'''Trout Mask Replica''' is Music/CaptainBeefheart's most well known and notorious album. Released in 1969, and produced by Music/FrankZappa, it has never been a mainstream success, but became a CultClassic for anyone with an ear for the bizarre and experimental. The record is a good example of TrueArtIsIncomprehensible, especially for first-time listeners. It is known for its jagged rhythms, lack of traditional harmony and melodies and [[SensoryAbuse dissonant sounds]]. Many listeners give up after trying only a few songs or only playing it once. However, for the patient listener "Trout Mask Replica" can be an experience that changes one's view of traditional harmony and melody.

* StepfordSmiler: "Frownland"
--> ''My smile is stuck''
--> ''I cannot go back t' yer frownland''
* StudioChatter: Seeing as Frank Zappa was fond of this, it's unsurprising that a certain amount of studio chatter was left in some of the spoken-word tracks.
--> ''She's too much for my- or anybody's - mirror. Number two.''
* UnbuiltTrope / UrExample: The angular, atonal riffs and odd time signatures predate MathRock by almost 20 years. The nature of the sound also channels then-uncodified NoiseRock.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: "Pena":
--> ''The smoke between her legs made me vomit beautifully''
* WarIsHell: "Veteran's Day Poppy", "Dachau Blues", "Ant Man Bee",... all criticize humanity killing others.
* WordSaladLyrics: Every track with lyrics.

-> ''"I thought it was the worst thing I’d ever heard. I said to myself, they’re not even trying! It was just a sloppy cacophony. Then I listened to it a couple more times, because I couldn’t believe Music/FrankZappa could do this to me – and because a double album cost a lot of money. About the third time, I realised they were doing it on purpose; they meant it to sound exactly this way. About the sixth or seventh time, it clicked in, and I thought it was the greatest album I’d ever heard."''

-> '''Creator/JohnPeel''' in 1995. Two years later he placed it at #1 in a list of his 20 personal favorite albums [[note]] It was by no means meant as a definitive list, as he felt that top albums lists "are terribly self-indulgent" and said "he'd change it to a completely different list if he would be asked again a week later". But it was the only time in his life he agreed to make such a list, so in that regard pretty close to being a definitive list. [[/note]] when asked by the newspaper "The Guardian".
