OK. This is a country album. Ha ha ha! If you don't like country music DON'T let that scare you! If you like good, fun music (or if you like Ween at all), you will like this a lot. If you like Monty Python or Frank Zappa or Phish (or Country music!) you will also like it. When I first heard it I didn't know who it was. The 1st thing I thought (obviously) was that it was funny as hell in a VERY high-brow way. The execution is FLAWLESS. They brought in some of Nashville's best musicians and the musicianship is TOP-NOTCH. Pedal Steel, Fiddle, Bluegrass Guitar, twangy Telecaster pickin', it's all here. Not what you would normally associate with Ween. They use just about every country music cliche to a wonderful effect, writing good, memorable songs that are funny in the way they use those very traditional elements. It's not making fun of country music at all, but rather, drawing laughs from what are some of the most common elements that you didn't even consciously realize are there. All in a very intelligent, musical way. Each song is different from the next one, and they find endless variations on what one might think could only be a one joke LP. But because they are so creative, it doesn't get old. To really GET the humor I think you have to listen to the whole CD, as opposed to listening to a song here and there. So I shouldn't go into it song by song. But this album ALWAYS makes me smile. It really is excellent and, by far, my favorite album by them.
