Frankly, I have no clue where to start with Trout Mask Replica. Let’s put it this way: Frank Zappa produced it, so you know it’s gonna be weird. Some say Captain Beefheart was a paranoid schizophrenic who deprived the band of sleep. Some say they worked in a tiny room and barely ate. The album sounds like it came from an insane asylum. It sounds like it was crapped out carelessly, yet it’s so very intricately organized. I don’t even.
