Bad Religion Suffer
Bauhaus In the Flat Field
One of the most influential albums in the entire canon of post-punk acts that swept across Britain in the early 1980s, Bauhaus created the blueprint for gothic post-punk on their debut release. Yet still after all these years, nothing has ever sounded anything quite like Bauhaus or this album, and it holds up just as aggressive, emotional, abrasive, and brilliant as ever. The vocals range from soft whispering to Peter Murphy screaming his lungs out while the guitar has a gothic drone effect that cannot be matched. Yet somehow on songs like "St. Vitus Dance", they take all of these things and make it DANCEABLE! Truly a landmark album and one of the best of the initial onslaught of post-punk acts, highlights include the amazing "St. Vitus Dance", "Stigmata Martyr", "In the Flat Field" and "Double Dare". If you have even a passing interest in gothic music and/or post-punk, you need this album immediately.

Of course it helps when you're joined by the likes of Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Linda Ronstadt, Etta James and many more at various points. rOne of the best live albums ever, capturing a legendary performance.

A nearly flawless collection of most of Donovan's best material, it's just one classic after another here, not a single weak spot to be found. Essential listening for anyone with an interest in the folk and psychedelic rock scenes of the 60s and early 70s. Absolute magic.

The greatest record of 1985 and possibly the entire decade that no one heard. "Anything, Anything" is a legitimate contender for the single greatest rock song ever written and the rest of the album absolutely blazes with energy, melodicism, and a special kind of punk energy only comparable to similar alternative bands of the time like the Replacements or Husker Du. "Emerald City" will haunt you for weeks on end, as elegant and beautiful a song you will ever hear.rHyperbolic? Perhaps. But this album is really that damned good.

The best post-hardcore record of 2004, this album basically is what got me into the genres of post-hardcore, mathcore and screamo in the first place. Every single song is amazing, no way I could ever give this album anything less than a 5. One of the crowning achievements of the entire last decade of punk and metal music in my humble opinion, a classic in every sense of the word.

A tour-de-force of 1980's pop with a new wave edge and the almost care-free brilliance of ex-English beat members Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger. Nearly as good as the Beat were at their best, there isn't a moment wasted on this album from the inescapably catchy hit single "Tenderness" to the laid-back cool of tracks like "Never You Done That" or the driving, heart-on-it's-sleeve anthem "Are You Leading Me On?" there really isn't a moment wasted here. Highest recommendation for any fans of new wave, the Beat, fans of 80s music or anyone looking for an achingly catchy pop album. Oh and did I mention that Mick Jones, freshly booted from The Clash, plays lead guitar for half the album (including most of the singles)?

Led Zeppelin How the West Was Won
A serious contender for the greatest live album ever. Everything that made Led Zeppelin the most acclaimed and popular rock band of the 70s as well as one of the most heralded live acts ever can be found within this triple album---the unGodly long jams that routinely went 20-30 minutes yet never got boring for a second, Bonham making his case as the greatest rock drummer ever on his definitive track "Moby Dick", Jimmy Page shredding guitars with violin bows and proving himself as one of the preeminent rock guitarists ever, Jones driving bass lines, and Robert Plant's soaring vocals that define 70s rock as a whole, everything there was to love about this band can be found in the depths of this remarkable album. A must-have for anyone with even a passing interest in that "rock and roll" thing.
Less Than Jake Pezcore
Not only LTJ's best work, but also one of the best ska albums ever produced, period. The guitar work is uber catchy, the melodies are fantastic, the horns are great, and almost every single song is a winner. It's also far and away their most overtly punk album. Liquor Store, My Very Own Flag, Growing Up on a Couch, and Johnny Quest Thinks We're Sellouts are some of the strongest material the band ever recorded. A borderline classic for some, a beloved favorite to me. Also outstanding summer music, like a lot of ska.

There are not enough superlatives for me to heap onto this project so that I could adequately pay justice to the quality and power of the music and this film, so I'll just simply say that this is a "classic" in every definitive sense of that word. This is a time capsule into one of the most important eras of of rock music, and it encapsulates everything that there was and is to love about Cobain and Nirvana all at once with a perfectly performed set of some of their greatest songs. This is the type of concert that legends are, and have been, made of. Happy Halloween Kurt.

