Even Prindle didn't review it. Check it out for the future then I suppose. Boredoms are a noise-rock band so there's some fairly abrasive stuff on the album, which when crossed with Ween makes for a curious combination indeed. The first track for instance sounds like a chocolate and cheese song but with Boredoms screaming over top instead of Gener singing. My fav tracks on it are the more Ween-ish ones unsurprisingly (the screaming/noisy stuff isn't terrible but it's not my thing really), and they do turn in a handful of catchy tunes along with the weird stuff. Absolutely the furthest thing from an essential album, but I don't think it should be as forgotten as it is.
Many of their live albums were released after the fact anyway (Painting The Town Brown, Live In Toronto, & Cat's Cradle were all archival live albums), so if you're going chronologically there's not really any need to tackle a bunch of them right away. I think only Stubbs, Chicago & Request were released relatively immediately after the shows. But anyway, Ween's legacy is pretty firmly established with their studio stuff so I've no problem with you skipping a bunch of live ones for now (besides, studio albums make for more substantial reading anyway).
I've never cared much for their really early stuff. They made the right call in leaving most of those recordings in the past. Formative as all get out, and not in an entertaining way for the most part IMO.
