Album 365: Day 170 - Oysterhead - The Grand Pecking Order

The Grand Pecking Order

Favorite tracks: Little Faces, Army's On Ecstasy, Pseudo Suicide
Sleeper tracks: Shadow of a Man, Wield the Spade

Les Claypool: bass/vocals
Trey Anastasio: guitars/vocals
Stewart Copeland: drums

Of course this was a highly anticipated release and I think I probably bought it the day it came out.  I played it once through, listened to the first 3 songs a few times more and didn't listen to the whole album again until now.

I like Primus, Phish and The Police.  I think this album sounds too much like Les Claypool's solo stuff (pick a band name) and because of that, I was turned off.  I appreciate the musicianship but it didn't blow me away. Guess since they only did one record, they weren't too thrilled with the band either.  Maybe Copeland was too much of a prick.
