    Overall, Frizzle Fry was the best. I also like Suck on This, Sailing the Oceans of Cheese, and Antipop. Everything else is just to strange for my tastes.
  3. i like sailing the SEAS ;) of cheese more than antipop.

    but those are the only 2 i've heard.

    I voted Sailing The Seas Of Cheese, but I like them all..
  6. Gosh this one is tough, I voted Frizzle Fry, but really I like Brown, Pork, and Sailing. I also liked the Rhinoplasty live versions of Tommy the Cat and Party time lounge.

    Maybe it's just passing whimsy but after really thinking about the songs I voted for Tales From the Punchbowl. I know that's perplexing to some but I just really enjoy that collection of songs and I've always felt it was an underrated album. Over the Electric Grapevine is awesome. The album is also, IMO, the more "prog-ish" of their catalog. Larry Lalonde's playing on this seems much improved and advanced over the albums leading up to it and of course it was good 'ole Herb's last album with Primus.

    Didn't choose Pork Soda for it's inconsistency, Seas of Cheese got beat because it's not as varied and epic as Tales (which some might understandably consider a good thing) and I didn't choose Frizzle Fry because I felt like they were just getting started and the group interplay and sheer skill on their instruments still had a ways to go. Tales featured a Primus that, in my mind, was miles ahead of the Suck on This/Frizzle Fry band. Now I must disclaim that I like all of their albums a lot (never been REAL fond of the Brown album but it's ok).

    I picked AntiPop as the most listenable cd. It's kinda funny that they named it AntiPop as it's the most poppy cd they've made.
  11. Wow, I can't believe I'm the first one to pick "Pork Soda" as their favorite. I love it's dark, moody feel and I like all the tapping that Les was into at the time. I don't think it's inconsistent at all.
