The second outing and first full-length from this Ween offshoot is more of the same blatantly offensive, hard rocking, and uproariously funny metal that the group displayed on their debut EP. Any record that opens with a track including the observation "just because you suck one dick, it doesn't mean you're gay," is obviously not going to appeal to everyone, but those who laugh will continue to chuckle for the extent of the record's ten humorously offensive rockers. Similar in style to Ween's heavy-handed thrashing rock efforts, Moistboyz take dirty guitar solos and dirty lyrics, all of which are combined in tracks that take on hippies, crank, and a general soft spot for sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Easily offended listeners might object to seemingly racist or homophobic views from the Mighty Whitey Lyricist, Dickie Moist, but anyone familiar with Mickey (Melchiondo) Moist's work in Ween should realize that the band is rocking out with their tongues planted firmly in their cheeks. Drunk, high, and obnoxious, Moistboyz don't care if you get their jokes or not. The seemingly dissolved side project served as an outlet for Melchiondo's off-center musical styles, and while the whole record certainly plays like a delusional case of Tourette's set to rock music, those that have followed the chaotic guitarist in the past will probably be able to find a few songs to sing along to at the end of a long night.
