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 Are you ready for a challenge,Mang...? July 9 2002
By E.
Format:Audio CD
From the parody of Leonard Cohen's Greatest Hits on the album cover to the mentions of scotchguard bongs inside and a quick scanning of the song titles,you know this isn't going to be a simple ride before you even put the record on. Those who have no sense of humor,appreciation for lo-fi music, or sense of adventure need not apply. It also helps out if you have a history of..."mind expansion".This is a twisted and unorthodox tour through Ween's wild days. I like alot of the more "mature" Ween stuff of these recent years but this is the album I enjoy the most. It's so interesting and inspired. Much more so than the normal everyday rock music that it often seeks to mock.
Those who find this album unlistenable are due their fair say but did you notice that none of the people who panned this left a "name"...You can only wonder what music they consider listenable. Oh well... This album has such a runaway vitality to it that the weaker spots (and there are a few) can be easily forgiven. This is a liberated album that goes where it pleases and cares not for your stupid rules. It's happy just being The Pod. It's weirdness and self indulgentness actually work in it's favor.
On one track the Pod can be incoherant,meaningless and noisy and on the next almost beautiful and emotional. Then the next one comes up and rocks you like a hurricane. How...could you not like that??? "Pork Roll,Egg and Cheese" may be my favorite here but it's got 10 more fighting it out for 2nd place. If you are up for the challenge,dig in... Just be prepaired to either hold it close or disown it. I'm convinced that this is a love it or hate it sort of thing. They almost force you to make that choice. But then they just expect everyone to love it anyway...

5.0 out of 5 stars Assigned Work is Late or Incomplete Jan. 18 2002
Format:Audio CD
Letter to the parents:
¡§Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ween, your ¡¥sons¡ have gotten their hands on a budget four track recorder and recorded a series of un-beautiful songs for submission as their final project. The results are not pleasant.
On probation for their previous term project (GodWeenSatan) I warned them to tone it down this time. Well, we seem to have less cussing but no improvement in quality. The cacophony flowing from your two sons¡ guitars is by no means sweet nor melodic; a symphony this aint.
Song themes range from a note to a friend who missed school with mononucleosis, a letter to a ne¡er do well college dropout, Mexican Food, and repeated assertions of their masculinity. And amps turned up to at least eleven.
We all know how much money and effort was spent on the boys music lessons and now they misuse their gift to make an awful racket and sing tales of useless dissipation.
And darn it, this is kind of catchy. I¡ve listened to it a hundred times and it keeps getting better. These boys recycle every music format on the FM dial and I like it. Let me know if I can write them a recommendation letter for college, they¡ll need it after all the school they¡ve missed.
Sincerely,
Principal Stallion¡

4.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be on drugs... Jan. 2 2002
Format:Audio CD
but it shore do help when trying to understand where these two astronauts are coming from. Now, as a fan of weird music, this one went down easy for me. I don't know if it will have the same effect on others(then again, judging by the looks I get when people walk in my room when this is on, I suppose it is challenging listening). Three times the mess that Pure Guava was, in fact, this may have been the original Pangaea of Ween music that Guava was cut from. What we have here is two guys from Pennsylvania getting as high as they possibly can on whatever they can find(the Scotchgard powered bong over Mean Ween's face should give you a clue as to how resourceful they are), turning on a tape recorder, and developing whatever riffs and lyrics they can clutch from their druggy haze. I notice alot theyll take a musical idea from somewhere else, and strip it down and destroy it Ween Style (Captain Fantasy/Mr. Fantasy? Sketches of Winkle/Pictures of Lily?). Other times theyll just be obsessed with a non sequitur and imbue it with some mystical meaning i.e. "Right to the Ways and the Rules of the World", which sounds like it might mean something, but they end up talking about chewing grits(yes, they are that out there)and laughing uncontrollably at the direction that their stoned meanderings are going. Ween knows how to rock punk style, plenty of feedback and cacophony for those that like that, and then there are moments of alt rock awwshucks like "Oh My Dear(Falling in Love)".Theres even themes interwoven into the record-or should I just call them running jokes- paeans to their favorite sandwiches, and proud horses who have mystical powers over the universe.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Ween Album July 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album pretty much defines "challenging listening." None of these songs will ever be singles, none of these songs will ever be heard on "corporate radio." Nevertheless, this eclectic mix holds untold wonders for those willing to tolerate her eccentricities... If you smile at "Strap on that jammypac" then chances are you'll appreciate the rest of the album. The strongest points of the album, I feel, are Sorry Charlie, Right to the ways and the rules of the world (note how they begin laughing before taking themselves too seriously in the track.. that's what makes it for me.), Alone, Pollo Asado (I actually put part of that on my answering machine), Dr. Rock, and pork roll egg and cheese. If you're ready to dispense with your pre-conceived notions about what defines "rock" and "music", then it's time to give this album and this band a shot. Whatever the case, it's a heck of a lot better than the spoon-fed pablum you hear on the corporate stations today.

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. Read more
