  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Recorded live at the Vic Theatre on November 8 and 9, 2003, Ween: Live In Chicago is a great way to aquaint oneself with brothers Gene and Dean Ween and their ecclectic style of alternative rock. Includes the more well-known "Transdermal Celebration" and "Voodoo Lady," but just try and "Don't Laugh" when Ween sings "Touch My Tooter" and "The H.I.V. Song." This DVD is a must-have for Ween fans and those looking for something just a little bit different in their music library. (Suzanne Hodges)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture delivers the concert performance with satisfying visuals, though there are some minor problems. Shimmering details are noticed occasionally, including stairstepping and moir
