Leonard Cohen fan review of The Pod


Recommended Posts

It finally dawned on me that Ween's The Pod album cover is a spoof of Leonard Cohen's Greatest Hits (with Mean Ween replacing Leonard and the cribbler on his face). Found this article.

I cannot place the music, it seems rather disharmonic to me. No connection to Cohen that I can see - other than being the exact opposite of the atmosphere, with kind of a dark quality, stressed by repetitiveness, disharmony, slowgoing syncopated rhythm and abuse of sound-distortions (changes of pitch, filters, overstressed bass drum) plus the occasional rocky guitar or bass. Sounds anywhere between a sound-check of the Sparks and jam-session rock in a badly supervised summer-camp for Alice Cooper fans.
