5.0 out of 5 stars Reminds me why I liked them in the first place!, 13 May 2002
This review is from: Maladroit (Audio CD)
After waiting oh so patiently for 5 years, just to receive the 28-minute water treading exercise that was the Green album, my patience with Weezer was just about all out. Pass me the humble pie - this album reminds me what I saw in them in the first place. Apparently, Rivers Cuomo has been stockpiling songs for the last five years, and here are fourteen songs that, unlike their previous offering, have dynamics, a balance of light and shade, and some of the most catchy choruses and guitar hooks Weezer have ever offered us.
As always, the guitars crackle and fizz and feedback in just the right places, and each song cuts into the chorus just where you want it to, lifting each track higher into the stratosphere and taking you with it. The rhythm section sound far more composed with the change of bass player, and Rivers and co sound like they are having fun playing this music again. Experimentation also features on this album, with some wah-wah, differing time signatures, and a couple of tracks that border on some bizarre kind of out there rock-funk fusion. But for the most part this is one huge guitar and vocal harmony workout that is as good as anything Weezer have ever done.
