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.