Worth any price of admission for the fully electric cover of David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World". As someone who has obsessively listened to this band for 20 years and thought there were no hidden gems left, I was wrong. Dead wrong. The guitar shreds and soars and both Kurt and Pat Smear absolutely kill it in an almost unfathomable way. Throw in Kurt's flawed-yet-utterly-perfect vocal harmonies towards the end and you have one of the band's absolute best live performances ever. Oh, and everything else on here is amazing. The band at their creative peak, kicking ass and taking names like only they could.

Honestly just trying to explain how much this album means to me on a personal level is likely impossible, so all you really need to know is that this is some of the most beautiful, melodic, haunting, dark, and cathartic music to come out of the last 20 years. Brian Molko is inimitable and "Pure Morning", "Brick Shithouse" and obviously "Every You Every Me" are some of his best songs.

Their absolute best work, this is Rise Against at their melodic hardcore best. Everything about this album stands out from the instruments to McIlrath's half-screamed half-crooned vocals and absolutely mesmerizing lyrics, there isn't a weak point to this entire album. "My Life Inside Your Heart" may be the best song RA ever wrote, as it refuses anything less than tearing into your heart and psyche. One of the best modern punk records, period.

Incendiary early 90s emo punk before the genre became a joke. Right on par with the best of Jawbreaker, Sunny Day Real Estate, early Jimmy Eat World, or the Get Up Kids, if not better. More alternative punk than emo in some ways musically but lyrically it hits hard emotionally, which is only heightened in effect by the absolutely stellar vocals and ridiculously melodic songs. Good luck getting half of this album unstuck out of your head immediately after listening. One of the best albums I've discovered recently and clearly I'm late to the party but man this is still so underrated. Capsized, Stepson, and She's a Part of Me all should have been massive radio hits.

Soundgarden Badmotorfinger
A serious candidate for the best grunge record the 90s ever produced, Soundgarden's third album saw the band break out from their Seattle peers in a way only Nirvana or Pearl Jam could claim similar paths to. Just like Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Pearl Jam' "Ten", "Badmotorfinger" is both a slice of it's time and timeless, truly a masterpiece in the world of alternative rock, highlights include...well almost every single track is a highlight really, but "Room a Thousand Years Wide" may just be Soundgarden and Chris Cornell at their very darkest and best. An amazing album that belongs in everyone's collection.

The judgments of "Yeah it's amazing but it leaves out SOOO MUCH" is bullshit, judge an album on it's merits, you realize if we were to make a true "Best of the Beatles" album it would be roughly 173 songs long over about 10 discs right? And even that would still piss some people off. rIt's 27 of literally the greatest songs ever written, with the added benefit of containing some of their very best early singles that were never included on their albums (like the classics "Love Me Do" and "She Loves You"). How anyone could give this anything but a 5 with a straight face is beyond me.

A landmark classic of the entire spectrum of punk, this is both The Exploited and punk rock in general at it's finest, combining incredible little melodies with a raw, blistering form of British punk results in some not only the finest Exploited songs, but some of the best punk songs ever (like "Alternative"). rHighly recommended for anyone with ears and an interest in punk. Truly a classic.
The Go-Go's Beauty and the Beat
An absolute classic of new wave and alternative music of the 1980s, there isn't a solitary wasted moment on the entire LP from the catchy singles "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got the Beat" to the slow-burning rocker "Lust to Love", this is all gold. I legitimately could count on one hand the number of better songs in the 1980s than "Lust to Love", it's that amazing and brilliant.rTruly a classic album, deserving of the five star rating without a doubt. 80s new wave and pop simply did not get any better than this, and neither did the Go-Go's.

Will forever remember the two albums I bought while visiting Disney World when I was thirteen (maybe fourteen?), a best of Bob Dylan compilation, and The Smith's Singles. Walking around with my headphones on or on shuttles between parks this incredible music streamed into my ears unlike anything I had ever heard before. The guitar, my god, THE GUITAR...I never knew something could be so fucking catchy and melodic, yet sad and desperate. Morrissey's lyrics enchanted me and by the end of the trip I had discovered a new favorite band. There are better albums, sure, but this one is the most nostalgic for me.

I am appalled by some of the things respected members of this community have said about this album, and how frustratingly wrong they are. This is a classic album in every sense of the word, from the incredibly melodies of "She Bangs the Drums" to the epic magnum opus of rock and roll that is "I Am the Resurrection", this is a classic album in every sense of the word. Don't let the pseudo hipsters who have to go against whatever NME is saying this week try to convince you otherwise, this is a landmark of British rock music and an absolutely STUNNING record from start to finish.

