Oh yes, it's the music of the month, the word on the street, the freak of the week!
Primus' first original studio album in 5 years. An original album.. that was based solely on a childrens' book.
Namely, "The Rainbow Goblins" by Ul De Rico.
Don't get me wrong, Les Claypool (the legendary bass player himself) does play out the story is his own crazy way successfully, with an addictive melody and a very surreal/fairy tale-like background.
Only beef I have with this album is that the ending seemed anti-climantic. "The Storm" doesn't really put enough "oomph" into illustrating the rainbow goblins getting their commuppance, where there was potential in making it more shocking or unexpected. (Maybe even transition into a bad@$$ metal vibe like they did way back with Frizzle Fry.)
However, despite its flaws, "The Desaturating Seven" is a pretty good album overall, and it pulls you right into the story. Even as just another one of Claypool's milestone projects (in comparison to even Primus and the Chocolate Factory), its imperfections are still easy to get behind.
And I'd say check it out, if you haven't already!
P.S. All of the artwork for this album was originally from the book. I will agree 100% that Ul De Rico's illustrations are absolutely gorgeous, but that's still kind of a cop-out...
