    I've been on a HUGE Primus kick for the last year and have been listening to all of their CDs.....This stuff just blows me away.

    For me, the peak was 1991 - 1997 with SAILING THE SEAS OF CHEESE, PORK SODA, TALES FROM THE PUNCHBOWL and THE BROWN ALBUM.

    Still, FRIZZLE FRY, ANTIPOP and PRIMUS & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY are great albums....GREEN NAUGAHYDE is the only album that I've had trouble connecting with.

    I'm gonna say that PORK SODA is my desert island Primus.....love it top to bottom.

    You? :)

    Seas of Cheese pretty much single-handedly steered me out of the hair metal guitar playing world and I will never be able to repay it (and Primus) for that. Frizzle Fry is a close second.

    Frizzle Fry. Great album, though I also really like Sailing the Seas of Cheese. I think Too Many Puppies is my favorite song by those weirdos.

    Funny thing about weekends when you're unemployed; they don't mean so much. 'Cept you get to hang with your working friends...

    OP- You forgot Suck on This! as well. Thats a great album.

    Primus first started coming iup when I was in high school (Suck On This!, Frizzle Fry). My best friend and I became obsessed with Larry Lalonde's playing.

    After Sailing... I kind of lost interest. Not totally, I would follow Primus and Les's projects, but the style (along with other bands in the genre: Mr. Bungle, Nuclear Rabbit, etc) just kind of worn on me.

    I was a massive Primus fan back in the early 90s. I spent many hours jamming Primus tunes on bass.

    I started with Frizzle Fry, then Suck on This, then Cheese, etc. I like Pork Soda quite a bit and Tales to a small degree. I also like the Sausage album that had the original Primus line-up (Todd Huth/Jay Lane).

    Starting with the Brown Album, I lost interest. With each album, vocal and guitar melodies dwindled. Songs didn't seem like songs anymore. There was a lot less structure and things got weirder and weirder. After a while, it just seemed like weird jam sessions with little structure and little melody. I should probably give their latest stuff a shot but most of what I've heard Les do since Tales from the Punchbowl just bores me to death.

    The most underrated one is Antipop. It's better than pretty much everything after STSOC. The hidden version of Heckler is awesome.

    "Pork Soda" only slightly moreso than "Sailing the Seas of Cheese".

    I usually just listen to "To Defy the Laws of Tradition" on an endless loop.

    I agree. I voted Cheeze, but it was close.

    How do you choose among such amazing performances?

    I have to be in a certain mood to listen to Primus, but when I am, nothing else will do.
