PRIMUS / Rhinoplasty [1998]

Like Primus' previous EP, Miscellaneous Debris, 1998's Rhinoplasty is a bizarre jumble of cover songs, plus a "remix" and 2 live recordings added to emphasize a bit more on the word "jumble".
This time around the gonzo funksters are adding their own twist to Peter Gabriel, XTC, The Police, Metallica and more with mixed results.  The boys are quite clearly having a lot more fun than they did on Brown Album, making for a rough, yet entertaining listen that isn't fantastic but reassuring to fans.  It's plain and simple fun with no bitter after-taste.
