  1. La Cucaracha is still a bit of a disappointment, short on memorable tunes and a bit muddier and more piecemeal than it should be.
  2. Uncut

    'Object' is a highlight, as is the lovely 'Sweetheart In The Summer.' [Dec 2007, p.119]
  3. Here are 13 songs of dire cod-reggae, OK stoner rock and quite-good-'80s AOR, which makes them the thinking man's Tenacious D, for what that's worth.
  4. Spin
    40
    Instead of psychedelic pop or Princely funk, they regurgitate limp fake reggae, crappy country yee-haw, dorky Eurodance, and nasty New Age. [Dec 2007, p.126]

    Not as good as The Friends EP, but still excellent. Wiggles between genres faster than ever, from cheerful disco pop to frantic, over producedNot as good as The Friends EP, but still excellent. Wiggles between genres faster than ever, from cheerful disco pop to frantic, over produced country to corny love songs. The only low point is the annoying 'Blue Balloon', which lags after awhile. Double soaked in island love, with a hint of rock and party fun. One of Ween's best studio album yet, and hopefully it'll only get better. Full Review »
