So is zoot / WOIFTM / and absolutely free - i.e. the first albums I got as a teenager.
BUT they'll all get played for zappadan.

Zoot Allures is pretty overrated. I understand you about WOIIFTM, but don't agree. Absolutely Free? One of the most underrated, it is on the same level as Money or higher IMO. It has the Vegetable Suite and Brown Shoes Don't Make It.

I don't think Zoot Allures is overrated, but maybe this is because it was one of the few albums to get a bad review in the book Viva Zappa that I read before I heard most of his records. (I like the record, although I don't think it would make my Zappa top 10.)

Don't get me wrong - I'm not overrating or underrating any of these ones - I love them all - but I rarely play them. When I do I really enjoy them.

How can an album including Black Napkins, The Torture & Zoot Allures be overrated ? Even the "stupid" songs like Ms Pinky & Disco Boy are great. I like it :!:

How can you overrate any of Frank's albums ??

Because Zappa was so versatile in his writing , he appealed to all people , just at different times , with different bands and different tunes.

Name another artist you could say that about. :lol:

I don't know one person that doesn't like at least one FZ tune , but I'm a lucky guy , too. :wink:

I think Don't Eat The Yellow Snow is overrated.

I agree this topic is stupid, but it's very fun!

Btw, I never liked so much King Kong the way it's played on MAJNH. Not saying it's overrated
