  1. 80
    Ween are still perved to the core.
  2. 80
    Top-notch whiteboy radio rock with an eerie inner glow of Manson family sunshine...
  3. White Pepper lacks the cohesiveness of earlier works, but it also demonstrates how a band can undergo some serious genre-bending, while still retaining a sound that is uniquely theirs.
  4. White Pepper may make listeners put off by Ween's crudeness give them another chance.
  5. 60
    They've previously assaulted all genres from country to reggae but on White Pepper return to their favourite stomping ground of '70s AOR. [July 2000, p.102]
  6. Their most accessible album to date, lacking the flights of fancy and exuberant bizarreness that have marked each of their albums.
  7. Ween are at their best when they either dive headlong into ridiculousness or play it totally straight (admittedly, they don't do the latter very often). Here, however, they walk a rickety platform between those extremes and frequently fall into the ironizer's pit.

    66? 66? 66? What the hell? How could such an amazing album and band get such a low rating? What are people listening to? I can't help but ask questions after seeing that score. Wow. Expand

    Great album, but Pure Guava by the same artist was more shocking and creative in its time... Thats why i only gave it a 9er

    This album does not deserve a 66 score. All of the songs, besides Pandy Fackler and Bananas and blow, get 4 stars. I do miss the weirdness of Ween's old albums, though. Expand

    I like this album, but it's a bit on the weak side for them. I like The Mollusk, Quebec, chocolate and cheese, and even La Cucaracha better than this. With that said there is a few gems here. Bananas and Blow, Pandy Fackler, Falling Out, Flutes of chi are all awesome.....stay forever sucks. Expand
