to write a review

hiro ueno

I believe what should be called 'music' or 'art' has to be something that widens your infinite imagination. What the popular music has been doing in the last 6 or 7 decades is to have made our such 'infinite' imagination something 'definite' and boring.

This "Unacceptable Vegetable" by Voluntary Mother Earth reminds of rock'n'roll music's limitless capability of awakening our imagination.

Starting with 'Give us a Tomato', the album slowly celebrates its beginning by ringing its bell for the magic show that will last another fifty minutes. It makes you realize that what you believe is just another tomato or potato on discount at the nearest supermarket.

'Free Head for a Free Ride' just makes you swing right to left, left to the right, as though your eyes were zoning out to the imaginary light in the sky as Buddha might have seen. This track should urge you to wanna check out "You're Mother is Only a Voluntary Mother' from their previous album. If you got parents who raised you well, thank them more than anybody else.

This vegetable was acceptable
I've been listening to VME for a few years now, so it was excellent hearing some of their classic tunes fleshed out in a full on balls-to-the-wall studio recording. There are very few albums that that rock your sphincter halfway out, only to toss in a line that will put you in peals of laughter. Unacceptable Vegetable is one of them.


Involuntary Enjoyment
How does one describe VME and their latest dish? Each song is packed full of flavor crystals and just when you think you've got a song fully digested... BAM! More flavor for your ears! VME focus' on the core things we all need: food, reproduction and blenders. If you want a fun ride chock full of musical goodness, get Unacceptable Vegetable now. You will not regret it. It's like Pop Rocks for your ears.

The albums starts out with "Give Us A Tomato" which is a great anthem setting the tone for the entire meal. "Free Head For A Free Ride" is a great jam for any sandwich. The Sprite song then quenches your thirst in another wonderful anthem. "Valley Girl..." is perhaps one of the best love songs I've heard in quite awhile, definitely wedding material. This is followed up with "Jeremy Thorn 2007" which is one of the more crushing jams on the album. But don't think it's an easy ride, it's like riding with a Kennedy after happy hour. "Starving Musician" is by far the most gear changing trip your ears will enjoy.

I don't smoke pot but if I did "Makes Me Wonder" would be the song I'd be listening to with every puff. I can't recall another song that takes me on such a deep voyage. You'll want to hear this song over and over, enjoying each trip. The album finishes with 2 Penis songs. The first "Forgive My Penis", is a definitely a song from the heart. I actually found myself singing this at work. "...And You Got My Penis Hurt" takes you deeper than you thought you could go. This song rips at your soul as it pours itself into your ears. A great song to finish up a great album.

You need to involuntarily buy this album. A great spice in a sometimes bland world.
