Ween's 8th album is one of those albums where you have to have fun with it to like it, basically the same thing for their whole entire discography. Quebec, to put it simply, is a rollercoaster.

They take the whimsical vocal and instrumental styles which were on The Mollusk and mix them with the alternative rock sound which they tried in earlier albums like Chocolate and Cheese. Every single hook is pure bliss, whether it be one of the weirder ones (So Many People in the Neighborhood) or more mainstream rock influenced (Transdermal Celebration), the hooks are probably the most memorable ... read more
