AllMusic

Trout Mask Replica is Captain Beefheart's masterpiece, a fascinating, stunningly imaginative work that still sounds like little else in the rock & roll canon.

Trout Mask Replica is the work of a collective—a serendipitous line of charged neurons that wired together to make something truly magical.

Edit: over a year later I see I offended people. Funny enough I ended up hearing 20 minutes of material from this thing and I think it is one of the worst albums I have ever heard
