back where they belong,
By A Customer
This review is from: Maladroit (Audio CD)
The green album did it's job well, it edged weezer back into the publics conscience after the 5 year absence, but it was just a pre-cursor for on Maladroit Weezer really announce that they're back!
A much more rewarding record than green, here weezer are back in full flow, Rivers displaying the full spectrum of his ability as a song writer. The instantly recognisable pop rock of blue ('Dope nose' and 'burnt jamb') the darker, fuzzier growl of pinkerton ('space rock' and 'Take control) are both evident and hybrids of the two ('keep fishin' and 'living without you'). This is a intensley rewarding album, hum-able after one play but still revealing itself after multiple spins. Weezer fans will love it, so should non-Weezer fans but as per normal they probably just wont get it. YOU SHOULD!
