Editorial Reviews

Ween is often dismissed as a novelty band, but those who stoop to such judgments should check out this shaggy document of Gene and Dean bringing it to the people. Paintin' the Town Brown captures the brothers Ween in their early days playing to DAT accompaniment through their full band stints. The strongest cuts on this release come from their 1996 country tour; backed by a crackerjack band of Nashville studio legends, Ween saddles traditional honky-tonk with politically incorrect lyrics and the whole package seems to make a lot of sense. Longtime fans will be thrilled at the inclusion of obscure Ween cuts like "Mountain Dew," "Vallejo," and "Ode to Rene." Casual fans will have a hard time with disc two, a spotlight on Ween's overindulgent Boredoms-like jams. Still, it's hard not to admire a band that tackles French cabaret music, Middle Eastern drones, funk, punk, and demented children's music. --Jason Josephes

5.0 out of 5 stars If you don't know WEEN, you ain't brown... January 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Lets face it -- if this album is your first exposure to Dean & Gene Ween's music, your response will probably range from mild annoyance to outright cringing. But for us Ween officianados, and especially for those who have been fortunate to be blessed with a 4-hour live show or two, this album is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Early super-sloppy inclusions such as "Mushroom Festival in Hell" and "Mountain Dew" demonstrates the band's remarkable ability to really rock without really worrying about how they sound (you'll see what I mean). But before you dismiss them as just another over-indulging garage band, check out the hard-as-rock licks by Deaner in "Awesome Sound" or Gener's soaring vocals in "Can't Put My Finger On It" or Claude Coleman's other-worldly drum solo in "Vallejo". Ween rules. God bless the Boognish.

5.0 out of 5 stars an awesome sound going down... September 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Not for the sonically squeamish. Parts of this album are so sick you can't even believe it. Gene implores Deaner not to hurt 'em, but he just doesn't listen! Buy this now and look forward to hours and hours of Boognish-bliss...

4.0 out of 5 stars one star off because.. November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i swear i have bootlegs that are longer and better than this, but you have to love it since ween lovingly handpicked the songs themselves. the 26 minute poopship is a masterpiece, and i wish they had the hour long vallejo on another disc making it three but this is just fine. for a live album, ween has so many great live shows and some very old funny ones back in the days when 23 to 12 people were at a live concert, most were held in parking lots, they should have put out a 5 or 6 disc boxset, including all the old concerts, some more nashville material and all the funny stuff. but this is fine, get it or die!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great live CD by the best performers, WEEN! June 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD was is so great. Every song is great and has a great beat. I love how they did some of the songs differently like "I Can't Put My Finger On It" where they sang it in an arabic accent. All in all, this CD was the best and was great idea by Ween to have this live album made.

4.0 out of 5 stars this is our best gig ever... October 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Then what happens, there is a mix up and then you hear "I knew you'd f* it up". Ween is one of my favorites. I really like disc one. i am not a big fan of the long "phish-like" jam sessions, therefore the four star rating. As others have written a 3 or 4 disc set would have been way cool since there is a lot of material they can choose from as the ween internet radio proves. favorites:

1. bumblebee what a great guitar and its a stich how quiet the audience is.

2. doctor rock- this is a given.

3. awesome sound- great guitar again.

4. mountain dew- pretty funny how they play with the sound on this one.

5. richard smoker is great recording is real clean.

6. mister would you please help my pony?- always a crowd pleaser.

It was this record when i first got it in early 2000 that i realized what a great guitar player dean is. If you like this record the live at stubbs is really good too, plus its 3 cds.

5.0 out of 5 stars a cool album... BY WEEN!! June 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is so awesome. The bits where Ween talk about the songs are so funny... those guys are so bizarre, and insanely immature, and hilarious, and awesome. The songs with the Nashville Boys are standouts, but also earlier songs like "Doctor Rock", "Vallejo", "Mister Could You Please Help My Pony", "She ****'s Me", and the greatest acheivement ever recorded on tape- a blazing 20-something minute version of "Poopship Destroyer"... what else do you expect from Ween. One thing I wonder about is why didn't they put any live vesions of the songs from "The Mollusk" (my favorite Ween album) on it. Oh well, this album is still one strangely rocking live document to one of this country's best, and most duos, Ween. (The liner notes are hilarious... I just thought you might like to know)

WEENs live stuff is very inventive and creative. It is too bad that their live stuff is out of print ( Stubbs!) The Chicago DVD shows what they are capable of. Read more
