Review of The Mothers of Invention: Freak Out

If you don’t know who Frank Zappa is, it is definitely worth learning as he has contributed much to music, namely the alternative or psychedelic music scene. The Mothers of Invention was Frank Zappa’s first band and this album is considered  very influential. Sonic Collective member Darren Scott thought he would introduce Zappa and his band to the group and we had no idea what we were in for.

This album, released in 1966 was definitely a statement. You really have to listen to what we found out about this weird journey as it will help you understand the album… we think. 

We invite you to hear our four differing opinions of this album and learn about this album. In this podcast you will learn the following but much more:

  • Exactly how high were they when they made this album?
  • Help I’m a Rock! Was dedicated to a very famous rock star. Find out who.
  • We will tell you why this album is all over the place … or is it?
