Product Description

Amazon.ca

Bruce Springsteen used the Jersey Shore as the backdrop for his tragic-heroic tales of everyday people in nowhere places. Ween, as you might expect, have a slightly different take on the proud coastline between New York and Atlantic City, the place where they recorded much of their new album, The Mollusk. Gene and Dean are more interested in dead jellyfish, rusted beer cans, flotsam and jetsam, dirty syringes and other assorted detritus that washes up. As for the kind people who live near the water? Ween's only interested in the ones who lurk at amusement park freak shows--and even then, only the really twisted ones. The Mollusk was made between rounds of surf-fishing for bluefish and bass--both before and after the water pipes burst in their winter beach house/studio, leaving recording equipment adrift in an indoor flood. Naturally, the album sounds thoroughly soaked. This is Ween's 'wet' album, in much the same way last year's 12 Golden Country Greats was their Nashville album. Songs like "The Golden Eel" and "Ocean Man" mine the water motif quite literally, while the hilarious title track and "Polka Dot Tail" take it one step further, the first by aping the dopey Brit folk mysticism of Donovan's "Atlantis" and the second by lumbering whimsically like "Yellow Submarine." Other tracks, such as the opening ditty "I'm Dancing in the Show Tonight," are more impressionistically soaked: the piano notes sprinkle lightly, the tuba plods like a foot through mud, and the vocals warp as if they were accidentally thrown into the washing machine. Though they're good enough songwriters to play it straight and almost get away with it ("It's Gonna Be" sounds pulled from the Peter Cetera songbook), the Ween boys are at their best on songs like "Mutilated Lips," when they're foraging through the grotesque, the surreal, the outright nasty--anything that titillates their sick sense of humor. They're still guys who get off on weird sounds (such as "Pink Eye"'s vacuum cleaner melody and dog bark percussion) and wiener jokes ("Waving My Dick in the Wind"). And what's most fun for us is hearing how much fun it still seems to be for them. --Roni Sarig

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for stoners Jan. 16 2012
By OpenMind TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:LP Record
Ween has a large following, though a more mainstream-oriented listener may not know it. Occasionally labelled as "experimental rock", this mystifying duo defies convention and definition. Their albums, showcasing Gene and Dean's penchant for pushing the boundaries of "rock", are often as varied as one song is to the next. Enter "The Mollusk", possibly their most cohesive work, and certainly one of their most accomplished. Musical talent abounds but isn't wasted on open-ended psychedelic noise. The bulk of the songs on this album tell a story or convey a particular mood--effectively and enchantingly. I'm a rocker at heart, but I like something different every now and then...but not inaccessibly different. The Mollusk fills that niche incredibly well. If you're bored with mainstream rock or pop and want to shake things up (but not too drastically), I'd highly recommend this diamond in the rough.

Ween is a great band. Enough said.
This is a great album.
Again, enough said.
From the opening "I'm Dancing In the Show Tonight" to the crazy Moody Blues-esque closer, this album is hi-lar-i-ous!
If you're putt off by nasty lyrics and weirdness, then don't by this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one... Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
When people ask me what is the one ween album that you need, i say that you need all of them. This is the best one, though. ween albums always seem to be a mixed bag as far as musical styles go, ranging drastically between tracks, you never know what is going to happen after the two second silence between songs. that is the beauty of ween, no matter how brown and poop-scented it may be. there have been a few (if not all) ween albums that i hated after the first listen, only to come back a couple of days later begging for more. after you familiarize and get comfortable with it, you come to love it similiar to taking cough syrup.
but the mollusk is on a level of it's own. it is a concept album that is best heard from start to finish. it starts with a little waltzy cover of "dancing in the show tonight". it is an odd place to start, especially hearing the childish vocals. next is "the mollusk", a song that every human with a soul loves upon their first listen. this song brought back man beach memories from my childhood, fishing with uncles, etc. "polka dot tale" is brown and not my favorite, prolly my least on the album. "i'll be your johnny on the spot" is a nice quick tune that makes my gas petal foot push harder. "mutilated lips" is an amazing song that makes me want to burst and implode at the same time. words, aside from its very lyrics, can't descrbe how i feel about this song that has the most amazing (and quite possibly longest) chorus ever. "the blarney stone" hits home for me as well. i'm irish, i drink, and i love rowdy pubs. "It's gonna be" is the intermission for the audience. it is a nice little love song, but feel free to go to the bathroom while it's playing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last of The Good ones! April 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
I DO think that this album is their most interesting punk play on art rock, humorous, inventive, and intellegent work to date! The listener must understand that Ween never expected to be taken seriously when they FIRST started as teenagers back in the early nineties. Chocolate & Cheese got my attention and it was their 3 or 4th album!
Ween was Crude, bodacious, daring, inventive and just flat out fun to listen to (if you like the dark side- for Mullosk). Musically, up through Mollusk, they were very intellegent. This is melodic (sort of) punk. Excellent spin!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite album of all time! Feb. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was so glad to see this as a five-star album. Not only is this Ween's best album, it is also THE best album ever, in my opinion. A lot of the other reviews for this really didn't cover the deepness (no pun intended, ha ha) of this material. These are mostly catchy, fun songs on the surface (another unintended ocean pun) but if you really pay attention to it, you will be amazed. And that is Ween in a nutshell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ween at their Best? June 22 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is probably my favorite Ween album. The creativity here is astounding and the production just sweeps you away. Beautiful melodies from a seemingly random selection of different genres, but always with the quirky ween-esque touch. Every song is a classic.
I'd rate the Ween albums I've heard like this:
1) The Mollusc
2) Chocolate and Cheese
3) Twelve Golden Country Greats
4) White Pepper
