Movie Reviews

There is no way I can go lower than 5 stars..........

"Ween's "Live in Chicago" provides an amazing glimpse into the Ween phenomenon. This is a band that many have written off as being simply too goofy to be taken seriously. Their career has spanned many years, and the critics haven't been kind for most of it. The fact is though, Ween is a great band.....and this DVD is a prime example of that.

Set at Chicago's Vic Theatre, Ween takes the stage and proceeds to kick your ass. The songlist is very diverse....bridging that long career....and showing off the band's range of styles. Ween can be very melodic, and many of the songs on "Live in Chicago" show their outstanding songwriting ability. Standouts include: "Buckingham Green", "Take Me Away", "Transdermal Celebration", "Voodoo Lady", "Roses are Free", "Mutilated Lips", "Zoloft", and "Big Jilm". Hell, every song is solid.

The best part about this DVD is the sound. The 5.1 mix is crystal clear, and the camera angles are perfect. Many concert DVD producers haven't quite figured the editing formula out yet, but this DVD has great cuts.

Ween has done themselves a favor by releasing this DVD. I think many people will be converted fans after viewing "Live in Chicago.""

"This DVD is mind blowing! The track list is a solid representation of the band and each song is performed to perfection. The live cd is also a great addition to any Ween collection and the cartoon video to Transdermal Celebration is absolutely amazing. Ween is easily the most brilliant band around today taht no one knows about. I won't be able to die a happy man until i see a WEen concert. You should make it a priority for yourself too. You won't be disappointed."
Forget going to a stadium...go see Ween!

"Hands down, there is no better live act in rock today than Ween. I cannot get enough of seeing these guys live. While there's no substitute for seeing them in person, this will at least keep you satisfied until you can get your next fix of Ween."

"Concert movies tend to suck, the very fact that it's recorded and you're watching it in your living room breaks with what's happening, and they tend to end up feeling "guh." You can't feel the energy in the room, you can't look where you would normally look (take a glance at a person around you and you can see how they react) so all of that "ambience" is lost.

I used to do the ween website before they did their own, so I'm biased here, but Ween is such a great live band and it totally shows on this DVD. Their craftsmanship is top notch.

I would agree with the other reviewer about the energy level and level of showmanship being lower than a typical ween show, I think the fact that the cameras were present has a lot to do with that."
