10 Songs, 41 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Known as “The Blue Album” to fans, Weezer's debut is practically a greatest hits set. Rivers Cuomo flaunts his obsessions without shame, shouting out Kiss and the X-Men (“In the Garage”) while proving he’d studied The Beach Boys as much as Nirvana by offering up sugar-rush harmonies ("Holiday"), surging power chords ("My Name Is Jonas"), and deft-guitar shredding ("Say It Ain't So"). Unabashedly vulnerable, Weezer still resonates thanks to Cuomo's knack for making geekdom seem like the coolest move possible.

Musicianship

I'm a professional jazz musician. Much like the beatles, musicians (such as myself) will deem weezer as another "punk" band. No. They are accomplished musicians with mature compositional structure, impressive melodies and they stray far from the musically inept. Good album. Although I do prefer jazz.

Forget saving the best for last...

This album is great. This is the first album released by Weezer, and it is the best Weezer album. Everyone knows it, it is obvious to the point of being stupid if you disagree. Yes, they had Pinkerton, The White Album, and Hurley (it's okay), but you can't compare "El Scorcho" and "Pink Triangle" to "My Name Is Jonas", "No One Else", "Buddy Holly", "Undone-The Sweater Song", "Say it Ain't So", and "In The Garage". Although the target audience of this album is quite small, everyone can enjoy these Punk Rock masterpieces. Enjoy!

amazing

in my opinion, this is a top 10 rock album of all time. every song is like exploring a new world, and so few artists are able to produce this kind of drug fueled album.
