Product Description

PRIMUS RHINOPLASTY

Amazon.com

South Park fever has struck, and its victims are turning delirious. Primus, who wrote the intro music for the hit series, named this disc, no doubt, after Tom's Rhinoplasty office in the show. This collection is a particularly demented affair, comprised of six strangely chosen cover tunes, with two live tracks and a remix thrown in for variety. Primus reconstruct the work of XTC, Peter Gabriel, Stanley Clarke, the Police, and even Jerry Reed. The only obvious choice is Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be." Primus treat each song with reverence and creativity, imbuing their trademark sound in each cut without straying too far from the original. As Cartman would say, "Kick ass!" --Jon Wiederhorn

Customer Reviews

Also the extra bonus of the two live songs were a nice touch.

This cd just proves that Primus can and will do anything they want too.

Bass is a very different instrument than it's cousin, the guitar.

This album is one of primus' best works. My personal favorites are Scissorman, Amos Moses, and, of course, Tommy The Cat. I played Tommy for about 6 people and all of them became primus-heads over night and bought the album the next day (no lie). Primus isn't about master chops instead its about having a REALLY good time (having those master chops doesn't hurt things either) I'm as big a fan of victor wooten and Jaco as any serious bass player but claypool's music has something that those other guys are missing...mass appeal. I promise you that les inspired more kids to pick up a bass then victor or jaco ever did. (plus, i dare victor to play and sing tommy the cat like les does)

Primus's Rhinoplasty is more than just a mere album of covers, it is simply amazing. Somehow, the band manages to recreate the trademark sounds of every artist that they cover on the album and still manages to keep some of the trademark Primus sound intact. For starters, the amazing cover of XTC's "Scissorman" would probably make even Andy Partridge (the XTC guy) go, "Hmm, are you sure that's Primus, sounds like us!" Stanley Clarke's amazing instrumental "Silly Putty" (featuring some amazing scratching by DJ Disk) gets perfunctory treatment. Jerry Reed's classic "Amos Moses" is also great, with Larry LaLonde managing to create and exact replica of Jerry's licks, and Les Claypool adding his own vocal spin to it. The Police's "Behind My Camel" is also great, complete with bass chops that sound just like Sting's. Metallica's "The Thing That Should Not Be" is also great. If that wasn't enough, there are three Primus classics, two of them performed live. The remix of "Too Many Puppies" is very danceable. Threre is also a video on the CD accessable through your computer, a claymation video of "The Devil Went Down To Georgia," that is hilarious, and worth the price of admission alone. The thing that really puzzles me about this disc is it is classified as an EP and sold at an EP price, which seems almost criminal considering that most of the current "big" full length albums released today don't even have a hundredth of this much substance.

This record isn't a primus songs album. There are songs of Metallica, Stanley Clark (Auteuil Neuilly Passy, c'est pas du gâteau, Auteuil Neuilly Passy, tel est notre ghetto! TU "smack" VAS "smack" BIEN! ),Peter Gabriel, etc... There are also 2 live tracks (Tommy and Bob), and with the password VIOLIN, you have a enhaced CD which is cool! If you are just discovering Primus, you must buy it.

I was starting to burn out on Primus with the few albums prior to this one, but I had to buy this for the Jerry Reed song. I'm glad I bought it. I remembered "Amos Moses" from my childhood. Primus's version is fresh and different but also a dead on rendition. While I'm not as familiar with many of the remaining songs they are none the less enjoyable and allow Primus to stretch into some stuff I haven't heard from them before. "Scissor Man" would fit nicely into any Primus album musically and lyrically. Silly Putty is a near Acid Jazz instrumental. "The Thing That Should Not Be" doesn't really add much to the Metallica version but is servicable. The two live bonus tracks are exciting versions of two of my favorite Primus songs.
I think that doing this album of covers revitalized something in Primus. I don't think it's a coincidence that their next album Anti-Pop was one of the freshest, best albums they've put out since Sailing The Seas Of Cheese.

I hate to tell you different,"Music fan from San Francisco,California" but Les Claypool is a great bass player.Maybe he isn't as good as those other guys,but tell me who can play the bass like that nowadays?People rarely play instruments anymore,except for drummers.Guitarists simply strum their guitar and act like they're playing,so give Les a little credit.He does better than the rest of them

First of all, anyone that doesnt enjoy this album obviously has no idea what music is or Primus' music for that matter. The rhino is one of my favorite Primus albums, right up there with frizzle fry. i highly encourage anyone, long time fan or newbie, to go out an buy two, three, or four copies of Rhinoplasty, this way you get the full effect...really you do.

This cd just proves that Primus can and will do anything they want too. All the covers are really good. Ones that really stand out are "scissor man", "The Family and the Fishing Net" and "The Thing that should not be". As for the The live songs go, they rock. Live Primus is always a good thing. Too Many Puppies is the only song on the cd that is Primus's songs and isn't live. The enhanced portion of the cd is cool too. Just by watching the animation you can tell that this is Primus. The only down side to this cd is the price, I think it's a bit high. Other then that this cd is great. Any big Primus Fan should have this in their collection. Also check out the Miscellaneous Debris EP which is really awesome too.
