Not a sellout by any measure.
Everything on this album is in keeping with Don's love of blues/R&B/avant-garde jazz.
Ultimately, this is a great blues-rock album which was his best effort at reaching a wide audience.
If he had followed this with Shiny Beast, he would have been making great (and successful) records well into the 80's/
I don't think it sold so well, but this was Beefheart's one great shot at selling out. This thing really rocks, without sacrificing an ounce of integrity. From the itchy seduction of Lo Yo Yo to the outright beauty of Blue Million Miles and climaxing with the mind melting Big Eyed Beans from Venus, this is exhilarating fun. A total joy!
Classic Beefheart all the way.
