Love him or hate him, Wesley Willis is insanely prolific and never fails to give his fans what they've come to expect. With well over 20 releases under his belt in just the last decade, consisting of both self-released tapes and CDs as well material on various major and independent labels, he's gained a wide cult following. Almost his entire catalog of songs follows the same tried-and-true formula of brief spoken verses alternated by the chorus (which is essentially him bellowing the title four times) and all done over the same rhythm track generated by his trusty synthesizer. Wesley ends every song with the same outro ("Rock over London, Rock on Chicago!"), amended with a random advertising slogan ("Walgreens, it's the pharmacy America trusts" or "Dunkin Donuts, it's worth the trip"). Sometimes the tempo will be faster, he may add some reverb to his voice, or even throw in some fake crowd noise, but he rarely strays very far from his template when composing. His songs usually have blunt and often foul-mouthed titles, describing imaginary events or written in tribute to individuals he's met and places he's been. This CD collects 24 tracks culled from 10 of his past hard-to-find releases, chronicling different musical acts that Wesley saw perform in Chicago. He opens each song with a quick review of the event, citing the performance space, a rough estimate of how many folks attended, and his opinion of the show. The concert will be praised with such Wesley-isms as "It really whupped a camel's ass!" or "The crowd roared like a lion!," regardless of whether he's referring to Morbid Angel or Hootie & The Blowfish. Although his sincere odes to rock celebrities are amusing, it doesn't take long for the moment to wear thin.Read more ›

HASH(0x8c0cb5b8) out of 5 stars Thank You Wesley 29 Feb. 2004
By Barry Rothbart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The year was 1997, the month was June, the day was the 12th and on that day I had hit bottom. My wife had left me, my great uncle died and I had been diagnosed with carpel tunnel syndrome. Life was not looking up, until that night, around my friend Boon's mahogany coffee table during our usual thursday night bridge session, when all of a sudden from his foyer, the magical sounds of what seemed like a obese homeless musical artist were being ommitted. I had to investigate. So I went in to the hall where these enchanting and strangely seducing tunes were coming from. And sure enough my instincts were correct. It was an overly obese homeless man who was creating this auditory artwork. Immediately after this experience, my life completely turned around. The next day I met a bolemic french supermodel, my great uncle rose from the grave and my doctor said that not only had he mistakenly diagnosed me with carrpel tunnel syndrome but that I actually have a new release of a certain type of hormone that will never allow me to get sick ever again. So buy Wesley Willis I recommend it.

HASH(0x8c0cb60c) out of 5 stars get in the groove 11 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I heard one reviewer say that this album is the stupidest album he had ever heard and that he did not understand how anyone could waste money buying this CD. The issue is not that it is stupid, the issue is whether or not you will get into the groove of the album and if you enjoy Willis's humor. Despite its repetitiveness, Willis's music is original because of the unique way in which he delivers his songs (Willis is schizophrenic). For those of us who find Willis's music accessible, the simplistically catchy songs and the one-of-a-kind humor that only Willis can deliver blesses the listener with laughter and an enjoyable musical experience.

HASH(0x8c4d3e58) out of 5 stars Hit or Miss 14 Mar. 2000
By Adam M Sparks - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Wesley Willis's music is certainly hit or miss. While few people will accuse him of being musically gifted or creative, everyone will certainly understand the pure genius of his lyrics. He instantly either completely offends or completely endears himself to the listener. I will never forget the first time I heard Mr. Willis's music.
Wesley's insights into the human mind are profound and hillarious at the same time. He is truly a visionary, and his work should be studied for decades.
The experience of listening to Wesley Willis's music is one that everyone should have an opportunity to enjoy. I would suggest that everyone snuggle up with a loved one, pop in this CD, and put it on loop for hours. Your neighbors will love it too!

HASH(0x8c0cb894) out of 5 stars Rock over London! Rock on, Chicago! 28 July 2005
By Johnny Heering - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a compilation album of songs by Wesley Willis that are about rock and rollers. All the songs have a similar pre-programmed backing track, over which Wesley speaks/shouts/sings his repetetive lyrics. This album is even more repetetive than most Wesley Willis albums, since the songs all have a similar subject matter. About two-thirds of the songs here are reviews of concerts that Wesley attended. Wesley will say where the concert was held, how many people attended the concert, and that the concert was "awesome". Apparently, Wesley never went to a bad concert in his life. However, in the song about "Lotion" he does mention that the lead singer was a "stupid jerk" who was "not nice at all". That's the only critical thing he ever says here. There are a few song here that are not concert reviews, where you can learn things like "Kurt Cobain was the singer in Nirvana" and "Jello Biafra used to sing with the Dead Kennedys". And so on and so on. But, if you like Wesley's music, you will enjoy this album.

HASH(0x8c0cba14) out of 5 stars The man is an absolute genius! 1 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Any Wesley Willis cd is a must have for any true cd collector. This particular album represents his true genius at work. He breaks down conventional thinking and throws it right back at you. Just listen to him chant "Nirvana", pure genius. If you are a fan of Wesley, try to find a copy of James B. He is not found in any stores but ask any music buddy you might have because he or she may have one. Another must have.
