Pure guano will be the reaction of most, but there's a certain primative charm about the straight-to-tape musings of these whacked-out dilettantes with a drum machine. --Jeff Bateman

Pure Guava is the last album from Dean and Gene that feels like the essence of an altered state of mind, a kind of inside joke genius between friends.
When Chocolate and Cheese came out, and everything else since, I've been put off by the cleanness of production. It's been different kind of "brown". While the boys have always "aimed to quease", from Chocolate and Cheese on, the queasiness has been more from relation to parody of commercial music than the more elemental queasiness of the first three albums. Not to say the follow-ups aren't great albums, I've even gotten to like the country one. It's just a different kind of music with different strengths.
Pure Guava stars Ween's screwy drum machine more than in previous albums, and focuses more around experimenting around the beats. It reminds me of Hal in 2001 as his circuits begin to fry. If Hal was a musical genius, he might have written Poopship Destroyer in his last dying moments.
Listen to Mourning Glory a few times even though it is difficult. What is intelligible is really funny. Stallion part three is my favorite Ween song. Even my wife likes Big Jilm.
So take a ride on the poopship! If the Devil has a sense of humor, buying this album could be your best way of getting used to it.
This record is lo-fi like their first two, but less thrashy and sprawling (refering to GodWeenSatan and The Pod, respectively), more sharp and introspective (at least it sounds introspective, while it laughs at you). A transition. More spontaneous than the subsequent country album and "Chocolate and Cheese" and more promising than all that preceded it. In my opinion.
I bought all of Ween's records after Quebec was released, and I can honestly say that this was the only one I thought was fun from beginning to end on the first listen.

Okay, so I thought I was a major Ween fan, but after reading the reviews of this album (all great) and then listening to it, I guess I'm a little more "white bread conservative"... Read morePublished on Dec 12 2010 by Stacy Donald
if you ever trip, this album will make you trip 10 times harder because it is so screwed up. If you don't believe me, try it.Published on July 9 2004 by doug

My second Ween album - I'm still working on it (or shall I say, allowing it to work on me?). Regardless, it's fonkin' good music. Weird, but worth every penny in the end. Read morePublished on Aug. 15 2003 by J.A. Jackson
Ween's clever smirking artyness sounds considerably less innovative and cerebral in large doses. This is the album that contains the alt hit 'Pushin Up The Daisies', which suffers... Read morePublished on April 14 2003 by The Orange Duke
