Product Description

Amazon.ca

Those of us who worship at the Church of Ween (Hail to the great god Boognish!) know that skinny blond twerp Beck stole his whole shtick from New Jersey musical geniuses Dean and Gene. Always ahead of their time, the brothers Ween have responded by abandoning their traditional lo-fi four-track recording methods and giving us their lushest album yet, Chocolate and Cheese. Not that Ween's fourth effort is polished; that adjective could never describe an album that veers wildly from acoustic Mexican folk songs, to pure '70s disco, to the appropriately named single, "I Can't Put My Finger On It." But Chocolate and Cheese may come even closer than "Push Th' Little Daisies" to fulfilling Dean's goal of establishing Ween as the next Counting Crows. --Jim DeRogatis

5.0 out of 5 stars brown saves lives April 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
it was summer of 1999 or 1998, me, p and the kids all gathered at the corner and it was a special day because p brought with him sacks loaded with homegrown shrooms. "here," says he, handing me about 3/4 of an ounce of dried psillocybin, "these are for you." i eat a couple and he says, "no, eat the whole thing." this is probably the second or third time ever i'd dosed shrooms, so i take the whole bag. needless to say, within an hour the walls were bleeding and every cop on the beat knew i was high and were out to get me--so in desperation i went over to debbie's apartment, cg's girl, and she, cg and i listened to this album over and over for the next few hours while i hid in a fetal ball under a comforter on her ratty couch and smoked hash. later on i went to see ace and the rager's at the old grog. thanks, gene and dean, for pulling me out of my hellish bad trip.
also, this is the best cover ever. screw any humorless birkenstock wearer who says otherwise!

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you surprised when I touch the dwarf Inside? Dec 14 2001
Format:Audio CD
Notwithstanding his actual biological offspring and anyone else he has inspired, influenced or musically begotten, I hereby assert that Dean and Gene Ween are the true heirs to the rock n' roll legacy of Frank Zappa. While their over all sound may not be completely Zappaesque, they are, like Zappa, irreverent and musically accomplished. "Chocolate and Cheese" contains plenty of examples of these qualities but I will choose two of my favorite tracks to illustrate.
1. "Spinal Meningitis (Got Me Down)" - Some might call this mean spirited but I prefer to think of it as irreverent with a vengeance. This track about a child with the title condition leaves me shaking my head at the sheer audacity of it every time I hear it - the tiny voice imploring his "mommy" not to let him die, the chiming beat and the great guitar riffage which close out the song simply must be heard to be believed. Not for those lacking a BIG sense of humor or the easily offended.
2. "A Tear For Eddie" - Melodic instrumental piece featuring alternately gentle and blistering guitar work. I'm not sure to whom the title refers (Eddie Van Halen? Eddie Vedder?) but this track displays surprising musical prowess that let's us know just who the Ween joke is on.
Musically, as others here have noted, this disc is all over the map, touching upon 70's flavor disco and funk, twisted country and more - all the while retaining the goofy Ween charm that has endeared them to so many. This is definitely a masterpiece of sorts. I give it only four stars because there are a couple of tracks (the last two actually) I don't like as much as the rest of the album.

This is definitely the finest piece of music released in the '90's, and perhaps the best CD ever!! While I must admit a statement like that puts Ween in comparison with some of the greatest bands ever, it is deservedly so! By releasing this album, the brothers Ween have proven, without a doubt, what unbelieveably diversified musicians they are. The first five songs on this album prove this point. Song 1: "Take Me Away" shows a very stong, rock 'n roll side of Ween, it has an awesome bar band sound to it that rocks. Song 2: "Spinal Meningitis" is a very soft, eerie, thoughtful song that isn't exactly uplifitng but once again shows the diveristy that is Ween. Song 3: "Freedom of '76" Is a fabulous song that has a smooth, velvety feel to it, the lyrics are sung with such beautiful soul, it is great. Song 4: "I Can't Put My Finger On It" Is a classic weird Ween song that will grow on anyone who listens to it, an instant classic. Song 5: "A Tear for Eddie" Is a fantastic, melodic, instrumental song that takes the listener to a very nice place. This album is purely a magical experience, a little slice of musical brillance that is not widely known of in the world of "popular" music. Every song on this CD is a masterpiece of music making, I would strongly suggest this CD to everyone and anyone. With such strong critics as Henry Rollins supporting the Ween movement, and bands such as Phish covering their tunes, Ween will soon one day take over the universe of stale, boring music that we seem to be currently bogged down in!!!

Deconstructing and reassembling more musical genres than ever before, Ween prove that they can evolve from rambling like lunatics on a Tascam recorder to rambling like lunatics in a professional studio atmosphere without losing their special touch. The greatest thing about the brothers Ween is that they can ramble on about the most bizzare & twisted crackpot ideas while having a keen sense of humor, too. Because "C&C" is also an eclectic mix(or de-mix) of funk, alternative rock, 70's prog rock, Philly Soul, acoustic pop, Prince-style bubblegum pop, folk, Cowboy-drifter ballads, "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" inspired Spanish folk, and their own offbeat style, it is one of the best of their collection to get if you want to try them out. Once you have heard it, you will want to dive deeper into their world, and get all their other albums...except maybe "12 GCG" and "White Pepper" which lack their creativeness. If you do choose to get those, make them the last on your list (You might even want to get the rare, cassette-only independent 80's releases before those two). All in all, this is a great album.

Ween could care less about your feelings, which is great. The problem is that it seems difficult to keep writing songs which are heartless and which also work. Read more
