How are people giving this 1* reviews?
This may not be Franks most popular works, nor one of his absolute best but it is a unique album for the synclavier! G-spot tornado is a fantastic track along with the others. Sure, it's not the easiest of Zappa albums and doesnt really sound like the 70s or 60s Zappa (excluding the composition style) but again, its a unique and a very wonderful experience.
I think if not for his 70s and 60s rock-jazz influenced works, people would rate it 4* or 5*. Same thing with Dylans blood on the tracks when it came out.

Tasteless "compositions". Chaotic, restless sequences from a restless soul. This "music" is strictly not for the soul. Interesting as a Synclavier production but the sound is typical tasteless Synclavier and very much outdated at the time + typical FZ pointles poses.

In spite of its title, Jazz from Hell is anything but jazz. It rather presents melodies, harmonies and polyrhythmic complexity that are typical for Zappa's music. It's not an electronic work in today's sense, but all tracks (except track 7) are made exclusively with a Synclavier, one of the first computer drived synth.
I'd like to add that Zappa composed in the sixties some (parodic?) electroacoustic works, which are to listen in his first albums.
