Thanks to @Brando for recommending this to me.

Sailing the Seas of Cheese (such a great title) is the 2nd album (and major-label debut) from American rock band Primus, released in May 1991.
It was recorded at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California from August 2nd, 1990 til January 17th, 1991.

It's tricky to summarise this album without starting off by stating that there's a lot of entertainment value to be had with it.
Their goofy style of humour is one thing that stands out as a high point. ... read more


He drove so goddamn fast.


This is Primus at their most commercial. It doesn’t really mean much though 💀 I just like the standout songs on this album a lot.


while not as mind-blowing as their debut, sailing the seas of cheese remains a silly, funky and memorable primus record

favs: sgt baker // jerry was a race car driver // eleven // tommy the car // ❤ fish on
least fav: american life


A more consistent, but just as weird Pork Soda

Favorite Track: Jerry Was a Racecar Driver

Least Favorite Track: Here Come the Bastards (the cut-off at the end kinda ruins the vibe for me)


Wasn't really feelin' this one tbh.
It's not BAD perse but it's definitely overshadowed by the two records it's sandwiched between.
Favorite Tracks: Jerry Was a Race Car Driver, Is It Luck?, Tommy the Cat
Least Favorite Track: Sgt. Baker
