LONG PLAYER OF THE DAY: Ween, ‘White Pepper’

Ween - 'White Pepper' album coverThe Artist/Album: Ween, White Pepper (Elektra, 2000)

Our Review: As the world continues to mourn the loss of Ween, we thought we’d point the uninitiated in the general direction of the duo’s penultimate pop album. A Beatles-referencing balancing act between killer hooks and ridiculous comedy routines (“Bananas and Blow,” anyone), White Pepper is arguably Gene and Dean’s finest hour. Or at the very least, right on par with Chocolate and Cheese, proving the prescience of its opening lines: “I’m all staged/ It’s all an act/ I’m really scared that I may fall back on the abstract/ It’d be exactly where I’m at.” Not anymore, apparently.
