Editorial Reviews

How does one encapsulate the mischievous musical conceits of Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, aka Gene and Dean Ween? Infinitely less self-conscious than the smirky They Might Be Giants, yet possessed of a downright Zappa-esque sense of the perverse, Ween returns here from the problematic, if illusory, mainstreaming that characterized 2000's White Pepper to embrace an artistic tack that seems as focused as an errant cluster bomb. While eclecticism for its own sake has often yielded painful self-indulgence, G&D's is sublime enough to seem virtually pre-conscious. The white-trash thrash of "It's Gonna Be a Long Night" dispenses with the expected parody quotient early on, shrewdly clearing the stage for moody doses of psychedelia that are variously driving ("Transdermal Celebration"), dirgy ("Among His Tribe"), and languorously eerie ("Captain"). But, perhaps conscious of reputations to be maintained, those dreamy, chem-friendly spells are variously broken by the perfect '70s country-pop of "Chocolate Town," the pocket epic "The Argus," and tracks that somehow recall both Captain Beefheart and their own haphazard side-career scoring cartoons and other TV fare. There's something here for everyone, to be sure--but closer to Ween's antic hearts, something to annoy everyone as well. --Jerry McCulley

I had no idea what to expect from "Quebec". I'd been hearing about it for months, and after the very pop-rockish and suprisingly commercially-accesible "White Pepper", I didn't know where the boys were going to take us now. "Quebec" seems to be along the same vein as "Chocolate and Cheese", a collection of category-defying songs that shouldn't all work together, yet do. Ween's respect for other bands shines thru on many tracks <the album starts off sounding like Motorhead and ends with something that could have been on Pink Floyd's "Meddle" if Roger Waters had decided to show a little more gusto> while still reminding us of why a Ween Album is an experience all it's own. "Zoloft" is an absolutely brilliant track, at first seeming like a sugar-coated piece of elevator music, with Gene's voice calmly lulling the listener... but like the Zoloft user, the listener's bliss becomes slightly disturbed by an almost drowned-out voice begging you to be true to your own mind and soul. Ween takes several other dark steps with the lost-at-sea wailings of "Captain" and the introverted city dweller's nightmare that is "So Many People in the Neighborhood", which I would say is one of Ween's best layered and chaotically-fueled songs to date. But the album manages a beautiful balance of moods and rhythms, with songs like "Transdermal Celebration" being certain to become powerful and driving live favorites. Ween has given the faithful fans something truely wonderful to sink their teeth into for years to come.

"Quebec" is definitely the strangest and weirdest album since their critically acclaimed "Chocolate & Cheese" from 1994. Since then, they've completed other albums that all add to the sound of "Quebec". "Chocolate & Cheese" had the perfect blend of strange-to-progressive rock that they've ever released. 1996's "12 Golden Country Greats", their comical, yet great country album found them exploring unique areas of their talent. 1997's "The Mollusk" was a phenomenal concept album, sprawling their progressive rock roots. 2000's "White Pepper" is their most "mainstream" album to date, still doing it better than most bands in the mainstream. "Quebec" shows that Ween can take it back to that weirdness that made "Chocolate & Cheese" so great, and mix it with their uncanny sense of progressive rock that they've been perfecting over the years, making "Quebec" a real treat for long time Ween fans, and something easier to swallow for first time listeners.

Musically, "Quebec" is all over the map. Not only does it posses the same feeling as "Pure Guava" and other Ween albums, it also has the cleanest production of any Ween album yet. The opening Motörhead inspired "It's Gonna Be a Long Night" kicks off the album with a bang. "Zoloft" should be used in commercial for the drug. "Transdermal Celebration", reminiscent of "White Pepper", and the only radio single I've heard off the album, works very well. Long time Ween fans will love "So Many People in the Neighborhood", as it is very reminiscent of "The Pod". "Tried and True" is a beautiful slow rocker.

Through space at 1.2 light years per hour, Ween's eighth piece of incredible studio work, quebec, is not only their best yet, but one the 2003's greatest releases.

The record is brimming with genuine emotion, beautiful and complex imagery and music, and lyrics that are at once passive and fire-breathing. quebec is like tossing David Bowie, Motorhead, Les Paul and lots of Pink Floyd into a blender and pushing the 'kill' button.

Aaron Freeman's (Gene Ween) unique and beautiful vocals backed by the intricate guitar work of Mickey Melchiondo (Dean Ween), sends an energetic flare clean through your speakers, hurtling into the room around you and charging the air with static electricity. When Freeman sings, "Jets flew in formation / I could see them /

Dropping the crustaceans / Leaving trails of flames in their wake," you believe him.

Ween only seem to get better as time progresses. If they can ever top this record, they'll have established themselves as one of the most outstanding rock bands the world has yet to offer. If not, they still came out of the deal with one album of unadulterated genius. Time will tell.

This, by far, is the mellowest Ween album ever. It lacks the harsh intensity of, say, God Ween Satan, or Pure Guava. But it's beautiful. Listening to this, a bizarre movie, about two guys finding their way in life, Ween the soundtrack to their adventures comes to mind. The opening, rockin' "It's gonna be a long night" clears the palate of bad top 40 that seeps into your brain whenever venturing out into public places, making way for the chilling "Zoloft". "Transdermal Celebration", "Among his Tribe" are instant favorites, and "So many people in the neighborhood" is a good companion on a mix (Cd,Mp3,tape,etc) to "Voodoo lady". "Tried and True", also hauntingly sweet, but make way for "Happy Colored Marbles", this gem should end up in a sick, twisted romantic comedy someday soon. "Captain" slows you down just enough for "Chocolate Town", "I don't want it", and trick your friends at a party with "The F**ked Jam", "Alcan Road" "The Argus" are quite pleasing as well, but the highlight of this album is "If you could save yourself(you could save us all)", it reminds me somehow of Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd, especially the line "I left you a note, but I wrote it in disappearing ink", this could have easily been something off of "Meddle" (somebody else said this first, of course) or the "Final Cut" This isn't your average Ween album, but your girlfriend won't make you shut it off in the car.
