This amazing and amusing album was recorded in country territory with the help of genuine country musicians. Great tunes and authentic playing make for an enjoyable listening experience, until one listens closely to the lyrics. Well, the words might put some people off but I found this marriage if the country ethos with post-modern crudeness and explicit expression quite different and refreshing. My favourites are the moving and hilarious I'm Holding You and the politically incorrect Mr Richard Smoker. The lyrics are impressively clever and witty despite their obvious vulgarity and the melodies very catchy and hummable. I'm not sure traditional country fans will like this, but I think it is original and hilarious at times. Ween are the masters of many styles and did a splendid job with this country excursion.

This is the Ween album that is so radical that even Ween devotees have trouble with it, which in itself shows them at their peak when such an album works as brilliantly as this. Apart from the dully lowest-common-denominator-pleasing Mr Richard Smoker, the big misstep on the album, every song is absolutely spot-on as country songs. The Ween wordplay is at another peak. No Ween album was as good as this again.
