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 1994s 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 Weezers biggest hit to date. Make Believe contains two UK bonus tracks and an enhanced section that features an in-studio documentary on the band.

The party-rocking opener 'Beverley Hills' is one of the most catchiest things you'll probably ever here, with a nice sing-along chorus and a contemporary feel. Catchy feel-good pop songs come in the shape of tracks like 'Perfect Situation', 'My Best Friend' the 1980s reminiscent synthpop song 'This Is Such A Pity', which marks a real departure from the style of the old stuff, and 'We Are All On Drugs' has stupid (but very truthful) lyrics certainly, but it's a return to the rock style, with a great intro and instrumental which ensures that this track really does 'rock'. Another favourite of mine is 'The Damage In Your Heart', a solid rocker, and a strong contender for the best song of the album.
Weezer might not have the best lyrics out there on 'Make Believe', but then again have they ever? The band were never on the same level as Oasis, but they knew how to make good pop music. Wisely moving with the times in 2005 with a modern sound, this wasn't the '90s and as a result it might not please some members of the old fanbase, but I do think that the overall album is just good fun. This isn't a classic, but it is very playable.
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.
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.

Anyway, this is a great, no, fantastic effort from Weezer. This album has something about it, something brilliant.Read more
