic, but I'm going with blessed relief because it's such a great way to finish this brilliant album.

Blessed Relief would probably be a top 10 Zappa song for me. It's so gorgeous, I love that opening and closing theme and the first solo is absolute perfection, so beautiful!

I'll vote for the title track... though Blessed is a very close second.

Touch choice (as I love 'em all) but plumped for the title track as it just sounds so epic with all that stunning brass and some amazing guitar work from FZ.
Definitely one of my favourite albums.

For Calvin is the most interesting piece for my ears. Fantastic music and analog recording.

Uh, it was a long time ago when I answered this poll, I had only heard like 10 Zappa albums, and this was my favourite. I chose Blessed Relief, but I could have chosen any of them.

This is easily in my top 5 Zappa albums. I'm on my third pass today trying to pick. I can't choose between "The Grand Wazoo", "Eat That Question", or "Blessed Relief". So, I can't vote here.

Oh man, to tough to choose. From the opening bars of For Calvin, which still give me goose bumps, to Blessed Relief and everything inbetween, just so good, but I can't pick a favourite. Great great album.

10 G's on the GG Scale
