Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Les Claypool's premature midlife crisis has resulted in the second of two grandiose albums in under four months. But Live Frogs--Set 2, recorded at the same two-night stint in San Francisco as the first set, is a much different beast than the inventive jam-band noodlings of its predecessor. And beast is the operative term. The bass master decided to take on the darkest of Pink Floyd's albums, doing an almost note-perfect rendition of Animals. Claypool and company have subsumed Roger Waters's nihilistic lyrics and rendered them even spookier by giving them a more ominous comic-book feel--imbuing the words with much more irony and adenoidal bite than Waters and David Gilmour's original sterile, android-like vocals. Although Frog Brigade's made-for-TV version of the bleak anthropomorphic classic lacks the subtle orchestration of the original, they do make up for it in sheer zealousness and invention. --Jaan Uhelszki

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Musicianship, Jaw-Dropping Performance September 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this disc unsure of what to expect: I am a casual fan of Primus, enjoyed some of Claypool's collaborations and excursions with Buckethead and others, and certainly am a big Pink Floyd fan, though Animals is not one of my favorites, so I was not sure what this would sound like.

Here's the answer: Amazing! It's a jaw-dropping showcase of top-flight musicians, jamming and grooving on an album they obviously know and love. It's clear they are enjoying every minute, and the results speak for themselves, the music recalls the album but does not mimic it, with pure inspired performances from start to finish. Indeed, I have new-found appreciation for both this band and for the original Animals, which I promptly pulled out to listen after hearing this re-imagination.

It's also a bit different from other "stunt" albums along these lines, such as Phish's live Halloween tributes to the Beatles or The Who, which are ok but have more of a loose, fooling-around kind of vibe. This is the real deal, these musicians are deadly serious about making it work, they are invested in the material and the performances and it shows. Although Gilmour and Waters have nothing to worry about as far as Claypool's vocals are concerned, this one is a winner and I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars How amazing is this? March 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I read the other reviews and wonder what they are listening to. Some of them hint towards the greatness in this album, but none really say how good it is. As a huge Pink Floyd and a Les Claypool fanatic, so I was looking forward to this. Of course I would've never expected such a mark of craftsmanship from Les Claypool.
This album really shows how he is not just a wacko playing the bass, he is one of the best musicians in the world right now. He took an amazing album (one of the best ever in my eyes), and modernized. He kept all the same notes and sounds beautifully, and added his very own Les style. Unbelieveable! Any Pink Floyd fan BETTER get this album, and anyone not into Pink Floyd, get it, you will be after a few runs through this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A testament to the universal appeal of music March 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is a testament to the universal appeal of music. You can't imagine two more different bands - in terms of geographical origin, philosophical outlook and musical disposition - than late-70s Pink Floyd and early-noughties Frog Brigade. And yet the Frog Brigade play Pink Floyd's album `Animals' live in its entirety, and something magical happens.
Do the Frog Brigade even know what they're singing about on here? `Animals' is a terribly bleak album. Its three major songs are cruel dissections of 1970s British society, with lyrics penned by the miserabilist Roger Waters - `Dogs' is about mercenaries and tyrants, `Pigs (Three Different Ones)' is a portrait of three unsavoury figures in British public life, and `Sheep' is an awfully scathing, not to mention awfully patronising, attack on ordinary Joes. That's you and me, folks. The drab sepia picture of London's Battersea Power Station on the cover of `Animals' says it all (this picture is reproduced on the back cover of `Live Frogs Set 2', but with the inflatable pig next to Battersea Power Station irreverently replaced with an inflatable frog).
The Frog Brigade, by contrast, are exuberant people, American through and through, who enjoy playing protracted jams wearing wacky costumes. And yet somehow, their rendition of `Animals' works. The Frog Brigade are clearly enormous fans of `Animals' (in the sleevenotes, Claypool touchingly recounts his first encounter with the album as a boy), and have worked hard to do justice to it.
The vocals are passable, if workmanlike. But the playing is phenomenal - although even in this department, the band is careful not to overdo it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Les does Pink June 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This entire album is a live recording of Les Claypool's band covering Pink Floyd's "Animals" album. This happens to be one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums, so when I happened to hear that he did this I picked it up. It definitely does not disappoint, staying relatively close to the album throughout. The musicianship is definitely on par with Floyd, and the vocals are surprisingly well done. A great effort and a great listen for any Floyd fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars picky yuppies! July 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
yeah the songs are long!duh,it IS the animals album they're covering here,folks!I think that they did a fine job.you also gotta realize that with cover songs/albums either the group tries to get the song(s) as close to the originals as possible,or improvises them some.in this case the just did them the same as the originals-big deal!there doesn't ALWAYS have to be drastic innovations and changes in a cover song to make it different(les claypool does the vocals-how much more "different" can you get?)
anyhoo,don't let the rediculous bad reviews of this disc lead you astray cause it's awesome and truly a "must have" if you don't already own pink floyd's original version.(I was actually bout to get the floyd cd before I looked in the primus section @ the cd store and saw this!)p.s. it's better than the first frogs set by faaaar!
