How do you classify Primus' sound? Well it's hard to explain, but it's a mix of funk and metal. That's right. Funk and metal. How is this possible, you say? I don't know, but they really pull it off in this album. There's some pretty fucked up shit in here, with Les Claypool's unorthodox style of bass playing, and a track that plays in an 11-beat measure. Now that's some fucked up shit, my friend. The guitarist and drummer really help to add to the auditory chaos. I'm not going to recommend any tracks to you, because the first time you hear this album, you're going to either love it or hate it. But give it try, and see if Primus is for you or not.
