i must agree that buying this album is a waste of money, don't get me wrong cause i love FIF boogaloo and end is near kicked butt, however this cd had 0 musical value and i didn't even think it was that funny, honestly if me and my friends locked ourselves in a basement and made 35 tracks we could have done better overnight, more music more funny. if u still want this cd i'd be happy to send it to you for free.

I get to be first! (Perk of the job). Solid 8. Very funny, but I don't think it will really see all that much play time in my CD player. I love it, but not in the same way that I love their other CDs.

It doesn't say it for the same reason that bS2's "The Light of Things Hoped For" was edited. "Christian" music industry politics.

I assume your talking about the part of the album where it says "When you hear this song I hope it hurts [B]like h8ll[/B] " (bold words are bleeped out by the turn-tables)

Anyways, "Cheeses" it a great cd. Some of the songs are hilarious and it was cool to hear some of the earlier versions of their songs (old west, cool enough, ect.) and the original words to Ugly Day. Plus Kamikazee is a great "real" song. My only regret is that I wish some of the songs were longer. If they could've wrote another verse or so for some of the songs, it would've made the album better.

Anyhoo, I loved the cd and think it's great, especially with it being the next-to-last cd FIF is ever putting out.

Do NOT get this. Ya this was like the worst cd I've ever gotten....pretty stupid. I'm assumming you have to be a die heart five iron fan in order to appreciate it. But if i had my chance again i wouldnt of wasted my money on it.

Posted on 05-26-2003 by gibsongirl413

All you have to be is to like funny stuff like the tracks on Cheeses.

I like Five Iron Frenzy..

But the name of the CD is blasphemous. Its taking the Saviours Mighty Name and dragging it through the mud. This is not how I want my Saviours name to be used...

Acts 3:6

Then Peter said, "Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk."

I think this is akin to taking the name of the Lord in vain. Would you buy a CD that was titled "Goddammit" even if it WAS by a Christian artist?

FIF just went down a notch in my books...

Posted on 06-10-2003 by Art
:rolleyes:

The name of the album is a comment on the state of the church.

Posted on 06-10-2003 by gibsongirl413
dude! did u read what FIF said about the title in the lil cd booklet??? and i quote:
[QUOTE]"The title Cheeses of Nazareth, is by no means intended to be sacrilegious. It is intened to be comical, and we chose the name not to satirize Christ, but Christian culture in America. Although many of the songs on this album seem to lack in Christian content, we hope that our lives reflect the love of Christ Jesus and the changes that He has made within us. If you were expecting a sermon, I would like to suggest attending any weekly church service at any of the millions of churches worldwide. They are usually free."[/QUOTE] -FIF

I don't know about this cd. I was really excited when I bought it. I absolutely LOVED Electric Bogoloo. I was disappointed. Except for the Fistful of Sand "freestyle" and a few other tracks I really didn't find this cd that funny. It was definately an intersting cd, but it seemed to me this cd was a little throw together. There are some really bonus tracks from previous albums they could have put in. And I know someone will say "well that would be repetitive", but I think the album could have used those few songs (Kingdom of the Dinosaurs, maybe some stuuf from the live album). Anyway, a good attempt from FIF, but I was a little disappointed. Never the less, we should all see them with Holland and Bleach on the Winners Never Quit Tour! I'll see them with Blindside and many other bands at Purple Door!

Posted on 06-15-2003 by Art
A good attempt? It was mostly b side tracks.

Posted on 06-16-2003 by Sean
Exactly

I heard random tracks from it this past week while on a retreat. I thoughly enjoyed the songs I heard from it. I can't say which songs they were though. One of them was a really cool song, but it was less than a minute long.

Posted on 06-18-2003 by MusicLover1
IMO, i think this cd sucked. I mean there was like 3 real songs on it. And they sucked too, only half decent song was the first one. It was a total waste of cash, i wish i didnt buy it.

Posted on 07-01-2004 by fudrudler
For serious FIF fans only. Funny, but not a cd you will listen to very often.

Posted on 07-02-2003 by Asax217
OH MY GOSH, THIS CD IS HILARIOUS. It wouldn't be a good first Cd to buy. It is very weird. Gotta love Abe Lincoln's beard.
Very funny but crazy Cd

Posted on 07-06-2003 by Unregisted
no offense to anyone who actually liked this cd...but i think it SUCKED. it is really boring and doesnt even have a "foot tapping" effect to it. anyone who doesnt already have it...dont buy it. unless you dont mind blowing almost $20 on it.

Posted on 07-07-2003 by Art
$20? You overpaid. ANd if you are a five iron frenzy fan, don't listen to those who aren't, and bought it anyhow. No offense, RK, but you opinion doesn't mean that nobody should buy it.

Posted on 07-08-2003 by Unregisted
no but anyone who likes cd's for there instrumental stand point will most likely NOT like/enjoy this cd because it doesnt have much beat to it, and most of the songs sound practically the same other than the fact that they may have changed the chord progression here or there.

Posted on 07-09-2003 by Art
Dude... this is not a CD that is about the music. If you want a MUSICALLY GOOD Five Iron CD, get The End is Near. Cheeses was released for the fans... b sides and funny stuff. That's all it was ever supposed to be. ANd BTW, Kamakaze is a GREAT song.

