Frank Zappa

You Are What You Is trades in much of Zappa's usual musical acrobatics for more polished and understated fare and increasingly political satire. Released in 1981, this album contains Zappa's takes on the smell of teen spirit, organized religion, Saturday Night Live's Coneheads, and even racial issues. Highpoints include the mock country of "Harder Than Your Husband," pure-FZ injection of "Theme From 3rd Movement of Sinister Footwear," and the kinetic vocal-drenched title track. --Andrew Boscardin
