This, folks, is why you should not attempt to be a pop star, especially if you are an avant-garde genius like Beefheart. The compositions on here are absolutely unimaginative, lackluster, and downright Sad! compared to what you get on Trout Mask Replica, Lick My Decals Off, etc. Lazy Music is right. Beefheart himself encouraged people to take this album and Bluejeans and Moonbeams back to the record store for a refund, though B&M is the better of the two albums because it has Observatory Crest on it.

Unconditionally Guaranteed, the universally derided album from Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band is commonly regarded as the nadir of the Captain’s career, the pariah among the pearls. When Unconditionally Guaranteed made its appearance in 1974, things had changed. This was a very different Captain- gone was the cunning word play and rich visual imagery. Gone were the tunes with sharp corners which gave you a quick jab in the ribs just as soon as you thought you had settled into them.
The Captain clutching dollar bills on the cover of Unconditionally Guaranteed offers a not-so-subtle clue as to what happened. See, being an avant-garde musician doesn’t exactly pay the bills, and while Vliet hoarded most of his band’s earnings for himself, his bandmates lived in literal poverty, relying on food stamps, and donations from family members.
