Editorial Reviews

Sailing The Seas Of Cheese is one of a handful of vital albums that ushered in the 1990s alternative revolution, answering slick 80s productions with a more irreverent - less glammy approach to rock. In a restoration personally overseen by Les Claypool, Primus acclaimed Sailing The Seas Of Cheese has been newly mixed in stereo and Dolby 5.1 Surround for the first time since its 1991 debut for an expanded deluxe edition featuring the album s new stereo mix on CD and the new 5.1 surround mix on DVD plus three exclusive, previously unreleased bonus tracks, including two live recordings from Primus 2012 3D Tour and a Bassnectar Remix of Here Come The Bastards. DVD audio options include Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround (48kHz/24-bit), Dolby Digital Stereo (48kHz/24-bit), DTS 5.1 Surround (48kHz/24-bit).

Here's a story... I was over at my friend's house and he asks me if I have ever heard of the band Primus. I said yes because I heard Jerry was a Race Car Driver on the radio. He put on a DVD called Animals should not try to act like People or something like that and played all these WEIRD primus vids!! The band instantly started to grow on me and i bought their latest CD "Antipop". While it does have one of the best primus songs ever(In my opinion), Lacquer Head.. the rest of the tracks sound nothing like the Primus i heard on the DVD. So i got Sailing the Seas of Cheese and it is AWESOME!!! Garunteed you will love it. Here is a list of tracks and the score i give them.
1. Seas of Cheese - 7.5/10 A nice little intro featuring some interesting vocals.
2. Here come the b@stards - 8/10 I've seen multiple reviews bash this song for being repetitive. I love it for some reason and it is one of my favorites on the CD.
3. Sgt. Baker - 9.5/10 Definitely one of the best on the CD. This song has an interesting chorus about what drill sergeants do to their troops, i will read it for you to get you excited to hear it: I will rape your personality
Pummel you with my philosophy
Strip you of your self integrity
To make you all just a bit like me!!
Truly an amazing song.
4. American Life - 10/10 Again.. another amazing song, Primus tends to bunch the highlights of the cd together. The song definitely has a MUCH more depressing note to it then the first 3 tracks. It tells the stories of 3 immigrants and the woes that met them when they came to America.
5. Jerry was a Racecar Driver - 8/10 A lot of people consider this the best song on the CD. While it is a fantastic song, i disagree.

This is one of my favorite albums.

Not because it's weird, not because the bass-playing is good, and not because it has clay models swimming in a bowl of cheese dip on the cover... though that last one does contribute...

Nay, it is simply because the album makes me smile. Who can hold back a grin when the lyrics to Jerry Was a Race Car Driver are sung in flawless redneck dialect? And the journey you are taken on into the life of a macho cat (Tommy the Cat) is epic and unforgettable. You may even feel inspired to hike up to a lake of our own Northwest and fish when you hear Fish On.

If you are suffering the symptoms of clinical depression, please call and order Sailing the Seas of Cheese today. Seriously.

Primus are my personal favorite band, and as well as being one of the most talented, innovative, and downright insane bands over the past decade, they also made (in my own opinion) the greatest album in the history of rock. It has Les Claypool's great bass and nasal vocals, as well as insane drumming and even better guitar, adding to the quirkiness of it all. Although many consider Primus a metal band, a funk band, or a progressive band, I feel that they are truly in a league of their own, with no one else even coming close to their sheer musicianship. "Sailing The Seas..." has samples, the best bass ever, funny vocals and disturbing lyrics, as well as guitar shredding and up and down nonstop drumming. It is everything you should want in an album. If you are a teen struggling to fit in (I'm not...just cause'...yeah) don't listen to this. If you are looking for something unique, different, and better than everything you've ever bought, yeah, this is for you. Suggested tracks: Jerry Was A Race Car Driver, Those Damned Blue Collar Tweakers, Is It Luck? Suggested Bands: Mr. Bungle, Faith No More, El Stew. Suggested albums: Buckethead's Monsters And Robots, Primus' Pork Soda, mr. Bungle's California.

Just one late night spin so far, but had it cranked, & loved the surround mix in 5.1 True HD!!! Awesome choices for drum, vocal, and guitar tracks panning around with great but reasonable effect. Bass was thick & full. Drums are tight and well defined. Dynamic range is natural & has a great sense of depth. This will have several replays in the coming days!!! PCM 5.1 next!(not as good post True HD) Best track in surround is the drum intro to Eleven! Sounds like you are sitting at the kit as the toms surround you.

PS: the visual media is just like g-force visualizer over some odd 50's & 60's stock film footage. Not much too look at after 1st play, but the audio & mix are top notch.

PSS: for audiophiles, the 5.1 mixes, both PCM & Dolby True HD are only 48kHZ/24bit not 96kHz/24bit as advertised & stated on the back of the case. This will only matter in 10% of home audio systems, but this is the same sample rate as stated on the DVD edition for $2 less. Since more people have DVD systems still, it is a bit of knock against buying Blu-ray editions if they are not superior to DVD editions...Just saying cause it's a truth in advertising issue for me personally!

When I first heard Primus, I was shocked by the originality of it. I'm very interested in punk and 80's hardcore, and I was shocked by how chaotic these guys were without having to play at breakneck speed. Yet, beneath all of the chaos lies great talent and in some cases great meaning to the songs.

People tend to view Primus as a talented comedy band, which is fine, but there's more to them than that. Primus gets beneath the skin of the average American redneck, and exploits them (like I feel they should be). Many people tend to ignore the political messages of the songs.

Then again, there are some songs that are clearly jokes (Tommy the Cat), and some songs that are clearly serious (Eleven). The variety of the lyrics are very refreshing.

Now, the music is just amazing. I love bands who experiment, and although Les Cleypool is clearly an amazing bass player, what makes Primus really click for me is Larry LaLonde's guitar playing. He can produce great ambient sounds. Not everyone will notice it, but if it was taken away from the music, Primus wouldn't be nearly the same.

Basically, if you want something refreshing, buy this album.
