Release Date: 2010 | Tracklist

Review Summary: the problem is that it's not very well produced at all! In fact they sound more like home demos than a product you would release to the public.

IF you don't know who Weezer, then it's been under a rock for quite some time don't you think? While you might think that would make these this sound the same as it used to, you couldn't be more wrong if you tried. And that's the big problemo with Weezer (i always thought the b sides should go under a different name), the problem is that it's not very well produced at all! In fact they sound more like home demos than a product you would release to the public. And that drags this down from probably a 4 (or at the very least a 4.5) to a 3 or 2. But if you can look past that little factoid then you should be all set to enjoy this doozy of an album headed your way.

This album follows pretty much the same forumla as the first one does; great first half, boring second half. And the same is true for most albums, starting off with a bang but getting sort of old due to the lack of very good production. Luckily though the album starts off with probably it's best set of songs like Tuning Up the Radio. It is just a simple three chord song like the opener My Name is Jonas from Blue, but its a solid song that doesn't get too complex. The second song I don't Want Your Loving is pretty good too, although it has one GLARING flaw; it rips off other Weezer songs! Same melody as some of the others! Did he think we wouldn't notice since its surrounded by a song that he wrote?

Unbroken is another good one although its more of a cover power ballad than the others are. I remember reading his twitter and he said he was going to put an acoustic version of this on the new album but as far as I know it's not on it. Everyone is also another highlight but the only reason its so good is because it has killer vocals and some funny lyrics to back it up but no real stand out moment in general. The rest of the album is fairly boring but not really bad. And overall we have a really silly album that could have been perfect if he gave it the same amount of production as the Weezer A albums. But its just kind of in the middle now.

so... I read the comments I made (on my americanmusicmachine acct) under the previous review for this album. Christ was (am?) I a terrible commenter. For whatever reason I thought it humorous to pretend this was a good album.

Anyways good review.
