"Weezer" is easily the best album I have ever bought. Originally, I had only ever heard "Buddy Holly", and sheerly bought the album to complete a "3 for £20" sale. However, when I returned home and played the album, I was absolutely amazed......
The album kicks off with "My Name Is Jonas", certainally not the best tune on the album but a great way to start things off, with a great acoustic intro before kicking into the (now) familiar "weezer-esque" riffs. Wonderfully immature and catchy, with its "the workers are going home" chorus, this song grabs your attention to the album straight away.
Every track on the album is a stormer (with the slight exception of "surf wax america", a little on the bland side), with "no one else" colliding a chirpy tune with some really quite dark lyrics, "the world has turned" with its brilliant lyrics and plinky acoustic riffs, "buddy holly", easily the most catchy song of all time, "undone", another immature and in some ways quite bizzare track, "say it aint so", a suprisingly laid back start to a tune which turns into an emotionally brilliant masterpiece, "in the garage", a song in which rivers sings about his own little hideaway, which im sure we all have, "holiday", a hugely optimistic and head-banging track, before the oh-so-perfect 8-minute stormer "only in dreams", which is perhaps the most beautiful and moving song i have ever heard.
Those willing to turn away from the sum 41s of the world and get an album which truely is "all killer" must do themselves a huge musical favour and buy this album.
