For a person with indiscriminate tastes.

Ah who am I kidding, I don't care for any of the synclavier stuff.

That's alright, Cal. You are so nice that everyone forgives you for having atrocious taste in music.

I don't forgive him.
I don't need to forgive him.
I don't care for the synclavier stuff, either.
I have all the albums, but find most of it boring.
I rather like the sound of the rain and gunshots on Civ. III, though!

Awesome album. The only track I don't enjoy is the title one. Hope to get this on vinyl at some point.

I really like The Ensemble Modern's take on some of those songs too.

Zappa's Universe's version of Night School is awesome. It'll give you a better appreciation of it.

Well, a post could be read in more than one ways. It doesn't have to be "Jazz from Hell tracks by Ensemble Modern: G-Spot Tornado makes the show, as does Dog Breath". It could also be: "G-Spot Tornado (from JFH) makes the show. Another highlight on The Yellow Shark is Dog Breath".
