Ween – Mutilated Lips [1997]


retro_turntable_speckcase-p176835142239651308en7rr_216What a great year for music 1997 was. Besides Yo La Tengo’s masterpiece posted earlier, Radiohead and Daft Punk both released history defining moments. Not to forget other great works by The Chemical Borthes, The Verve, Depeche Mode, Björk and countless others. But one that’s often forgotten is Ween’s neo-psychedelic experimental-rock piece, The Mollusk. The record has on several occasions been compared to The Beatle’s White Album –  a fitting comparison in many ways since both albums took all sorts of ideas and turned it on its ear. I’ve had a hard time picking a stand-out track, there are at least a handful of them, but “Mutilated Lips” is as stunning and silly as it gets – a perfect summary of the record.
