Ween - The Mollusk
Ween - The Mollusk (1997)
I have already spoke on the fact that I am in love with Ween. The Mollusk was the first Ween album that I can remember waiting for the release date. I recall calling around to all the local cd shops to see if anyone had this in, only to find it at a Sam Goody of all places. Well 18.99 later I had the new Ween. While they recorded this disc, Ween set up shop in an old mansion on the beach. Halfway through it was flooded out and they moved someplace else. I think some of the water actually ruined a lot of what they had worked on up until that point, so they just started over. That's when the nautical themes came into play. No other band could pull off this type of cd. They try their hand at love ballads, Irish drinking songs, and old sea shanties. They do all of this quite well. This album will deliver you to the bottom of the sea, or perhaps to a bar full of drunken pirates. They are all fun places to be while listening to Ween.
