iTunes Review

At heart, Rivers Cuomo is a pop star with a hard rocker’s heart. He loves tough guitars, caressing harmonies and earnest melodies that sound as if they were born to come cranking out of a transistor radio. On Hurley, the band’s 2010 release, Cuomo teams up with a number of co-writers, from professional song doctors Desmond Child and Linda Perry to alt-country performer Ryan Adams and 1970s star Mac Davis. There’s plenty here to like.  “Ruling Me,” written with Dan Wilson, swoons like the Beach Boys. “Run Away,” with Ryan Adams, adds a new-wave rock tension from 1982. “Smart Girls,” with No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, pushes off a bass line to lead into its explosive chorus. “Where’s My Sex?” is the sound of Cuomo reverting to form as the confused arrested adolescent. “Time Flies,” with Mac Davis, is a deliberately raw closing tune highlighted by Cuomo’s nearly off-key emotionalism giving things a desperate goodbye as Weezer transform into lo-fi kings Guided by Voices for a moment. The Deluxe Edition includes four bonus cuts, including a convincing read of Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” and the hard-rock crunching of “All My Friends Are Insects.”

Customer Reviews

Weezer gets worse with every album

I have been a weezer fan all my life, even through Raditude. But this, I cannot bear. This is not weezer. This is garbage.

Yeah Weezer! Thank you!

You saved the day! I was looking forward to Linkin Park's new album and Weezer's new one. I bought both and listened to LP's first and man it was horrible! I hated it so much (I mean look at my name... I was a huge fan). Then I needed Weezer to save the day and I heard Memories... Oh my sugar dumplings... Weezer went and saved the day! I love this band! They've been around most of my life and they're still pumping out the hits! I don't know if it's as good as their first album or the Red Album but still good. I ABSOLUTELY love the song Unspoken. At the very least, buy that song but the album is worth the money for a Weezer fan. By all means, avoid Linkin Park's new album A Thousand Suns. Get this instead!

I also love that this band used Hurley from Lost as their cover and album name. I totally get why they did this. Who doesn't love Hurley?!?!? I would have bought the album just to support Weezer for being so cool by doing this. You tell me one band as big as Weezer who would ever consider doing this. Justin Beeber would never do this. That's why Weezer is so cool!

A solid return to form

Now, Weezer needs no introduction. They really don't. Let's just say, every thing since Pinkerton has been either slightly (Green, Maladroit) or HORRIBLY (Raditude, Make Believe) sub par. But this, is a breath of fresh air. Weezer is taking their music somewhat seriously again, and it's actually quite good.

1. Memories-Fantastic opener. Young, fresh, angry, vibrant. Classic Weezer 9/10

2. Ruling Me-Another sort of classic Weezer song. Quirky lyrics, simple instruments, killer hook. Good song. 7.5/10

3. Trainwrecks-Decent song, the lyrics are a little cheesy and the vocal delivery is kind of weird, and I wish they would've done a full on chorus instead of just a bunch of verses. Still pretty good though. 7/10

4. Unspoken-Best song on the album, and in my opinion, best song they've done since the 90's. Powerful lyrics, unique instruments (random but perfect flute), AMAZING structure, and goose bump inducing finish. Beautiful song. 10/10

5. Where's My Sex-The misstep on the album. Weird vocal delivery, stupid and juvenile delivery. Dumb hook. Not good. 4/10

6. Run Away-I like this track. Its a more subtle, and somewhat darker and deeper version of the earlier track, Run Away. I like the production, and the lyrics are some of the finest on the album. 8.5/10

7. Hang On-Second best track on the album. The production is awesome, the mandolin works so well, the harmonies great, and Rivers delivers his best vocal work of the album arguably. Great song. 9.5/10

8. Smart Girls-This song is pretty average. The unnecessary drum track is a little off putting and reminded me too much of Raditude, but the rest of the production is pretty raw, and very rock and roll. Decent track. 7.5/10

9. Brave New World-I really dig the guitar on this track. The riff is pretty cool in my opinion. Though, the cliche lyrics, and the un original hook and chorus make this a sort of forgettable track. Not bad, though. 7/10

10. Time Flies-The lo-fi production on this track is great, and the campfire/western feel of the guitars and vocals make this a great closer. Rivers lyrics are very personal, and feel like classic Weezer again. 9/10

Overall, I really enjoyed this album. The production and sound is raw and energetic, the lyrics feel more personal again, the hooks and instruments feel more like classic Weezer again, and the overall affect of this album is just better than anything they've put out in the last decade. This album isn't the greatest thing in the world, but it is a certain improvement, and in my opinion, a step in the right direction and a return to form.

Biography

Formed: 1993 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

As one of the most popular groups to emerge in the post-grunge alternative rock aftermath, Weezer received equal amounts of criticism and praise for their hook-heavy guitar pop. Drawing from the heavy power pop of arena rockers like Cheap Trick and the angular guitar leads of the Pixies, Weezer leavened their melodies with doses of '70s metal learned from bands like Kiss. What truly set the band apart, though, was their geekiness. None of the members of Weezer, especially leader Rivers...
