One might think that the Rz in their 30+ years may have come back to the beginning of their creative output and dried themselves out when they put out two remix discs--this, and a remix of the previously only mythological _WB_ album that got them their monicker when it was returned to them quite anonymously.

And one may think that the Rz have simply become over the hill and have to go back through previous stuff for anything of interest, considering their three-volume _Best Left Unsaid_ series that rereleases Rz instrumental music.

But I tend to think that this release helps highlight what the Rz do best, and that is instrumental music. The original _King & Eye_ was a little too dependent on Cube-E, a conceptual concert that looked at the roots of American music. The Elvis section may have been more sensical in the context of the full show, but the original _King & Eye_ seemed a little too monotone, with most all of the versions working through the same deep, Southern tone. This remix lets some of the other aspects of the Elvis revisioning come through, and it is something of a pleasure. While I think the Homer Flynn voice has become a little too prevalent of the RZ stuff of the past decade at least, the mixes here lighten the load and make this once again an intersting album.

Leave it to our favorite eyeball audiophobes to skewer the "King" in the Keester!

They remix and re-do most all of the "Pelvis'" hits in Residential funereal tonal qualities, making each and every Elvis hit dark gloomy and foreboding! In many of the songs, the Residents sound so much better than Elvis ever could!

"Return To Sender" is an example. The dark funeral parlor music accompaning the singer changes the whole meaning and experience of the original Elvis hit to one so dark and depressing! "Hound Dog" is so toe tapping, it feels like a phoenix visited Graceland and dug up the King's corpse to witness the way that song REALLY ought to be done!

And, as a bonus, after about every 4 songs, we get a little narrative about the "Baby King" by a Resident. He explores and explains to his grandchildren all the King's emotional instabilities, his attempting to make Priscella into the image of his Mother, and the King's descent to drugs and death for the sake of wanting the world to love him. He explains to the child that as far as Elvis is concerned, what was he really king of?! He was the King of Need! He needed more than anyone else. But after all he was a baby!

If you love Elvis, stay away from this one! But if you see through the Graceland fantasy, this one is right up your alley!

Wow, what can one say about this besides it is perhaps some of the most interesting, twisted and clever vibrations on the planet.

What do you get when you take great classic songs and run them through three sets of the most qualified musical entrails of the last 50 years: Elvis Prestly, The Residents and Paralyzer? Well, whatever it is it just gets better with each successive digestive cycle. First Elvis consumes the material and produces raw, viceral, energy. Then The Residents break that down to it's fundamental psycic elements. Finally Paralyzer picks up all the pieces and brings them back together in a shiny, dazzling piece of pop culture.

Worthy of a few chortles and potentially mind-altering, this musical acid-trip will cure what ills you. Not Just for die-hard Residents fans.
