I'm new here, been listening to Zappa for maybe a year or so. My first Zappa album was We're Only In It For The Money, my favourite is Freak Out! and my least favourite is Hot Rats, out of what I've heard. Also, I seem to be the only person in the world who likes Thing-Fish.

I heard the Unmoderated album that came out of this place a couple of years ago, and I want to say that I think it is really great.

One more thing: I'm on holiday in South Africa (where I was born) at the moment and the internet here sucks, but when I get home to Australia I'll have a much better connection. So I probably won't be coming on here much until the 7th of December.

Welcome to the forum from the guy who said ".....and remember, folks.....Newt happens when 61% of Americans don't vote" on the Unmoderated cd. What is the meaning of "sjmcd"?

I invite you to check out the album polls in the Zappa Albums section of the forum. You can read opinions on certain songs and albums. You're correct in assuming that you're in the minority that likes Thing-Fish, but you should find that there are still plenty of us that love the album. You are, however, in a distinct minority of fans that don't care for Hot Rats. Perhaps in time, it will click for you.

I think it's his initials. (S.J.McD.)

I know this because he's a member of the AppleSauce Records forum (where ImTheFloor came from, and where I've been hanging out lately).

Also, I'm the one that sent him a link to "The Unmoderated". There were plans to do an ASR version of it, but they haven't been talked about in a while.

Greetings and welcome aboard.

Thingfish is a fantastic album that I believe was ahead of it's time. Hot Rats is more accessable for the average music listener than Thingfish, being a little more challenging, but taking Zappa's entire catalog as a whole really shows his genious in diversity. The melding of so many styles that had his distinct trademark influence from Doo wop, blues, jazz, rock, fusion, classical, electronica, funk, freeform, experimental and even theatrical (like Thingfish) just to name a few, shows that theres something for all select tastes and eventually they all sink in.

Hey Steve! It's Nick from ASR! Glad to have you here.

As I've mentioned, I am also from the ASR forum where Steve and Floor came from.

Thing-Fish is enormously entertaining. Anyone who tells you different you let me know.........GC
