The Definitive Primus Album


This is the defining album for Primus in my opinion. I love all their albums, but this one is my absolute favorite. It deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as other albums that defined great bands like "Dark Side of The Moon" or "2112" or "Dirt". If you have heard one Primus song and liked it, get this! It doesn't suck.

17 years and counting


I waited in the Amish-rain for the music store to open in a shitty Pennsylvania town to get this CD when it came out. I still have the CD with the ticket for the show in it - Good times, good times. Primus turned music inside out and made an aware honky out of me. I hope before I die to see these three masters together one more time. This album is one of the greatest of all time!

These guy's have to be the most original band out there today. Seriously, there is'nt one band that even comes close. In these times of ours you see and hear so many mediocre artists that sound alike. It's very refreshing when something unique comes along that has talent.What more can I say but Awesome dude!!!!!!!! Give them a listen and you'll thank me.

Greatest Band Ever (period)


Ah Primus, what can you really say about a band that sounds like no other musical act out there. In my mind Primus is the greatest band to ever be; funky/bluesy/epic/disturbing basslines, punk/funk/thrash/demented guitar licks, and tribal/metal/funk beats, and annoying nasal punk vocals. This album is pure audio sodomy. To me this is Primus' best album. If you are into REAL eclectic rock CHECK THIS OUT. P.S. Also buy every other album by these guys, it's great, great music.

Can't have enough puppies


"Too many puppies" is my all-time favourite Primus album, the rest of the songs I find are a bit sameish. "Mr Knowitall" and "Pudding Time" are pretty good. Still it's great that Primus is here on eMusic, would love to see some more.

They Say All Music Guide

Primus’ first studio album wouldn’t necessarily be a surprise to anyone familiar with their Suck on This days, not least because a good chunk of that album ended up being represented here. Not that this was surprising, but what was pleasant was how well and easily the at-once frenetic and extremely precise way the trio had around its spastic rhythms, translated into a great effort away from the stage. Certainly the fact that Les Claypool had once tried out for Metallica was clear enough with the doomy metal opening of “To Defy the Laws of Tradition,” but once Claypool started singing about brides choosing colors other than white for marriages, the band’s own world came to the fore. It’s pretty easy to see in retrospect how much of a melange went into the group’s work. Nods but thankfully few outright steals to everything from Frank Zappa’s arch humor and Funkadelic’s sprawl to the Police’s early, spare effectiveness crop up and, indeed, so does plenty of Metallica (the title track’s extreme climax in particular). But whether it’s due to Claypool’s reedy, whacked-out voice or the fact that just about every song seems like it could be a soundtrack to a moshpit gone wild, something about Frizzle Fry is ultimately and perfectly of its time and place. The tightly wired and wound lope of “John the Fisherman” probably remains the most concentrated blast of them all, but nods should also go to the grinding march/stomp “Too Many Puppies,” with its wry and worried vision of an overcrowded future, and the equally slow death crunch of “The Toys Go Winding Down.” Then there’s the already established live fave “Pudding Time,” which is one of the goofiest anti-celebrations of consumer culture around; and all the better for it. – Ned Raggett
