Product Description

Product Description

With each new release, Weezer have sharpened their wicked edge and raised the bar in alternative pop - and new album Make Believe has already been hailed as their best record since 1994’s Blue Album. This is the band at their very best - Make Believe is a proper slice of hook-laden rock. Highlights include "We Are All On Drugs", "Perfect Situation" and the future classic "Beverly Hills" - the single that may be Weezer’s biggest hit to date. Make Believe contains two UK bonus tracks and an enhanced section that features an in-studio documentary on the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars =W= fantastic-buy it and you won't regret it =W= 30 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Don't like Beverly Hills??! Who cares, as this is by far the weakest song on the album (which I think is an excellent sign!).
Catchy, poigiant and generally fantastic, that's 'Make Believe'. Rivers Cuomo, recently described by Liam Gallagher as 'my new favourite rock star' again fails to disappoint. Tracks such as 'The Other Way', 'Perfect Situation' and 'My Best Friend' (which was set to open Shrek 2) are very upbeat, and would certainly encourage the trademark Weezer clapping. If you are more of a fan of mellower songs, then 'Hold Me' and 'Haunt You Every Day' are proper lighter-wavers, with giant guitar solos cropping up in many songs, 'Pardon Me' for example. 'This is Such a Pity' is my personal favourite, and I would challenge anyone to sit still to it and not jump around/sway/clap/enjoy it!
I'm not going to compare this to other Weezer albums (also definately worth buying) as I think that it is very different and should be treated on its own. However, I think that it should, (like Pinkerton etc.) take pride of place at the top of any record collection-beat the rush, as when more singles are released, 'Make Believe' will certainly be hot property!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm a believer 31 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Looking at Weezer's impressive back catalogue of catchy, summery albums it is easy to see why so many have slated this album as an undesirable step out of the mould. Initially the album doesn't make much of an impression, but after a few listens the quality touches Weezer seem to administer with astonishing ease become apparant and the album begins to display a level of musicianship previously unseen from the band.
Fair enough there's a significant lack of the bouncy and the cheerful on this record but rest assured that doesn't mean a decrease in the interest. The least appealing track has to be Beverly Hills which, once you've got the riff stuck in your head, becomes irritating and cheap-sounding. Thankfully the rest of the album veers away from the anthemic somewhat and rests on a more mature sound which I think (probably in contrary to everyone else) suits the band, as they themselves are now well into their thirties. Stand-out tracks are the fantastic 'This Is Such A Pity', an 80s tinged look back at the Pinkerton days and 'Pardon Me' which sounds like the bigger, bolder sister of 'Butterfly'. There is a definite similarity between this album and Pinkerton which is perhaps unusual given lead singer Rivers' hatred of the excellent 1996 record. This time around, however, the album has a more focussed sound which isn't interrupted by often similar sounding cheerful tracks.
This is, as many others have commented, an essential album for an Weezer fan's collection, although there is a newer sound which may appeal to others who have been put off by their previous work. A great new direction for the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Record For Summer 2005 19 Jun 2005
By Chris C
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion this year is starting to become a great year for comebacks, three years since Maladroit and clearly Weezer has not missed a beat, in fact they have gained a new beat.
In the span of a decade between their debut and Make Believe, Weezer has become more popular and Rivers' lyrics became more and more insanely catchy. This time around, there is a sign of positivity and happiness in the songs, particularly in the single 'Beverly Hills'. Some fans may be appalled by this turn of events but unlike Maladroit, there is not a single 'poor' song on here, each song is either moving, good-feel or just plain great.
Power ballads like Hold Me and The Damage in your Heart are fantastic, very rocky and lyrically great without getting way too soppy. There are also the poppy tunes like My Best Friend, or the next possible single 'We Are All On Drugs' making Make Believe a mixed bag.
Of course this album will split opinions right down the middle, but i will stick to my guns and say that this is one of the albums of 2005. Fantastic, cheerful and bloody catchy. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic listen 16 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have been a huge fan of weezer for many years and have been happy with all of their previous albums. Maladroit was a little harder to get into but I do think its a great album.
There are many mixed opinions about this particular album. I wasn't too sure about this either myself at first. After listening to this album an awful lot and also going through a breakup of a relationship, helped me understand the lyrics etc.
Standout track are:
BEVERLY HILLS, PERFECT SITUATION, THIS IS SUCH A PITY, PEACE, WE ARE ALL ON DRUGS, PARDON ME, MY BEST FRIEND, THE OTHER WAY.
HOLD ME, THE DAMGE IN YOUR HEART, FREAK ME OUT AND HAUNT YOU EVERY DAY ARE TRACK THAT NEED THAT EXTRA LISTEN TO ACCEPT WHAT RIVERS IS TRYING TO SAY.
Oh, the track are quite good also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album 14 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am surprised by the number of negative reviews for this CD. I have been a fan of Weezer for more than 10 years and this for me is right up there with their best (Blue Album aside).
The song 'Perfect Situation' is one of my Weezer favourites of all-time, while the melodic 'Peace' and 'Hold Me' are also classics.
Not this should matter with an album of this quality but at that price it is a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Weezer Album Yet? Oh Hell Yeah... 15 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the album Weezer fans have been waiting for. 'Make Believe' takes the developed songs of the 'Blue Album' and 'Pinkerton', and adds the soaring hooks of the 'Green Album' and 'Maladroit', and the end result is a phenomenal collection of perfect pop and rock songs.
Things start brilliantly with 'Beverly Hills'. The simple hooks of this song take a while to get used to, but after this track everything is full power. 'Perfect Situation' is one of Weezer's best songs yet, and 'This Is Such A Pity' is probably the most original Weezer song yet - it reminds me of the Police, and is a brilliant addition to Weezer's reputation.
The stand out tracks are the first three that I have mentioned, 'The Damage In Your Heart' and 'The Other Way', the latter being the best track on the album.
There isn't a bad track on this album, and this is without a doubt the album of the summer.

This is Weezer's worst album by a long shot, if you are familiar with the Manic Street Preachers then this would be their version of "Lifeblood" . Read more
