RIP Ween. As you can see from my username, I am a big fan, and it sucks that I'm so late to hop on the bandwagon (started listening right after they broke up). But, nevertheless, here is my opinion on the 10 Ween albums + The Friends EP. List goes from worst to best.
12 Golden Country Greats

Let me start off by saying this is a fantastic album, a great collection of songs.
Unfortunately, like Beck's Midnite Vultures, it confuses me why Ween would release
an album of only one genre, a genre they only covered a couple times. I'm not
ranking solely based on that fact, but I'd definitely be least likely to listen to it.
2 Ween
Shinola, Vol. 1

Shinola is an album full of Ween b-sides and rarities, and unfortunately, the songs
sound just like that; b-sides. Fun, enjoyable album (duh, it's Ween), but almost all of
the songs are just really repetitive (prime example: Tastes Good On th' Bun).
3 Ween
The Friends EP

I wish I didn't have to put this and La Cucaracha so low. They really are great
albums, and I think that people don't appreciate them enough. Oh well. This is
probably the most fun thing that Ween has ever released, next to La Cuc. It's got
techno, reggae, salsa, and a hilarious attempt at cheesiness (Slow Down Boy).
Really, what's not to like?
The Pod

The darkest, trippiest, most challenging, and most inconsistent of all Ween albums.
The Pod is what happens when two best friends get all of their limited musical
equipment and just screw around (oh, and don't forget the Scotchguard!)
La Cucaracha

La Cuc continues the fun and frivolity of Friends, but opts for an even more diverse
tracklist. It's a very different direction for Ween, but at the same time, it also
encompasses what they do best.
6 Ween
God Ween Satan: The Oneness

Much like The Pod, GWS is just two friends having fun, except THIS time, they try a
little harder at writing actual songs. A surprisingly consistent offering, this album is
the triumph of the Ween punk era.
Pure Guava

A lighter take on The Pod, Pure Guava may not be Ween at their funnest, but they
are certainly having the most fun on this record.
White Pepper

I used to think that this was Ween weakest, but then I took a second listen. The
amount of classic tracks on here is staggering. A perfect transition from the
lighthearted psychedelia of The Mollusk to the much darker aspects of Quebec.

Speaking of Quebec, this was my first Ween record. And boy, did it make me want
more. Quebec distinguishes the differences between "fun" and "funny"; it's certainly
funny, but it's a much, much darker path for the pair.
Chocolate and Cheese

These last two were nearly impossible to rank. C&C is a refreshingly hi-fi take on
Ween's music, while it still manages to be unbelievably brown. This album contains
just about every genre imaginable, although it's hard to tell if they are parodying
them or actually writing genuine, straight-from-the-heart songs out of them (and it's
actually the latter). Once again, an extremely high amount of classic tracks to be
found here.
The Mollusk

This just had to be number one. You can't deny the sheer fun-ness of this record,
and when they take that fun and put it into extremely well-written songs, you've just
made the perfect album. What else can you say about it? I recommend this and the
rest of Ween's discography to anyone with an open mind and a fun-loving heart.
