Love it or hate it, Over-Nite Sensation was a watershed album for Frank Zappa, the point where his post-'60s aesthetic was truly established; it became his second gold album, and most of these songs became staples of his live shows for years to come. Whereas the Flo and Eddie years were dominated by rambling, off-color comedy routines, Over-Nite Sensation tightened up the song structures and tucked sexual and social humor into melodic, technically accomplished heavy guitar rock with jazzy chord changes and funky rhythms; meanwhile, Zappa's growling new post-accident voice takes over.

Over-nite Sensation" marks Frank's 7th official recording, and followed his classic album "Hot Rats". Over-nite" is a wonderful album with some incredible instrumentation and complex song writing. Time signatures and moods are chopped up throughout working in vintage ZAPPA style. Jean Luc PONTY adds his distinctive violin aspects to the music while the "Mothers" fill in the rest and of yes of course loads of ZAPPA's crazed lyrics and excellent screaming guitar solos. Basically at this point, the MOTHERS only existed as name only. Ian Underwood who was with the MOTHERS since 1967 is on this album, but he's hardly noticed here. The MOTHERS simply became ZAPPA with whoever he can find at the time.

With Over-nite Sensation, it features obscene lyrics and is bizzare, but for a different reason than usual. s discography while keeping the raunchy and quirky lyrics ever present while criticizing the culture of the then-present day. And with the backing vocals of Tina Turner and the Ikettes, and the support of the late Ricky Lancelotti on vocals for Fifty -Fifty and Zomby Woof. Lancelotti would have a falling out with Zappa not long after the recording of this album and after an incident where Lancelotti showed up to rehearsals intoxicated, Lancelotti would refuse to go on tour, accusing Zappa of using him only to learn how to sing. Lancelotti would die from injuries sustained in a car accident in 1980.
