Probably Primus' least-loved work, and probably their grittiest, The Brown Album is by far my favourite thing Les Claypool has ever done. That is saying a lot, as I love everything he has ever done; I can't even think of an exception.

Every track on The Brown Album tells a story of sorts, in that strange, eccentric way with words Claypool has. This adds a lot of personality to the album; each song has a character to it.

Perhaps the most appealing thing about this album, to me, is the dirty, fuzzy, distant sound all the instruments - especially the drums - have. It is just a tone that I find really appeals to me, although I can easily understand why it might bother other people.

Yes, I love this album to tears now, but it was not always so. A warning to the listener, this one is a grower for sure. If you don't like it, try again some time later; you may be surprised.
