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

5.0 out of 5 stars sentimental review July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I got into Ween back in college, listening to Pure Guava, GodWeenSatan and The Pod with friends. We were repulsed, intrigued, and finally, disciples. It was an great alternate to drugs, or enhancement for some.
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.

A lot of people in music will say they feel like rock has gone as far as it can, and that every note has been played by somebody else. Here is proof that u can take the same chords/vocals and twist them to make it sound like something completely fresh.I just recently got into Ween, and probably wouldn't have understood this back in 92-when it was released.In fact -i hated Push the Little Daisies back when it was on the radio!! (But now LOVE it)For people like me who have fairly normal tastes, but are uninspired by the lack of originality in today's music-THIS IS 4 U. It sounds like a lot was done on the spot-just keep the ideas flowing in completely different directions, but all at the same time.Touch My Tooter sounds like a Jimi Hendrix B-Side.Goin gets Tough from the Getgo-sounds like they're trying to rap-but it works-kinda like the current band the Streets(way before the Streets existed).Think of Primus when u hear Pumpin 4 The Man.They're making fun of the fact that you can't put out a song that sounds like 10CC-and have it accepted by the masses unless you alter it a little(Speaking of which-they're album "White Pepper" seems to be their take on 10CC.)The Mollusk is probably my favorite CD of theirs(especially the song "She Wanted to Leave")-but The Stallion pt3 could possibly be the greatest song ever!!!!Probably the most endearing thing about this band is the decision if they really have musical talent or not-if u decide NO-listen to Spirit of 76(AL GREEN would like this), the entire Mollusk cd or the White Pepper CD.Any of their cd's will renew faith in the power of endless creativity!!! P.S. a fan on the internet did a video for The Mollusk a couple years ago with lego-animation-it is INCREDIBLE

5.0 out of 5 stars this record is my best friend Oct. 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD will be your best friend if you'll let it. Every single song grabs you in one way or another, and keeps you interested. The synth solo at the center of "Tender Situation" puts just the right amount of meat on a very minimalistic piece; "Little Birdy" is an out-of-tune weed/spring/joy anthem that grows on you; "Flies on My D*ck" is their most haunting song ever; "The Going Gets Tough" is a campy riot; "Push th' Little Daisies" is a nifty, infectious little pop song (but a low point on this particular album, IMO); "Poopship Destroyer" sounds like someone taking feEEEcal aim at the Ti-D-Bowl Man. One of their favorite jokes is to put toe-tapping pop next to horrifying noise; here, it works every time.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 rounded up. Aug. 11 2003
By Mike K.
Format:Audio CD
Is this the most moronic album Ween have ever released? Yes. If this is the only Ween music you ever hear, will you write them off as Barnes And Barnes for the "slacker" generation? Probably. Is it fun to listen to anyway? Yes. At best these songs hit upon a maddening but somehow addicting mixture of catchiness, irritating screwed-up-ness, and inexplicable hillarity. At worst, they'll only have the irritating screwed-up-ness. Take "The Stallion Part 3": There is no logical reason that a mock-pretentious prog rock song where the refrain is merely someone announcing "Dude, he's the stallion!" should be funny, but it is. In addition, the winding melody worms its way into your head even as the elfin, almost Jon-Anderson-on-helium vocals agitate your ears. As I've said, if you've never heard a Ween album before, this is probably not the first one to get (GodWeenSatan and Chocolate And Cheese both work better at giving the best overall impressions of their work), but if you're looking for an album that will amuse you and a select group of friends while clearing the room of everyone else, this could be it.
