If you’ve heard Lynch’s grating (though mercifully brief) novelty hit ”The United States of Whatever” – a lo-fi version of Frank Zappa’s ”Valley Girl,” without the wit or the musicality – you’ve heard most of what you need to know about his debut album.

Avoid unless you’re just starting college, in which case the album will be issued with your orientation materials.
