Eskimo is an album by the Residents. The album was originally supposed to follow 1977's Fingerprince; however, due to many delays and arguments with management, it was not released until 1979. Upon release it was hailed as the group's best record to date.

This is the sixth album by The Residents. The album is highly influenced by N. Senada and his musical theories. After disappearing for many years, Senada had returned to The Residents' home, with a jar of freezing air and tapes upon tapes of Inuit folk songs. These objects along with Senada's Theory of Obscurity gave them inspiration to record an album about Eskimo culture. It was released in 1979.

Commercial Album is an album released by the Residents in 1980. It is commonly considered a follow-up of Duck Stab/Buster & Glen. The album pares down the concept and structure of the average commercial pop song and reduces it to a one-minute redux. It contains a compilation of 40 such sixty-second vignettes.

After Eskimo was released The Residents responded to the furor of fuss and praise it generated by taking various bits out of the album and re-working them to a disco parody of the original. The band then took over San Francisco's largest disco hall and held a release party featuring "weird" and "new" music. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Eskimo, The Residents decided to present the album in a unique and collaborative way. Spanning two LPs and one CD, Eskimo (Deconstructed) is a collection of over 70 individual musical elements, chants, loops and sound effects recorded on location by the group in the mid-late 1970s. This was offered not only to give fans an opportunity to "walk around inside a masterpiece, the viewing angles almost infinite," but also to rearrange and and re-interpret the album on their own. In many ways this release is an extension of the I AM A RESIDENT project.

Ex-Henry Cow member Chris Cutler plays a lot of the percussion on the album, especially on the finale, "Festival of Death," the only real piece of rhythmic music here, which shines out as anything but dark or sinister. In any other group's hands this would have been a pretentious disaster, but the Residents pull it off through spirit, humor, and sheer bravado.
