10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Across 11 albums, Weezer’s steady exploration of sounds and ideas has been anchored to their enduring commitment to indelible pop tunes. That approach stands firm on a set of virally catchy songs that begins with the crunchy, metallic riffs of “Mexican Fender,” and ends on the hearty strumming and upbeat harmonies of “Any Friend of Diane’s”. In between, Rivers Cuomo’s sighing meditations on love, loss, and The Beach Boys are dressed in rich fusions of rock, 21st-century R&B, and baroque pop, while the album’s greatest, grandest moment, “Sweet Mary,” is a gorgeous invocation of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound.

This album is DEPRESSING!!! 🤮

This album is sooo bad, that even though I am a Weezer fan since the blue album and I can say they are my favorite band, it made me lose my interest in them.
I am not excited anymore by Weezer singles being released.
I hope I can fall back in love with them with a future album, but for now I’m on a Weezer break.

I don't know...

This is an odd cookie to crumble. This is a cute album, but it does not feel like Weezer, nor Make Believe Weezer (thank Christ...), it feels like Foster The People. I like two songs on the album, "QB Biltz" and "Mexican Fender". "QB Blitz" is a strikingly familiar song, and is cute, but not the best song (by FAR) Weezer has made. "Mexican Fender" is just a guilty pleasure song. I would only buy QB Blitz, and wait for the next Weezer album to come out. Also, avoid the Africa cover, and buy Torches by Foster The People. Good Luck!

NOT WEEZER

This should have been a Rivers solo release, it might have received better reviews. As a Weezer record, only Mexican Fender and Sweet Mary qualify. Feels Like Summer is a catchy pop tune....if you like pop music. Weezer fans generally prefer drums and guitars. Time to call Matt Sharp and do a Cheap Trick turnaround....because this is their Doctor.
