Primus isn't a very mainstream friendly band. It takes a certain kind of person to really appreciate their music. Antipop wasn't a big hit with the public, but then again, nobody expected it to be. Primus had gone through a slump for a while and nobody expected much from this CD. But when I heard it I was really suprised. This is one of, if not the best album that Primus has put out. Alot of the tracks on the album are very reminiscent of older tracks, while a lot of the CD is going in directions not yet explored by the band. Les Claypool's voice and phenomenal bass skills add a lot to the album. Larry Lalonde throws out some amazing guitar solos in Eclectic Electric, which is my favorite track on the album.

The first few tracks on the album are louder, and more grunge influenced than the latter tracks. The music gets steadilly more bizzare as you go further into the CD. Eclectic Electric is a 7+ minute song that sounds alot like something Pink Floyd would have put out. I think this track is the highlight of their album. Also, after the last track there is a secret unreleased song called the Heckler that is pretty cool.


There is an impressive list of guest musicians/producers that can be found on Antipop including Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), Matt Stone (South Park), Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Jim Martin (Faith No More), James Hetfield (Metallica) and Tom Waits.

If you saw the words Fred Durst and started to get a bad feeling about this album don't worry. He doesnt sing or anything, he just produced one song on the album, Lacquer Head (thank god thats all). This is a cool CD and i'd recommend it to people who like jam music but also like music with a little more of an edge to it.
