Album number nine from Dean and Gene Ween, who know no stylistic bounds
Mickey Melchiondo and Aaron Freeman (as their mothers know them) might be fathers now but changing nappies hasn’t cramped their cranked and crazed style. Kicking off with a typical slab of vile death metal, “It’s Gonna Be A Long Night”, the prodigiously gifted twosome funk and trip through “Among His Tribe” and the majestic “Happy Colored Marbles”, and also tip a hat back south for “Alcan Road”?reminiscent of ’94’s Chocolate & Cheese?and the pop warp of “If You Could Save Yourself (You’d Save Us All)”. With Ween, nothing is done by halves. God save ’em.
