I don't know if i got lucky or they recently did another run of these but my copy sounds fantastic. It's mixed differently to the CD but i like this mix just as much

Does this actually exist, or is this entry a mistake? I'd be surprised if this was the one album they didn't put on vinyl in the US right from the release date, but I'd also be surprised if not one of these has turned up for sale since January 2015...

Not these guys again...

There was a time in my youth when I'd have loved the quirkiness of a band like Primus. With their obscure sense of humour and their blend of rock and funk, there's truly no other band like them. But what makes them so unique is also what pretty much puts so many people off of them.

And to put it bluntly, it's mostly boring self-indulgence.

While the musicians themselves are all incredibly talented, and certainly adept at thinking outside the box, the music itself is very hard to follow, and definitely requires the listener to be equally open-minded. There's very little singing, with vocalist Les Claypool preferring more of a spoken-word type of vocal style, and a lot of the music itself tends to plod along with no real melodies sticking out. As a whole, it's just a complete mess.

If I had to pick out some highlights, it'd have to be 'Tommy the Cat' and 'Jerry Was a Race Car Driver', most probably because these are the notable singles from the album, and while they do have some infectious grooves in the music, as per usual with this band, the spoken babble that is the lyrics kind of ruins them.

I'm sure there was a time when I loved this band, especially as I seem to recall asking for some of their albums as Christmas and Birthday presents in my early twenties. But I listen to 'Sailing the Seas of Cheese' now and it bores the life out of me. Primus really are in a league all of their own when it comes to "keeping an open mind", sadly, it's just not a very good one.

I've listened to the CD version only, until I bought this remaster. The CD is clear and vocals stand out in the mix. The vocals are lost in the mix on the vinyl remaster. The CD lacks warmth. The vinyl does warm up, but what can you expect from a digital record. The vinyl sounds better cranked up than the CD. If you could synchronize the record and the CD, and play them at the same time, you would have a great mix. I wasn't pleased with this record, but I do play it a lot. I guess it's growing on me..

I'm pretty happy with the sound on this. It's not a masterful recording to begin with. Decent, but originally pretty low-budget. I think this mix does it justice. Bass and drums are pretty tight. I don't have an issue with the vocals as some here have. The vinyl is nice and quiet. Given the price, this one's a pretty good value.

Quintessential 90s alternative music. Rarely does a band release such a powerful exhibition of talent in back to back releases, but this was an outstanding follow up to frizzle fry. This album is truly epic in its entirety...aside from sucking so badly, of course.

This "new stereo mix" is not for me. I've been listening to this album since it came out on cassette and CD and the original mix is so much clearer. The new mix seems to have a lot more hard panning and the vocals seem to get drowned a lot and have more effects on them. Everyone hates Plain Records vinyl reissues but I think that pressing sounds way better than this. This remix is going straight to the sell pile.

This version sounds huge. Bass and drums are punchy, as they should be. Also, it's very, very cheap on Amazon.
