Ok, time for some negativity...

Look, I've been listening to 10/26/89 recently, the fabled Miami Dark Star... I think it sucks tail pipe. It's boring, and falls apart too often. Sure, there are some creepy and/or cool moments, but over all, I consider it a stinker.

The Estimated>Blow Away before it, on the other hand, is pretty solid.

I have a bit of trouble with that tinkly chorused MIDI piano sound - THOSE moments - and I wish he'd used a real piano.

Welcome back Soeharto1!

Yes, fake piano loses to real piano every time...
I don't get it either, at that point, money should not have been an issue... Brent could clearly play regular piano, etc...

Laziness?

Having to employee a piano tuner and lugging a several hundred pound instrument around was getting to be a pain in the ass. I think that's what I read...

That and I think the band thought the new technology perfectly fitted for the sound they were going for, at that given time.

The 80s were an era of Bad Sounds and Surrender To The Technology.

Zappa played a tour in 1984, I'd say it wasn't too shabby, except for Chad Wackerman's electric drum sound - which drags every tape and every release down. By 1988 Zapa had learnt the lesson, and even hired a bunch of saliva shiny bona fide brass palyers and let Chad play real drums ... but then FZ went beserk with samples... ah yes the seductive timestamping technology.
