Love it or hate it, Over-Nite Sensation was a watershed album for Frank Zappa, the point where his post-’60s aesthetic was truly established; it became his second gold album, and most of these songs became staples of his live shows for years to come. Whereas the Flo and Eddie years were dominated by rambling, off-color comedy routines, Over-Nite Sensation tightened up the song structures and tucked sexual and social humor into melodic, technically accomplished heavy guitar rock with jazzy chord changes and funky rhythms; meanwhile, Zappa’s growling new post-accident voice takes over the storytelling. … As with much of Zappa’s best ’70s and ’80s material, Over-Nite Sensation could be perceived as ideologically problematic (if you haven’t got the constitution for FZ’s humor), but musically, it’s terrific.
