Frizzle Fry

Primus

1990

Primus's most hard-hitting album, and probably it's most fun album…highly influential (and nutty) funk-metal debut.  Les Claypool is a freak on the bass (as he is in general too).  Primus at their most immediate.

Sailing the Seas of Cheese

Primus

1991

All things considered, this is probably Primus's best album.  It's their most well-rounded, and has the most variety.  Although it lacks the punch of Frizzle Fry, it's a more unified album, with better songs overall, and hardly any filler.  It's completely nutty, as you might expect, and of course it's a lot of fun too.  Some of the more underwhelming songs definitely grow on you after a while, and you find that there really are no bad songs on this album.  Overall, hard to argue this is not Primus's best.

Pork Soda

Primus

1993

Probably Primus's most menacing album, somewhat less quirky in nature and more malevolent.  Also probably a bit heavier too, but it kind of sacrificies some of the funk/groove in favor of heaviness, so hard to say that this is better than their prior two efforts...still delightfully cooky funk-metal for twisted hillbillies from hell.
