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¡¨

There are so many reasons to hate this record. I heard it back in my late teens, even while in the state that one is "supposed" to be in when listening to it, and all of those reasons were apparent. The production quality is awful, there is an omnipresent hiss going on, the drum beats are casio-esque, the solos are generally off key, the lyrics are nearly impossible to make out without looking them up, and the songwriting is totally unfocused and comes off amateurish. Playing this for most people, whether they are casual music listeners or "technical" music listeners (more on that later), will probably make them wonder why they ever associate with you.

The obvious question then: why do people love this album so much??? How can so many reviews contain the word "unlistenable" yet give the record five stars and praise its genius? The answer is complicated, but it is also the key to liking (and probably obsessing over) this record. I guess the best way to explain it is that this album successfully manages to use its limitations to be its strongpoints. By not restricting themselves to conventional song structures and leaving all of the imperfections in the record, you don't get the feeling at all that what you're hearing has been filtered through a studio and record execs. Because of that, it really feels like you were right there with them when they were recording this - it's like the anti-rock star music. Most contrived music these days attempts to make it sound like the singer is singing "from another world" - this stuff sounds like Geaner and Deaner are huffing glue with you in your den.

So the personal nature of the album is all well and good, but I've heard plenty of awful demos without mastering and they certainly weren't worthy of cult status. What sets this apart?

The day I bought this CD I hated it, with a passion. I thought it was just 2 college guys who wanted to see what it would sound like if they turned on a recorder & got more and more stoned till they passed out. But I kept listening to it (being the brainless Ween fan that I am), and now it's my favorite Ween album & one of my favorite albums ever. It's really not a listenable record, but these guys do have a ton of talent. If you look beyond all the slow tempos and the lo-fi recording, there are damn good songs here, & the variety is mind-blowing. There isn't a single song on this album that sounds like another song. Moreover, there isn't a single song on this album that sounds like it was sung by the same person. One flaw: every single guitar solo on this record is God awful. But usually it's used to really funny effect (like 'Sorry, Charlie': for a few bars it sounds like someone stoned out of his mind is doing a solo & just trying desperately to stay in the same key, then he screws it up & goes off-key), which brings me to the great sense of humor these 2 guys have. 'Pollo Asado' has to be the funniest song I've ever heard in my life, except for maybe 'Fish Heads.' It became the official song of my high school Spanish class. Some of the tracks here are very catchy ('Sketches of Winkle,' 'Captain Fantasy,' 'Dr. Rock,' 'Pork roll egg and cheese'), some are just weird ('Strap on that jimmy pac,' 'Laura,' 'Mononucleosis'), some even scare me ('Molly,' 'The Stallion pt 1'). Just buy the album.

If you ever listened to their later albums (c & c, mollusk, white pepper, quebec and most recently shinola) and wondered, how do these guys come up with stuff so cool and original while maintaining such high musical quality? Your questions will be answered when venturing a listen to The Pod. God Ween Satan was kind of the first discovery of brown and boognish (two words any ween afficionado should become familiar with immediately) and is a mad cap romp through the new world.

The Pod is the mastering of this world, and the establishment of a musical expression that is unparalleled in its uniqueness. The Pod is the reason why Ween fans are so anal about other alleged Ween fans. It's like an unadulterated look into the eyes of the boognish, and look that none of us could have uncovered on our own. Ween gets inside you if you get this album, and you feel happier and weirder for it. If you don't get The Pod, you do not get Ween. And that's the bottom line.

To get away from all this philosophical bulls***, this is an unparalleled sing a long album. Go ahead, get in the car, or gather your friends around the stereo at home. Scream "Dr. Rock" . Wail "right to the ways and the rules of the world." Feel on top of the world as "The Stallion." Feel the fuzzy glow of "she ... me." Better yet, go see Ween live. They are kings on stage. Kings among men.
