Interesting to see all the difference of opinion.

I think the deal with Zappa is that he is a "maximalist" composer (opposite of a "minimalist") -- his music has a little bit of everything, and so probably nobody can possibly like everything he did.

Different listeners find very different vectors of enjoyment . . .


That's why I think Yellow Shark is a great place to start as it strips the melodies of all the Rock shtick - especially the drums. And if you can get into the music as un-rock that then it makes perfect sense when you go the regular records and hear similar music played on rock instruments.
