Ween - "Live in Chicago" [CD/DVD]
[Sanctuary, www.sanctuaryrecordsgroup.com]

To hear a Ween album is always a blessing, especially if your sense of humour borders on the bizarre and the quirky. [If you don't have a sense of humour, you shouldn't be listening to Ween anyhow]. The Ween brothers have been spinning their quirky brand of humour layered into rock formula for more than 15 years. Truth is I can't believe this is only their first DVD! It's high time someone captured the high energy levels of their concerts. DVD included with this CD/DVD package is full 9 tracks longer then the audio CD. Picture is clear and the director never tries to be too arty with his work. A bonus animated music video is included for good measure. As for the CD itself, this is one wild ride you won't regret taking. What I love about this band the most I suppose is how easily they can go from off-the-wall hummable rock form of "Roses are Free", right into a spooky ballad such as "Mutilated Lips". They do this with such ease; it's almost as if they were born to be rock stars. Even instrumental "Zoloft" comes across very genuine. Sure, the boys can have their fun at the expense of just about everyone, but that doesn't mean the music suffers in the process. In fact, the two shows from which the concert CD was culled from sound exceptionally well. The band is tight, the vocals are loud, the mix is clean and the audience sounds highly appreciative. What other motivation do you need to pick up this release? Howdy cowboy, the music is spankin' fresh and waitin' for ya!
