    Not quite on par with Claypool's catalog

    I'm enjoy most of the crazy compositions that Les Claypool put together. The bands have great musicians and a bizarre take on music. I enjoy the inventive originality. This album seemed like a great concept, but honestly not one of the versions here is more enjoyable than the originals. And rarely did I find it excellently creative. I listened to the whole album more than once... and that was enough.

    The fun kind of creepy

    If you've ever heard the Nightmare Revisited soundtrack, this will remind you of that one, but without the variety of artists. While I think some of the tracks could diverged more from the originals, it's a good way of putting the Primus stamp on a childhood memory. Definitely has a funhouse/circus at Halloween kind of vibe to it.

    this is a must for both primus and charlie and the chocolate movie lovers. it follows the old classic movie pretty close. all the songs including umpa loompa music. the candy man is an awsome remake. ya find yourself singing along to all the songs. very cheesy and fun, like all primus music.

    Primus brings the funk to Willy Wonka

    Les Claypool's funk bass is generally the star of Primus offerings, but it's Herb's drum kit -- made out of additions of household items -- that steals the show. This is not as accessible to casual fans as other efforts, but makes a different sort of diversion from standard pop music fare.

    This album is a reimagining of the old soundtrack from the original Willy Wonka movie. The song progression is the same sequence as that of the movie but Les Claypool and company put their own weird, eclectic and exciting spin on it. not to be missed. Check it out!

    Worst Primus I ever heard

    Did not sound like any of the Primus I've heard, did not like it at all-selling it back to a used CD shop for whatever they will give me for it.

    A whole new take on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Crazy and original interpretation that's definitely worth a listen.
