PRIMUS / Brown Album [1997]

Bizarro funk metal act Primus replace their original drummer Tim Alexander with a guy simply known as Brain on 1997's Brown Album.
The basic sound of Primus isn't drastically changed with the slight line-up change however it's uninspired writing and dry mix heavily detracts from the enjoyment.  The whole album sounds like Robert Crumb leading some sort of military march down Sesame Street, which should normally be great but for some reason it never gels together.  Maybe they were just tired after extensive touring and promotion after the huge success of their previous album.
