Product Description

Product Description

Kings of home recording, the two masterminds of Ween (grade school friends and twin brothers Gene and Dean) have taken the four-track portastudio to the very limits of its potential on this compilation of the throwaways from the sessions for their Elektra debut Pure Guava . Recorded in an apartment above a barn in their home town of New Hope, Pennsylvania, their studio, affectionately named The Pod , featured the aforementioned recording device, a few crappy 80's effect boards, various drum machines, keyboards, guitars, and copious quantities of inhalants. The cover art even features a mangling of the cover of The songs of Leonard Cohen with a gas mask equipped to aid the inhalation of Scotch Guard spray starch covering Leonard's face. What is contained within is one of the most eclectic, original, and truly warped collection of songs . . . ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only for the brown of heart June 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
This ween album is right up there with "God, Ween, Satan." If you don't like ween, it's an acquired taste, and you should stick to White Pepper, Chocolate & Cheese or The Mollusk. Musically, The Pod sounds like re-masters of their four track demos, but there's diamonds in the turds, such as: Dr. Rock, Sketches of Winkle, Awesome Sound.. etc. Ween plays so many songs from The Pod in their live gigs that they sound much better in a live venue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Slop Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've read these positive reviews and I can see merit in most of them, but I will say that this is by far the worst Ween album ever. Yes, it takes patience and concentration to listen to and "appreciate" but, these songs are not lo-fi masterpieces that will make you laugh and cry or whatever. Yeah, they're funny, but I can make funny songs with a 4-track and my bong. I can enjoy an album that takes weeks to get into, but I cannot sit through this album long enough to let it penetrate deep into my psyche and then reveal itself in all it's gloriousness. I wish I could distribute a record of me and my roommate doing the same thing and then have people praise me online. If this was a record made by, say, The Goo Goo Dolls, would y'all still lavish it with the same praise? P.S. I've decided to give "The Pod" another try. I will listen to it with an open mind and then make a more informed decision.

Not for everyone,
challenging but rewarding,
try The Mollusk first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hit Me Again!!!!! Sept. 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A great sense of humor and great musicianship is the best way I can describe the band that is Ween. Every time I listen to The Pod I bust into hysterics whenever I hear "Sorry Charlie", "Captain Fantasy"....well pretty much the whole album. Some one star reviewers ragged on The Pods production, calling it unlistenable, what a shame. In any event this is a good place to start if you are venturing into Weens music.
As a side note, I got sick with mono and the whole time I was sick I listened to the song "Mononucleosis" at least once a day, cheered me up even though I felt awful. Thanks Dean & Gene.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought they were for real Sept. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD some time before "Pure Guava" came out. I had no idea they were pulling my leg (although "Pollo Asada" should have clued me in)-- I thought this was some seriously heavy music! "The Pod" is like a little hisory of rock music-- they cover every genre you could think of, but the best tracks are the heavy, disturbing prog-rock ones like "Don't Sweat It" and "Captain Fantasy". Yeah, the production is poor, but this only speaks to their genius; more produced albums like "Chocolate and Cheese," while good and worth owing, cannot top this one. And although in the decade I've owned it, I've had periods when I absolutely cannot listen to it, I'll put it on again, and be reminded this is Ween's magnum opus, and one of the best CDs of all time. I think I'll strap on that ole' jammy pack & put it on right now...

5.0 out of 5 stars the pinnacle of Western civilization? June 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Dostoevsky wrote, "Stupidity is brief and guileless, while reason hedges and hides. Reason is a scoundrel, stupidity is direct and honest." You've never even dreamt of finding such brilliant idiocy as what the brothers Ween have cooked up in the Pod. It's almost like stumbling upon a work of genius created accidentally by a couple of absolute morons in their mom's basement, except the album is just too SMART, for all its glorious, joyful stupidity. This is not what you'd call an easily accessible album, but it rewards repeated listens. Does it ever. We're talking about a comic masterwork, and we're talking about excellent music. Two for the price of one!

5.0 out of 5 stars WEEN'S MASTERPIECE! April 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
You either love then or hate them. There's no secret as to where i stand. The Pod is a musical masterpiece. Gener and Deaner have more talent then most people think, or assume for that matter. This is Ween's best album by far, the rest of them are superb, but The Pod stands alone as Gene and Dean's best work yet. Pollo Asado has to be one of the most brilliant songs ever written. These guys keep you guessing throughout the whole album as to what will they come up with next? Buy it and listen, you can thank me later.
