When Ween released their debut, God Ween Satan, in 1990, the question on most listeners' minds was "Are they serious?" Ten years later, White Pepper has folks asking "Are they joking?" No, as evidenced by the straightforward pop that makes up their eighth studio effort. This isn't a sellout, but a continuation of the sound explored on their previous release, The Mollusk. Songs like "Even If You Don't" and "Back to Basom" are respective nods to their McCartney and Lennon joneses, and even more stunningly, the brothers Ween bust out their most irony-free love song yet, "Stay Forever." The boys haven't completely abandoned the silly--the Caribbean-flavored "Bananas and Blow" and the Steely Dan-influenced "Pandy Fackler" are good for giggles--but the "more pop, less poop" rule remains in effect, leaving room for majestic tastiness like "Flutes of Chi" and "The Grobe." All in all, a fantastic salute to rock & roll. --Jason Josephes

Customer Reviews

I ran out and bought this album immediately.

First time listeners will most likely find this one the most accessible if they were scared off by the craziness of Ween's earlier albums.
Alan Pounds
This album is a tad more mature than some of their earlier stuff, and is a great salute to the older styles of rock music.

it seems that ween has reached their Beatles phase, outstanding displays of songwriting are backed with mellotrons, backwards guitar, and plenty of cool noises. every song is great!

Some here are hung up on The Mollusk--to that I say, Up aRope. The Mollusk is a great album, but their best? Come on. White Pepper makes its way into your aural stimulation center with no apologies for being a thrill to listen to. This one FLOWS. I miss the sick comedy and rough edges of the GWS and Pod era that make Ween Ween, but White Pepper is a gem that delves into new sound for Gene and Dean--these guys are Musicians. Pandy Fackler and Bananas and Blow are Ween on the flip, while Even if You Don't, Back to Basom, Stay Forever and Falling Out shine with pop brilliance. The album would not be complete without Stroker Ace, the kickbutt hard rock entry,which could use a cousin in place of the sappy She's Your Baby (I guess we all get older and express some "feeling" or whatever), and a little short on the total time, but a fine offering. Once through and you ask if this is the definitive, as we know them Ween; twice through and more you discover some of the old magic still resides, and the melodies imprint themselves in your memory. And by all means, catch them in concert. If you don't, you're missing the poopship.....long live Boognish.

I had already heard most of the songs on this album from concerts before the release date. I loved them, and now the studio versions add alot to these already great works of music. This is a somewhat straightforward album, But the songs are amzingly beautiful. The first two tracks sound like they could have been taken from their last album "The Mollusk". In fact Flutes of Chi was originally a demo from the Mollusk sessions. Even if you Don't sounds as if Billy Joel wrote it, but you can definitely hear the brothers Ween touch on it. Bananas and Blow sounds like a Jimmy Buffet tune. Strokerace has a very hardrockin' sound. Ice Castles is a beautiful instrumental piece. The melody and lyrics to Back to Basom are magical sounding. The Grobe is a great rock tune. Pandy Fackler is a Jazzy song that will leave you humming the melody and laughing. The last three songs are a bit on the country side. The song Falling Out stands out among those. Every track is strong on this album.

The newest ween album is a bit different than the usual ween, but then again each of their albums are really unique from one another. If anyone has ever doubted ween's talent its because they never have seen them live or haven't yet heard this album. However, I wish they threw in one more crazy, weird, old school, ween song. The beautiful thing about ween and their concerts is that all different types of people go. You got your country folks, your classic punk rockers, the preppy guys, the middle age folks still lookin for a good time, even r&b, and of course the hippies. This album adheres to the concert followers. I can see this album instantly being apart of my summer of 2000. "White Pepper" will with out a doubt create more ween fans. If you have never heard of Ween, this is a mellow way to ease into the bands randomness. Don't be a sucka, buy this album and listen to it with a good friend.

Ween's previous offerings, from GodWeenSatan to The Mollusk have been wildly varied, highly eccentric affairs, to say the least. From the Philly soul of 'Freedom of '76' to the helium-inhaling madness of 'Push th' little daisies,' there are few musical genres or lyrical gutters that the brothers Ween haven't explored and indeed exploited. By contrast, their most recent album, White Pepper has a fairly straight-ahead rock feel to it. While they do take several dives of the musical deep-end (Bananas and Blow, Pandy Fackler,) songs like 'Even if you don't' and 'Back to Basom' would fit relatively comfortably on any Beatles or Pink Floyd album. Paradoxically, the conventional, more homogenous sound of White Pepper, leads to it having a less conceptual feel than the likes of Chocolate and Cheese and The Mollusk. Nevertheless, White Pepper is a fine album with several songs that rank among the group's best. Take the closer,'She's you baby.' This slow moving ballad is surprisingly direct and moving, its poignancy tempered only by the fact that it might just be an inside joke. But beauty for Ween has always been in the ambiguity and White Pepper is no exception. Put on White Pepper and get ready for a whole new kind of magical mystery tour.

Time will be very kind to Ween. While they currently serve the boognish below the radar of mainstream recognition, they are the most generous, creative, energetic bunch of lads working in the music biz. Their entire oeuvre will oneday be revered by critics and listeners alike.
This album is great and reminds that even though ween has always catered to their own sense of humor, at heart they could not help but write interesting and often beautiful songs. Songs, my friends. Yes, some of their old lyrics and arrangements have been pretty unusual, but the promise for the catchy-sounds of White Pepper were made back in the Pod.
Anyone who says they "miss" the more chaotic sounds of God Ween Satan or the Pod should just put those albums on (or go check them out live). Ween is trying out new stuff, and it's really all pretty damn good.
Oh, Ween. Ween. Ween. Ween Ween. Ween. Ween. Ween. Ween.
Ween.
