    Great Album

    I think this deserves a four star review, but I feel I had to compensate for the terribly uninformed 2-star review that precedes mine... Of course this album does not sound like Frizzle Fry. Why would they make an album that sounds like what they did 20 years ago? I think what Claypool meant was that the chemistry of the band is similar to that era, and I think it shows through. But regardless of what he or anybody else said, this album is not Frizzle Fry. Nothing after Frizzle Fry sounded like Frizzle Fry, get over it. If you want Frizzle Fry, listen to Frizzle Fry. If you want to hear cool new material, get this album. None of their albums are alike. Of course they all have similar Primus vibe, but each album has a distinct sound. This album is very different from previous releases, but there is that playfully dark sound reminiscent of the Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People EP and even Pork Soda (Jilly's on Smack reminds me very much of Bob) and other earlier releases. Keep in mind it has been around 10 years since their last full length release of new material. A lot of things change in 10 years. Les Claypool has always been the constant definitive element of the band, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't just adopt a completely different personality when he's doing a solo or side project. Claypool has always influenced the sound of Primus and always will, it wouldn't be Primus otherwise. I don't think there can be any confusing of this album with that of another band or even a Claypool solo release. This album IS Primus, and I find it hard to believe that this isn't quite obvious upon listening. Just sit back and enjoy, I can't say I love all the tracks but this is definitely an entertaining album worth getting, especially for a fan of Primus. And if you don't buy the album, at least do yourself a favor and go see them live. You will not be disappointed.

    Les, Ler and Jay bring the maple bacon

    First and foremost, Green Naugahyde is a really fun, entertaining and twisted album, much what a fan of Primus would expect. This is great news for anyone that was left with blue gotchas after the incredible Animals ep dropped from the heavens. The bad news? Yeah you know there had to be some, but this is Primus bad news, it’s not really bad news. Basically it isn’t Animals-level, and obviously not likening in sound to any of their earlier albums. If I had to label it, I’d say it is somewhere between Seas of Cheese depth and Purple Onion/Bucket of Bernie Brains. Before you blast me with treason, read on, give it a listen and I think you will agree somewhat. I’m proud to say Primus has been my favorite band since 1993, so I feel comfortable saying this. I’m obviously happy to hear something challenging from Les and Ler again. I don’t feel like I’ve gotten that since Purple Onion and Animals came out. Sure there have been fun songs and takeaways since then on different albums but this almost feels like a bridge that never was between Holy Mackeral and Purple Onion. I don’t feel any laziness, though the percussion does lack throughout most of the album, and Les is full of fun stories with Ler grinding away as always in a way on he and Todd Huth could. I miss Herb but I understand after seeing them tour for Zingers together that him exiting stage left again was inevitable. I was very happy to see the Fisherman’s Chronicles return and overall it’s a strong effort that with more plays will seep into my noggin just like Punchbowl and Brown Album did after a curious raised eyebrow was first raised. Give it an honest ear, if you like Les. I agree with a former comment that it doesn’t sound like Frizzle Fry, but Les was obviously talking about the gel and creative process of this album reminding him of that album. Frizzle Fry is bananas crazy with heavy banging throughout on the drums and bass, so this sounds nothing like that in my opinion, but again, it does have that wide range of ideas that Seas had and the feel of Purple Onion to me. I was curious if it would have a Sausage feel to it, but I honestly didn’t catch that either, and I’m fine with that since that was years ago and based on years before. If you like Les you should love this if not now then tomorrow. This and that, this and that, this and that -Girolahozz

    I'll be honest, going into this album I had really high hopes. The Idea that it was reminiscent of Frizzle fry got me really excited. Though the CD turn out nothing like FF in my opinion, its not a big deal. Think about it, why are you going to make something that sounds the same as your old material? Im actually more pleased to proclaim that this CD is once again a unique Primus album. They are all unique with slight undertones of previous albums. I''l be the first to admit that its definitely not my favorite piece of work they've created, but it still stands strong up against the others. Its a great listen. Another thing I appreciated was that unlike most music these days the songs were not over produced. Its very raw and sounds like the guys are having fun together once again. If you are a huge fan of Primus and Claypool you will not be disappointed I promise. PUT THIS IN YOUR COLLECTION MY FRIENDS!

    Frizzle Fry, It Is Not

    "According to Les Claypool, the album's sound is reminiscent of their seminal album Frizzle Fry, an idea that will surely please fans of Primus' early experiments." Les must have been listening to another Frizzle Fry, or he thinks Frizzle Fry was one of his latest solo abortions. Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Primus/Claypool fan, but this CD can't hold a candle to Frizzle Fry and sounds much more like his recent solo material, based on the short clips available here. To quote Primus, "a flame that burns twice as bright burns only half as long." Perhaps Primus' flame has gone out. Their last good album was Tales from the Punchbowl. I guess at least there is a new album, not like the last time one was hinted at, and instead what was released was a "greatest hits" CD.

    This is an okay album, but it does not live up to the usual Primus stander for me.
