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.

karaoke NOT cover

When I first heard the Africa song I was so excited because Weezer is one of my favorite bands. Then when I heard the chorus without a hard hitting guitar I fell apart inside.

The whole point of a cover song is to make it your own. This is not hard Weezer covering classic songs with an alt punk sound. Just a great band who decided to do karaoke covers. I think how great these songs could’ve sound and I’m left not even wanting to buy the album. 😩😭
