5.0 out of 5 stars Rock Over London, Rock On Chicago 25 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
For those of you that don't know, Wesley Willis was a schizophrenic street singer who made over 50 albums that consist of his rantings and thoughts over people, place, events and anything he felt he needed to get off his chest. The songs are generally a few staccato rantings that make up the verses followed by a couple of longer repetition of the song title for the chorus and all end with him saying "Rock Over London, Rock On Chicago" followed by an advertising slogan for some product or another. The songs may be formulaic but they are never dull. You never know what he's going to say next.
The greatest thing about his songs is the honesty. You really feel you get an insight into his mind with songs like "Running my Inkpen" and "Harmony Joy Busride." The songs on here that are with the Wesley Willis Fiasco (like The Frogs) don't feel like typical Wesley songs and so break up the album to stop it becoming different.
This is a great album from a great individual who will be sorely missed and in my opinion the best in his Greatest Hits series. My favourite song is Feel The Power Of Rock 'n' Roll with its unusually tuneful chorus and great lyrics. Some people regard this as a comedy record but its not. Wesley Willis was not doing this to make people laugh but because he had to. You will laugh at Wesley's absurd view on things but you can laugh at Wesley Willis or you can laugh with him. I for one choose the latter.
Rock Over London, Rock On Chicago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Die, politcial correctness, die! 17 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I must say that it is grand to know that in a free society, we may give free rein to foul-mouthed tourettes'-sufferers like WESLEY WILLIS by giving him a record contract. The formula for the CD will be quite familiar to fans of his previous work: Copious amounts of swearing, lyrics that don't make any sense ("you are my buddy...you are the greates guy I ever liked....ARNOLD SCHWARTZENEGGAR!!!") and weirdly special FX from what sounds like the cheapest synthesisier in the Radio Shack sale. The saving grace of Willis' work is the pure, unadulterated comedy value. Play tracks like "Cut the Mullet" (a deathknell to big hair) and "Birdman Kicked My Ass" at a party or for friends, and you'll be laughing your royal yin-yins off - GUARANTEED. It's not clever, it's not pretty and it certainly isn't for the kids, but Christ, it's funny. And who knows, his next compilation may just get another mention on the Howard Stern Show...

5.0 out of 5 stars How talented can one man be? 19 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I accidently stumbled across this little gem about a month ago, and my life hasn't been the same since. Wesley expresses basic raw emotion, that most people have bred out of them by society. Wesley says what he wants to say, and doesn't beat around the bush. It made me realize how much I was preventing myself from enjoying by keeping my similar emotions bottled up. Way to go Wesley, keep on playing that rock music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on to your windshields! 15 Jun 2002
By J. Graml - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Man, this stuff rocks. I'd like to shake Uncle Jello's hand for bringing us the musical genius that is Wesley Willis. Spread the Wesley fever; get this CD for your friends and force them to listen to it. They won't be disappointed. Scarred for life, but not disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant! 7 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wesley is at his absolute best and most illuminating on this disc. Not only are the lyrics fun and inspiring, but Wesley's vocal range is much improved over his previous stuff. Sit back, pour yourself a drink and laugh your face off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid 26 Oct 2001
By Kevin Folta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You may laugh at the samples, and wonder about the fact that Wesley Willis gets either one or five stars... Why the love/hate relationship to this music? Bottom line, if you give it a chance it is infectious, like a case of herpes. It drones on in your head and you find yourself siging a rousing chorus of "Oil Express" at the most inappropriate time. For all these reasons I fully endorse the genius of Wesley Willis. He does what all modern rock does, using a repetitive and predictable formula as a basis of the artform. Its magic is in its repetitive simplicity. Plus he's a cool guy, great live too.