Posted on 07-09-2003 by Unregisted
nah i dont feel like wasting more money off of the suggestion of a guy that needs to chill a little bit... & BTW if was meant only for fans then why didnt they make it only available to their fan club??? or put a big sticker on it that says, "INTENDED ONLY FOR DIE HARD FANS!"? so instead of taking up your offer on FIF...i think i'll save up for Ace Troubleshooter & Sanctus Real (if that is ok with you)

[QUOTE=RK Rules]BTW if was meant only for fans then why didnt they make it only available to their fan club??? or put a big sticker on it that says, "INTENDED ONLY FOR DIE HARD FANS!"?[/QUOTE]

What fan club? Are you talking about frenzyboard.com? And WHY ON EARTH would they put a sticker like that on it?! There are some people out there who don't like (or haven't heard of) FIF who appreciate this kind of humor. Except you don't. Which I don't get because you like RK.

~Jon

Posted on 07-10-2003 by Art
Well, mine came with a sticker that said, "B Sides and Funny Tracks". Plus, I look into CDs before I buy them.

*Edit- RK, I'm sorry if I came off as a jerk. I'm a bit frustrated at the lack of understanding for this album. I mean... you can't blame the band for you not researching an album before you bought it. And seriously, if you like the MUSICAL qualities of FIF, The End Is Near is an awesome CD. Again, I appologise if I sounded like a jerk.

Posted on 07-10-2004 by Unregisted
This cd is without a doubt one of the funniest cds I have ever heard in my life. by a you will laugh till you die over this cd. I heard it almost a year ago for the first time and i still haven't gotten tired of it.

Posted on 07-11-2003 by Unregisted
its ok Art...i am sorry too...i was just kinda ticked that the cd wasnt what i expected...it doesnt make it a bad cd it just means that some people would like it and some dont...i am one of those who doesnt. but that doesnt mean that no one else cant enjoy it...so i guess if you like humor then maybe you would like this cd. again i apologize, Art.

Posted on 07-14-2004 by OneWithTheMud
I have it. I like it. I wasn't a big FIF fan when I bought it and I'm still not, but I think it's funny, a good investment, and a great CD to listen to when you're in the right mood.

Posted on 07-15-2004 by twins_fan
I just bought this CD and I am a hardcore FIF fan. I think it's funny. I appreciate the real songs and hearing Reese forget all the words to Fist Full of Sand. Rhubarb Pie is good, Kamikazee is great, and, personally, I really like Marty. I think that song has a good message; there are many people who live the lifestyle of a non-conformist and all they are doing is conforming to a different set of rules.

That said, if you do not find things such as Kitty Doggy and The Rock Opera funny, you should probably go buy The End is Here instead, because that is an amazing disc. I don't think I'm going to vote on Cheeses. I wouldn't know what to give it and since it's mostly just FIF making fun of themselves, it's hard to compare it to anything. It's not up there with their other discs, but I don't think it was meant to be.

im a huge fan of them and i have this CD. i absolutely love it... very funny.

Posted on 07-27-2003 by Mr.Zachcore
WHOOOOO HOOO! i love this cd, it makes me giggle! Praise the Lord and the abraham Lincoln Beard movements are spectacular. i enjoy rhubarb pie a ton......

and i am not gonna say anything to the poeple who didnt like the cd, they shouldve researched the CD before the bought it. nuff said this gets a 9

like it ___ funny ___comical ____amusing
i personally think it is great

Posted on 08-22-2006 by dogfood
they have even got a song called 'dogfood'.
how awesome is that?

Posted on 08-22-2006 by mtlmouth
"Marty" is pretty much my favorite Five Iron song right now.

Posted on 08-24-2006 by sKaRoCkS
I don't like all of the short 30sec goofs.
Only the first 11 tracks are really songs.
And I can't believe that FIF would really do a 'song' like Thea and the Singing...
It's not funny.

But!

I tabbed it.

Check out the 'Thea and the Singing Telegram' TAB.

Also, the recording quality is very very poor.


Sorry Five Iron, I am a huge Fan, but not for this CD.

Posted on 09-07-2004 by Elms
Hmmm......waht a CD. I love Kamikaze (the only real song). I wish i did NOT spend $13 on it. It's worth more like $4. The End Is Near is much better.

Posted on 09-10-2005 by Andrew
Awesome album. While I still feel a little cheated that it isn't a "real" album, it's funny for a listen every now and then. Just not something you listen to over and over.

Comedic merit = 9
Album = 6

Posted on 10-03-2003 by punker15
yeah..this was a major dissapointment. it starts out great with songs such as kamikaze, rhubarb pie, and cool enough for you but the it nose dives as it moves on to the side-b tracks. some of the stuff isn't even that funny. albums such as "our newest album ever" totally blow this one away. this album kinda lost the happy ska sound. i gave it an 8

Don't ever judge this album musically. You'll be greatly dissapointed.

oh dear.. I absolutely LOVE this CD! It's sooo funny!
I think my favourite song is Thea and the Singing Telegram... because when my sister and I get crazy... and there's music.. we can sound very similar to that! haha, oh, it's soo much fun!
I've been listening to it more and more these days, just cause it's so dang funny ^^
kudos!
