'Thorniest'... interesting expression.
Sure, it has its fair bit of awkward songs but those are interspersed between 'catchy tunes' like Run Paint Run Run and that Vampire song of which I've forgotten the full name, amongst 2 or 3 others. If my granddaughter allows it I'll give it a spin when I get back home.
There's a big difference between kneeling down and bending over

Top two:

Strictly Personal
Safe as Milk

The rest all roughly take up the same space below these two. I will always have a copy of TMR and Decals even though I rarely can bring myself to listen to them. Unconditionally Guaranteed would be near the top of the rest as I really do like that album a lot.

Where Unconditionally Guaranteed' miserably failed this one did have some Commercial Potential. With Bat Chain Puller it's the only Beefheart album that still gets regular airtime home on the ranch.


I like it Erik but Ice Cream for Crow is better. They are fairly similar in style aren't they...?

I like Unconditionally Guaranteed it's miles better than Moonbeams
