Any love for Weezer here?

  • this is always fun to do!
    Blue Album & Pinkerton: What can be said that hasn't already. But sometimes you hear albums so much, while you like them, you dont want to put them on anymore.
    Green Album: Still like this a lot, even knowing/hearing about them putting almost nothing into it. Was fun when it came out, super short, most of the songs sound the same, but i like that sound.
    Maladroit: This is my favorite. Wasn't always, but it just feels so different and so much darker, especially after you get past those first 3 tracks( love Keep Fishing!). Slob, Slave, Love Explosion, December.. great album!
    Make Believe: I'm okay with this. Not Beverly Hills though. This was the first time i really thought of Weezer as 'lame." This is a Pity is one of my favorites still.
    Red Album: Ugh, so much lame here. This was the first Weezer album i was afraid of playing with the windows down in my car for fear of someone hearing Troublemaker or Pork and Beans coming out. The Greatest Man Whoever lived and Dreamin' are awesome songs, though.
    Raditude: Public opinion is brutal on this one. The Red Album took me out of Weezer interest and i skipped this one initially. I did like the first track. Going back--i don't get it. This is a fun, catchy album. I'm Your Daddy, The Girl Got Hot, Tripping..., Love is the Answer, Let it all hang Out. Even the two slow songs, Put Me Back Together and I Don't Want to Let You Go are Great. Go back and give Raditude another chance. 
    Hurley: Ok, I was big into Lost and that half sold me on coming back to Weezer. I tried.. this album just kind of underwhelms me. Trainwrecks is awesome, though.  
    Death To False Metal: Do we count this? I don't.
    Everything Will Be Alright In the End: Skipped this one too, initially. Picked it up last year-- wow. maybe my 2nd favorite. Or at least the one i want to still listen to 2nd most. I love the "EWBAITE" theme that appears in many songs and runs throughout the album. I often put this on starting at The British Are Coming and just let it run through Da Vinci, Go Away, Cleopatra, and Foolish Father. When the album's theme hits in Foolish Father, i pretty much wish the album ended there.Real good. 
    White Album: Love it! The summer theme running throughout works real well. Starts almost at the start of summer... you meet a girl, get messed up, then "just want the summer to end."

    If they quit after Pinkerton they'd be alternative legends.  
    They sorta did because Pinkerton sold poorly. Then when they went away, everybody decided they loved it. It's no wonder Rivers called the fans "little bitches."

    I saw Weezer play a show around 2002.   I knew some of there songs (mostly the radio ones) but not alot of the other stuff.  It was one of those shows the pleasantly surprised me.   I didn't really have any expectations, but they did a really good show.  I went back and bought their older albums and spent more time listening to them.

    I agree with pretty much everything you've said.  
    Maladroit is right up there with the two classics
    Everything Will Be... was a nice return and White album is great.  
    Also, Red has some duds but also some excellent B Sides (Miss Sweeney, King, Pig, The Spider)

    Some post Pinkerton standouts for me:
    Green Album: Smile, Crab
    Maladroit:  Death & Deconstruction, Slave, Take Control, Fall Together, 
    Make Believe: Haunt You Everyday, Hold Me, Perfect Situation
    Red Album(deluxe): The Angel and the One, Miss Sweeney, Greatest Man, Dreamin, King
    Raditude: Put Me Back Together
    Hurley: 
    Everything: I've had it Up to Here, Foolish Father, Lonely Girl
    White Album: Wind In Our Sail, Summer Elaine, LA Girlz, King of the World, Jacked Up

    Hate to be one of those people, but I liked the blue album and that's pretty much it.  Didn't care for Pinkerton and haven't bought an album since.  The blue album is fucking legendary, though.

    The Blue album is a 90s classic and strangely I just listened to Pinkerton for the first time yesterday after reading this thread and thought it was pretty good. I really never liked much else from them but a song here or there. I might just have to pick up a used Pinkerton CD.
    Pinkerton is one the best albums ever made, period.
    Yep.
    Yes and then it basically ends there for Weezer. Although I kind of like Maladroit still

    I agree with some of the detailed comments above. Especially about the Red b-sides and Raditude. Those Red b-sides are all amazing. Take out some album tracks and insert these in and you've got a great album. If you don't go into Raditude expecting it to change your life and see it as a pop album- it's quite good. If You're Wondering is such a great song. In another era, it would have been a huge hit. 
    The last two albums have been amazing. Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori is one of my favorite Weezer songs ever.

    Saw Weezer on the Pinkerton tour. Awful show but such a great time period.

    Use the Weezeme15 discount code to get 15% off at Weezers webstore. Bought the new album with it.
  • New song, Beach Boys, is out. It's pretty awful. This album might seriously rank below Hurley and the b-sides collection. It's shaping up to be atrocious. I had such high hopes when I learned Butch Walker was producing it, too. God damnit. The last two were SO GOOD. So it's not a question of being incapable to write great albums anymore that is frustrating; it's the idea of being so okay with releasing music that is clearly nowhere near the quality of the last two. God damnit, Weezer. 
  • ledveddermanledvedderman Posts: 7,739
    Really wish the full album would leak so I can get the, what is sure to be, insanely disappointing first listen over with. 
  • Album is fantastic!

    Weezer releases their cover of Toto's Africa because some of their fans demanded it.

    Saw Weezer open for No Doubt in the summer of 1997. I was totally into Pinkerton. probably one of very few.

    No Doubts shitty tweener fans threw nachos at me and my gf because we were standing up during the WEEZER set. I left right after they were finished playing.

    Love the Toto cover.  Amazing

    Funny skit. 

    I liked seeing earlier Weezer on late night shows better than their actual records.
