CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & His Magic Band "Trout Mask Replica" - 1969

This is no easy-listening. One could easily sum up this album to a magma of spoken-words over a dissonant cacophious breaks and fall starts.

Sure, there's hardly any "song" in here, but think about "Trout Mask Replica" as absolute freedom of speach : consider music as you know it, and consider this 28-song album as a global evolution for the music and the way to experience it.

Captain Beefheart and his companions assemble, destroy, reshape and grind all of the music canons, coming up with this astonishing groundbreaking masterpiece.

True experimentalism, "Trout Mask Replica" is intricated, violent, twirling, fascinating, abstract, pointless and disconcerting at the same time.

There's a lot of reissues for this one, always prefer the original Straight double LP (look for the Straight logo in the front top right corner) with the company inner sleeves.
