Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on This album has a Bayesian average rating of 82.2/100, a mean average of 81.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 82.6/100. The standard deviation for this album is 14.5.

It's a crime that this album is not sitting in first place for 2003. And to be at #16? To some, Ween will forever remain "those weirdos that did 'Push Th' Little Daisies'". They'll never realize how filled out their sound and songwriting became, with this album being exhibit A. Song after song on this album takes on a different genre of rock, and they knock them all out of the park.

Hay unas cuantas canciones que no me agradaron, pero se nota que esta es una banda que se divierte tocando música. Hay algunos chistes con obscenidades que le bajan la seriedad, pero hay otras canciones que sí se disfrutan bastante, como mis favoritas que han sido The Argus, Tried and True e It's Gonna Be a Long Night. Captain y Chocolate Town también están muy buenas. Esta es una banda poco convencional. Nunca la había escuchando antes, pero vi que tocaban rock, el disco era de este siglo y sus canciones tenían duración normal, así que le di play en Spotify sin saber qué esperar. Me he llevado una buena primera experiencia. No es mi banda favorita, ni sé si lo será, pero se la recomendaría a mis amigos.

wow... im just glad i took the time to listen to this album of the day... more than just worth it. Every track has a different vibe from the other. I could do without So Many People In the Neighborhood but if I look at it like a silly, long interlude I can easily forgive it. These guys are good

Took me too long to get to this album. Quebec is an absolute magnum opus. I thought The Mollusk was great, but this is honestly way better. Pretty much every song is a highlight. Track 12 is… interesting. Don’t let it sully your listening experience though, this is an absolutely fantastic record.

With its highs and lows from The Argus to the Fucked Jam, even if you don't like this album you have to admit there is no other album quite like it. Personally it's one of my favourite albums of all time.

Boognish Lives! I love the boys from New Hope. Quebec has been a favorite of mine since its release. Don’t let the opening Lemmy sounding track fool you. Even though it’s great, the rest of the album sounds nothing like it. Quebec has a lot of Ween’s most beautiful and transcendent music, with a couple of silly exceptions. Most of the songs are slower tempo and suck me into a dreamlike world. Transdermal Celebration, Among His Tribe, Tried And True, Captain, Chocolate Town, I Don’t Want It, The Argus, and If You Could Save Yourself are all 95-100 rated tracks for me. They are still fresh after 15+ years of regular play.

Oh my god this is good. Honestly pretty baffling to me that this album isn't better known.

Yes, it is so incredibly good that many of the tracks are still ranking at or around 90.

If you've never heard this album, it's because it's by Ween. Just about everybody, at a certain point before this album, wrote Ween off as a novelty band (and rightfully so, at least for the early 90s). However, these guys are excellent songwriters, and after a certain point they really blossomed. This is their magnum opus, the album where they, having already distanced themselves from novelty status, completely cut off any echoes of it. This is Ween matured, and at their full potential, and it's really really good stuff -- not by just the standards of the band (which are fairly high anyway), but in general.

Atmosphere is a key element to this album, and is used beautifully in Captain, Zoloft, Alcan Road, and Among His Tribe. There's also fantastic guitar work on tracks like Transdermal Celebration and Tried and True. The penultimate song, The Argus, is hands-down the greatest thing Ween has ever done and one of my all-time favorite songs. There's something here for every emotion, and it's a quintessential prog-rock album no matter who you are.

Don't raise an eyebrow because you've never heard of an album before. If it's high-rated, give it a shot. There's probably a reason.
