Hungryfreak;2059591 said:My first was Freak Out! and I turned out fine, haha. I would agree Apostrope is the best starting place, though. It's one of the more accessible ones, its awesome, and gives a good idea of some of Zappa's sides. I also think the Strictly Commercial compilation is a good launch point, as it gives you a broader sense of Zappa and you can use it as a reference point for which albums of his you want to look into.

I go up to my dad and ask "Who in the heck is this?" and he's all like "Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention" and then I was like "Oh, so this is Zappa". I'll have to look into this Apostrophe album you guys are talking about too. Thanks for the recommendations guys!:)
