5.0 out of 5 stars The Daddy Of Rock And Roll 5 Aug 2005
By M. Ward
Format:Audio CD
Most people will have been exposed to the monstrous genius that is ( or was ) Wesley Willis from the first track herein, Rock And Roll Mac Donalds, a health warning if ever there was one.
Typically seen as a comedy novelty of sorts, it can be hard to understand Willis' rantings, but look under the hood of six-key Casios and bestiality, and here is a sensitive intelligent bard of sorts who didn't want to shock, didn't want to make you laugh, he made his records to offend his daemons, to soothe his troubled mind.
Understand what Willis was before passing this off as merely a bit of fun; this man was deadly serious in his views about politics and dogs named Topher Bagley.
Still, every track is fun to listen to and there's an ironic beauty somewhere in the debris.
An inspiration for anybody who has ever suffered as Willis did.

4.0 out of 5 stars rock over london rock on chicago 29 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am writing a review, i was listenin to wesley willis. He makes good music. Mac donalds is a place where they buy food to eat. Wesley willis wrote 300,000 songs, he was on a demon-hell-ride. Rock on bruder. *INSANELY LONG INSTRUMENTAL PART*

I am concluding this review, buy his albums their funny, and seriously catchy, SUCK AN I-BEX's BOOTYHOLE, rock over london rock on chicago. "winnies represent champions"

5.0 out of 5 stars Wesley Willis 17 Oct 2001
By Johny Bottom - Published on Amazon.com

Wesley Willis is hard core
He sings like no one's ever heard
He is a cool dude
I like his music
People get down to his music
Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis
He is from Chicago
So is his cool band
I drive my wife crazy with his music
She does not understand the point of his music
I really dig his choice music
Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis, Wesley Willis
He whooped up on Superman
He tells you to cut your mullet
He don't dig McDonald's
He thinks Oprah is a beautiful flower
Roll over London, Rock on Chicago, Camel - Walk a mile to smoke one

5.0 out of 5 stars This isn't music, but it's unquestionably art. 20 May 2004
By "harmfulwave" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Well, I suppose that, yes, these 3-minute performances are music, but only in the most literal sense. What Wesley Willis brought to us all was not the beauty of a Beethoven symphony, but the beauty of a man willing to share with the world the workings of his innermost mind. Such painful honesty can only be described as courageous, and while his works are amusing and sometimes even insightful when heard one at a time, the true value of Wesley's art can be seen when it is viewed as a whole.
The schizophrenic delusions and his battles with those inner demons, his struggles with his weight problem, his deep love for his friends, his personal opinions - all of these are laid out for the listener in the most intimate way. Yes, the repetitive music is terrible, but that very repetition is descriptive of the way a schizophrenic mind functions. Yes, some of his lyrics are unbelievably vulgar, but even that has a beauty in its honesty; the songs are not meant to shock, but to siphon off some of the darker emotions and thoughts brought about by his mental condition. Some of his musical elements are undecipherable, such as his reasoning behind using a corporate slogan as the outro for each of his tunes. But like any true work of art, that paradox is revealing in terms of what thoughts it evokes in the listener. In particular, I marvel at the pervasiveness of advertising in our culture that in his dozens of albums, Wesley never ran out of so many catch phrases, most of which I already knew.
Wesley's music can be fun, and it can be offensive. It is at one appalling and endearing. But above all, remember that his is not necessarily music to be enjoyed, but art to be experienced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rest in peace, Wesley! Rock on, Chicago! 31 May 2004
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Wesley Willis was a chronic schizophrenic from the streets of Chicago. In addition to being an artist (drawing almost exclusively buses and skyscrapers), he was a self-proclaimed "rock star". Using programmed melodies on a keyboard (all of which sound very similar), he recorded literally hundreds of songs. Almost all of his songs followed a formula of four spoken lines, the title sung four times, four more spoken lines, the title sung four times, four more spoken lines, the title sung four times. Oh, and he would add a tag of "Rock over London! Rock on, Chicago!" and a commercial slogan. While this may sound repetetive, and it is, I find it quite entertaining. It may not be right to laugh at the handicapped, but Wesley's music is very funny to me. This CD is a very well selected sampler of Wesley's music, chosen so that it doesn't get too repetitive, as some of his albums tend to do. It even includes three songs with Wesley singing with a live band, which sounds quite different than his solo work. I highly recommend this CD as the first Wesley Willis CD you should get, if you want to sample his work.
Rock over, London!
Rock on, Chicago!
CD Now! Never miss a beat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wesley's like a fungus... 23 Mar 2002
By "lord_of_the_harvest2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
He grows on you if you give him time. Maybe it's that hypnotic, repetitive electronic backbeat, maybe it's the hypnotic, repetitive lyrics, maybe it's the end result of over 50 years of water fluoridation, I just don't know. What I do know is that Wesley Willis' music is flat-out fun. All you need to do is put on one of his CDs and a magical transformation will occur. Any negative personalities present will leave the room (you will almost certainly have to endure their complaints, but perservere and they will go), and those who remain will have a great time.
If, after listening to a few samples, you're still not sure about plunking down your hard-earned $$$, I suggest starting out with a used CD... Personally, I was lucky enough to have a friend who gave me his copy of "Feel the Power" after his girlfriend ordered it out the door. He has since (and sensibly) left the Philistine. The first time I tried it out, I made it through the first half of the first track before my wife begged me to stop. I could tell right away that this was hot stuff...that either you'll love Wesley or you'll hate him (or rather his music. I hope you wouldn't bear a grudge against him personally). If after listening to the first CD... a few times, you can't stand it anymore, sell it. If instead you want more, no sweat--he's got dozens of CDs out...I suggest "Feel the Power" as a sentimental favorite. It captures the raw, hungry (and boy, do I mean hungry) Wesley, before he got fat. Greatest Hits 1 & 2 are also good. Other than that, check out the track titles for ones that seem interesting. Anything that involves getting whupped or kicked is a good bet...
