Mmm... Probably that's one of the problems I have with them. I am a real album listener and I put on an album that fits my mood at that moment. Ween only fits your mood during one song, I guess ;D.
But apart from that, it doesn't seem to hit me in any way.
Still curious about Dotoar's Mixtape.

That's what I'm saying though, their albums often do work together pretty well, even with all the genre bending. I'd recommend either The Mollusk or White Pepper if you want to hear their most cohesive and best stuff. White Pepper is also a little less silly than some of their other albums so that might appeal to you too.

Here we go then with the mixtape: Crash course in Ween

(Ok, not really a crash course because there's no such thing as a 'representative' collection when it comes to these guys. It's more like: You want it - Ween got it!)

awww youre gonna have a great time. i saw ween back in high school, with my buddy david, and a pouch full of jerry garcia

i remember it being a great night

i think youre right though about the classic pop

when i initially got "into" ween i was also going through a big phish phase,......i hate to admit i initially just saw it as novelty, but melodically it is pretty transcending

I actually like those two the least. Well, I like The Mollusk a lot. It was the last one I really liked. My favorite being Chocolate and Cheese and God ween Satan. I dunno. I guess I used to take a lot more drugs.

Was this their "Country" tour? I saw two shows of that. It was amazing. They played with a full band and everybody including the 60+ year old on steel guitar were swigging whiskey the whole time.

Shame, if you approach things with that attitude you're missing out on some of the best music. I mean, it's hard for a band to try to do something new without looking gimmicky.

Ween are definitely talented, they are one of the truly non pretentious but totally "for the musos" bands out her In my opinion.

Anyone who can name their first album "God Satan: the Duality" has me as a fan for life

Bump......

......The Boognish said to do so.

More talk about the Ween is needed.

Only reason to see this movie:
