Product Description

BBC Review

Weezer are undoubtedly massive heroes. Some 16 years after their breakout single Buddy Holly pretty much invented geek rock, the loveably effete quartet can still crank out brilliant melodies when the mood suits.

Eight albums in, though, and what more can they say? Unfortunately, not a great deal. Guys are inevitably idiots most of the time and girls can be complicated. We get it. So the best songs on Hurley are immediately familiar, like an old lover’s phone number you can’t forget. This is great, but obviously not that great. Everybody should move on after a while.

Uncertain love song Ruling Me includes the fabulous line, "You shove me out but it turns me on," but ultimately it’s just not as good as its most obvious comparison, early rarity Jamie. Elsewhere, the crunching slacker anthem Trainwrecks will remind any sentient beings of Weezer's own Beverly Hills (one of the best singles of 2005) and, rather perversely, Feargal Sharkey’s A Good Heart.

Frontman Rivers Cuomo is as contradictorily charismatic and slight here as he is on every release, but this can be a hindrance. His vocals have the same old yearning and direct energy, but at times it’s hard to care. Time Flies might have been a brilliant Graham Coxon acoustic tear-up; instead it just drifts by lazily like a packed bus during rush hour. Deliberately scuzzy acoustic guitars and distortion are great, but where’s the tune? Cuomo and occasional Weezer collaborator Shawn Everett were behind the desk on this song but they would’ve fared better with Rick Rubin, who was a great influence on the band’s early work and a vital contributor to their red self-titled album of 2008, which yielded songs as weirdly excellent but still naggingly melodic as Pork and Beans.

Describing a Weezer album as disappointing is a bit like watching an Olympic medal winner smoke crack: a sad reminder that everyone is fallible, no matter how talented they are. Check out their Reading Festival performance on YouTube or an earlier album to get a proper idea of what the band can do.

4.0 out of 5 stars More like it... 27 Sep 2010
By Paul Mc
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When critics discuss Weezer, they tend to refer to two classic albums and a host of disappointments. I am inclined to agree with this view, though my two classics are Pinkerton and the unspeakably magnificent Green Album (the Blue album isn't quite at that level for me, they were still learning their trade). Following the Green Album, though, the fayre we have been treated to has been the disappointing `Maladroit,' the downright awful `Make Believe' and the overly poppy `Raditude.' Only the Red Album (in patches) has done anything to arrest this trend.

However, with a new record label and some big-name assistance with the songwriting, with `Hurley' I am pleased to say Rivers and Co are showing signs of getting back on the right track.

In style, this is probably most similar to `Green,' ten short-but sweet pop-rock blasts with no unnecessary frills or experimentation. In particular, `memories,' `Ruling Me' and the quirky closer `Time Flies' stand out.

Possibly due to the jump to an Indie label (Epitaph) there is a freedom an unfettered feel to the songwriting (no contrived hit singles a la `Beverly Hills' or rap collaborations here) and Rivers certainly sounds like he's having fun. There is still the grating `teen angst' air to the lyrics, difficult to reconcile with a man who, last I heard, was happily married...but that is what you get from Weezer and maybe we shouldn't expect anything else.

It is arguable that Weezer will never reach the level of their first three albums (unless Rivers goes through a messy divorce, which we wouldn't wish on him). But for the moment, this will more than do the trick.

4.0 out of 5 stars An album to take seriously 20 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Although the British media has failed to pick up on it as prominently as its American counterpart (perhaps because weezer aren't as relevant in Europe as in the states), it's clear that over the past decade weezer have become something of a joke. The band themselves haven't helped tackle this, given their last (woeful) album was called "Raditude" and had a flying dog on the cover (in fact, the cover of this album doesn't help matters either). Gradually losing a lot of the goodwill - garnered in response to the indisputably classic Blue Album and Pinkerton - with 5 albums worth of tracks ranging from merely above average power pop to dreadful embarrassments (most recently Beverly Hills, Can't Stop Partying, I'm Your Daddy, Cold Dark World etc...) the band hit a low point when Pitchfork media - the Mecca of the US indie music press - gave 2005's Make Believe 0.4 stars out of ten while claiming it was not only "just plain awful" but also retroactively ruined any enjoyment of even the bands first 2 brilliant albums.

While these comments were unfair, Make Beleive confirmed what the Green Album and Maladroit - almost entirely consisting of 2 1/2 minute songs with cookie cutter lyrics and power pop hooks - had suggested: that weezer was creatively defunct. Nothing about that album, and very little of Green and Maladroit, stood out as the product of an experienced band who had once defined a genre and inspired countless copy-cat acts (indeed, they barely managed to outdo the output of these very same copy-cats).

While Hurley isn't a return to form (as the band had, perhaps unfairly, hinted while publicising the album) it is successful at wiping the slate clean for fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just more great Weezer! 10 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Weezer is a band that just makes you happy, drive your car a little faster, get the housework done faster when you listen to it, gets the dog walked a bit longer when it's on your headphones! Just makes me smile to listen to them!

I am new to Weezer, picking this album after a paper review. And was very pleased, a mainly strong album of indie pop with intelligently written songs and some great rocking guitar-led tracks with good melodies. Particular stand out ones for me were the bonus tracks 'All My Friends Are Insects' (crying shame less than 2 minutes long!) and 'Represent', and the main album 'Ruling me' and 'Trainwrecks'. Some others are a bit predictable but can skip those. Will look forward to exploring the Weezer back catalogue...

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a big fan of Weezer since Buddy Holly came out and have all their albums. This is not up there with the best of them. Has its moments but for the best part is all filler. I'm more likely to go back and listen to the Blue Album or Pinkerton.

This is an excellent album, full of brilliantly catchy pop-rock tunes. It feels like an energetic mix of the blue album and Raditude. With the catchy pop elements of Rad and and the raw, full-of-energy side of the blue album. All in all, a great album :) with standout tracks such as: Smart Girls, Time Flies, Memories, Brave New World. Buy it :)
