This is my favorite Primus album. With songs like Tommy the Cat and Jerry was a Racecar Driver, this album is all about Les Claypool and his amazing bass. From track one through fourteen this album has got amazing bass lines, awesome guitar solos, and great drumming. I reccomend this album to any fan of Primus, anyone who plays bass, and anyone who enjoys good music.

Sailing The Seas Of Cheese is PRIMUS's best album. 1. Seas of cheese-Good intro. 2. Here Come The Bastards-All around good song. 3.SGT.Baker-Great Drums. 4.American Life-insane riff. 6.Jerry Was a Racecar Driver-One of Larry's best solos. 6.Eleven-Crazy drum intro, and Nasty song. 7.Is It Luck?-The bass is really intense. 8.Grandpa's little Ditty-A clip of Les's Grandpa singing in the shower. 9.Tommy The Cat-Incredible Song. No other PRIMUS song is like this one. 10.Sathington Waltz-Trippy musical riff. 11.Those Damn Blue Collared Tweekers-Great song. Cool chorus riff and one of Les's best bass solo's. 12.Fish On (The Fisherman Chronicles Part II)-Starts out with a masterful 45 second bass intro. Drums are incredible throught the whole song, and about half way through it changes to an intense 3 minute bass solo. Possibly the greatest of all PRIMUS songs.
This was PRIMUS's third album (1st-Suck On This,2nd-Frizzle Fry), and what really makes it incredible is that there isn't a bad song on it. The whole album is highly entertaining and enjoyable. Also Les uses a six-string fretless bass called the "Rainbow Bass" customly made by Carl Thompson. This incredible instrument produces some amazing songs on Sailing The Seas of Cheese, which is easily PRIMUS's best album. GET THIS ALBUM
