This comes off as a poor man's version of Frank Zappa's Lumpy Gravy with the spoken parts focusing more on sex and drugs. It sounds like someone hid a tape recorder in the room and the conversations are humorous if your sense of humor runs along the lines of Howard Stern or even Zappa's more puerile moments. The music is mostly guitar stuff that sounds like a home multitrack recording. It is melodic and there are some good harmonized overdubs on a couple of tracks but it would sound better with drums and bass and Goats and Ponies has an annoying click track that stops halfway through it. The "classical" is clearly MIDI and isn't bad albeit corny in a nice way given the apparent intention of the album. I think it's safe to say that the composer doesn't have a master's in music and any conservatory freshman would sleep soundly after listening to this. I was going to give this no more than 3 stars but I'm giving an extra star just for having the balls to dare put something like this out.
