I like Pure Guava more than The Pod

With the unfortunate exception of "Morning Glory" which I find close to unlistenable. But I think the high points of both are around the same quality and frequency, yet The Pod definitely has more stuff I just don't like listening to very much, especially in the second half. |
Of course, I'm with Dean in saying The Mollusk will probably always be my favorite Ween album. Strangely enough, I'm extremely close to thinking Shinola and 12 Golden Country Greats might be in the running with C&C for my second favorite.
: I must be in the minority concerning Pure
: Guava. I actually like it more than The Pod,
: though honestly each of the first three
: albums is a bit taxing for me to listen to.
: I am surprised that you consider C&C the
: best Ween album, but I guess I shouldn't be.
: I guess I didn't really know you at all.
: I would probably give Quebec the nod, and
: this decision is not based on Mark Prindle's
: recent decision to switch his top Ween album
: from The Mollusk to Quebec--I've like Quebec
: a whole lot for a very long time.
: I'm really enjoying your Ween opinions thus
: far. You always (well, almost always) do a
: terrific job of telling the reader WHY you
: score an album/artist a certain way.
: I'd probably rate Ween's catalog this way

: If you successfully predicted 4-stars for

: "Chocolate and Cheese" and NOT
: "The Mollusk," congrats, you're

: Reader comments won't be up until the

: until then and my head is destroying me.
: Also, to those of you who were visiting the

: hadn't yet linked it from index (and hadn't

: used to peek in your parents' closet and
: look for your Christmas presents.
