AllMusic Review by

Two months after the release of Act I, Frank Zappa completed Joe's Garage with the two-LP set Joe's Garage: Acts II & III, meaning that, counting the two contractual albums Sleep Dirt and Orchestral Favorites, he released seven LPs' worth of new material in 1979. Maybe that's why Joe's Garage seems so thin and thrown together, musically and dramatically, especially on its second and third sides.
