Another Weezer album so soon? We are truly blessed!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Maladroit (Audio CD)
Rivers and co let loose on their fourth album with a barrage of guitars, axe-wielding solos and a vast collection of beach boy 'woo-hoos' and high pitched harmonies.
The much harder sound echoes their pinkerton release but with more confident (and occasionally optimistic!) lyrics. Dope Nose, Possibilities and Keep fishin' are all guitar packed highlights while tracks like Death and Destruction sees the band explore a new, mellowish side.
Personally i find their new 'hard rock' direction fresh and interesting, a little different to their well established sound but still packed with the exquisite melodies you can hum for weeks.
Pat Wilson proves once again his brilliance behind the drums, and new signing Scott Shriner on bass fills out Weezer's rocking new outlook brilliantly.
An album that take Weezer in a fresh new direction, throwing off the nerd tag and hanging a brand new one round the band called 'rock'.
