What are your thoughts? I really enjoy hearing it come alive again, though you won't get regular performances of it  :'(

^^ yeah that one.
The Pleated Gazelle is one of my favorite Zappa works, nice to see a complete release of it. Though I prefer one of the slightly older recordings of it available on YouTube.
There is Webern and Kagel written all over that piece, especially Webern in the choral and vocal parts.  ;D
