Prime weirdness from The Residents! It's fair to consider Fingerprince as a transitional effort from the group, though it's not a dismissible one – it's out there, exciting and may be easier to get all the way through than some of the more anti-pop experiments they delivered in the mid-to-late 70s. It's probably not as confrontational as Meet The Residents and Third Reich 'N Roll – or perhaps it just seems less vicious because the cover art isn't as confrontational. Side one has shorter pieces, which seem to be informed by vintage exotica and field recordings, though it sounds like nothing but the Residents. Side 2 is a single long suite. Titles include "You Yesyesyes", "Home Age Conversation", "Godsong", "March De La
Winni", "Bossy", "Boo Who?", "Tournequit Of Roses" and the the 17+ minute, side-long "Six Things To A Cycle". Features a whole bonus CD of "finger ephemera" - with titles that include "Whoopy Snorp", "Piano Dittie", "Entrance To Crypt", "Leapmus", "Godsong (studio rehearsal)", "Fingerprince Concentrate", "Walter Westinghouse (rehearsal)", "Clumsy Climb", and some live tracks too!
