Ween The Friends EP (Chocodog CD/MVD)


Sound: B Music: B-



Ween is back and out with a new five-track release simply called The Friends EP. One of the more interesting Rock/Alternative bands around, we have previously covered their solid Shinola: Volume One album and you can read more about it and them at this link:





The tracks here are all very different, but all enjoyable and include:


1)     Friends

2)     I Got To Put The Hammer Down

3)     King Billy

4)     Light Me Up

5)     Slow Down Boy



For such a short work, it is more satisfactory than many full length albums we have had to suffer through lately and shows that this is a band that has neither peaked nor slowed down. The talent is there and this will hopefully be the prelude to another full-length release, yet there are a few songs here that could become hits and it should not be dismissed easily.


The PCM 2.0 16/44.1 Stereo is as good as their older album and in keeping with the kind of character they put into their recordings. A switch to a smaller label has not hurt their sonic senses one bit and serious fans, as well as music fans, should all be very pleased overall.
