This album only confirms what a musical genius Frank Zappa really was. The fact that he composed all these songs is amazing. This album was on the Classical charts for almost a year and it was nominated for a Grammy for best new classical work. World renown composer Pierre Boulez conducted the first two songs and the fourth track as well. The music here isn't full blown orchestral Classical music but is really Chamber music that allows us to hear each of the instruments as they come and go at a slower pace

The Perfect Stranger is one of Zappa's most known classical works. I can't say it's his best classical, but I do like it and while not up to the quality of The Yellow Shark, there are some great pieces here. This album is a bit different from Orchestral.