This album is a classic and a must-have for any fan of punk or hardcore, as is most of this group's discography. Get it. Now.

It's astounding that songs as absolutely ridiculous as "The Day Lassie Went to the Moon" or their big hit "Take the Skinheads Bowling" could be so mind-blowingly catchy and listenable. One word best describes this entire record, and it's fun. A landmark indie record of the 80s.

Kid Cudi Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager
It's everything we could have hoped for and so much more. Dark, brooding, experimental, effervescent and ultimately brilliant. This is somehow an even more personal record than his first, reflecting the personal troubles that Cudi has experienced since his first album (mainly his cocaine addiction), and you can hear the sadness, desperation, bravado and torment Cudi releases from his very soul on almost every track. I think it's safe to say this is not only Cudi's best work to date, it's one of the finest hip-hop albums to be released in years.

A superb collection of New Order/Depeche Mode influenced darkwave, really creative stuff that engages you from start to finish with nary a misstep. "Close" and "Skin" would feel right at home on Technique-era New Order, and I mean that in the best possible way because they're amazing songs that make you just want to get up and dance, but almost in a bittersweet manner. Stellar album from an underrated group that carries the torch of the 80s darkwave flame into the 21st century, this is their best release and a forgotten gem.

Remo Drive Greatest Hits
No doubt the influence of 90s emo is all over this band and they absolutely do throw a good deal of that style of music and lyricism into the album, but I'd hate for someone to think this is like a Sunny Day Real Estate tribute or something because this is absolutely a dance-punk record first and foremost before it's an emo record. The lyrics are emotional and biting (and occasionally simplistically brilliant in their familiarity) and there are definitely somber moments and influences through out, but there are also a bunch of REALLY catchy songs full of just the right amount of angst that will make you want to dance and shout the lyrics along.rOne of the best new groups in 2017 I've discovered, thanks Sputnik.

Soundtrack (Film) Colors
Amazing slice of late 80s hip hop at it's absolute best. The title track by Ice-T is one of the early gangsta rap anthems and still one the very best, and all over this soundtrack are some of the best artists at the time like Big Daddy Kane, Eric B & Rakim, Kool G. Rap, MC Shan, etc. Includes the infamous Coldcut remix of "Paid in Full" that's an amazing slice of late 80s hip hop DJ work at it's finest. The only thing holding this album back is a goofy attempt at dub sung by none other than the star of the film Sean Penn, under the guise of the "Decadent Dub Team". Otherwise, a nearly perfect soundtrack for a great film that accurately represents the true "sounds of the street" at the time.

Absolutely incredible grunge/punk from the Washington area late 80s/early 90s, a magical scene and time, one of the most underrated groups of that era, a huge influence on the burgeoning riot grrl movement not to mention the female grunge bands of the time like 7 Year Bitch, L7, babes in Toyland, etc. Mia Zapata's tragic and senseless murder is one of rock and roll's lesser known tragedies, and it's a shame, because she and the Gits were amazing. Cut My Skin, It Makes Me Human is stellar. Really the whole album is. Rest in Peace Mia.

Don't dismiss this group for their silly haircuts and one-hit-wonder status, this is one of the absolute best new wave albums of the 80s.

Not their strongest album, but the Blondie formula is introduced here with it's punk aggression, new wave instrumentation and bubblegum pop-minded songwriting.

While some might see Ceremony's shift from violent modern hardcore to the more melodic hardcore of the early 1980s as a regression, it winds up being Ceremony's best record to date as they progress as songwriters by leaps and bounds. This is without a doubt the best punk record of 2010, and an album that would feel right at home on your shelf next to copies of classic Black Flag and Circle Jerks records.

Candidate for their best record yet, with the added benefit of being bloody danceable of all things. Vibrant, sweeping, epic, triumphant, perhaps even a little bit transcendent. This is music to listen to while soaring over an electric Paris night sky. Even a random cameo appearance by Rihanna of all people works. Proper review on the way when this is released in the US/UK.

An incredible hodge-podge of previously recorded material from one of Australia's most talented new young songwriters.

Keep your eyes on this one.

How can you not love an album featuring the line "I'm glad that Lincoln got bucked in the face, we shoulda been free in the first place"? Over the top mix of early 90s g-funk with a political side, but all very angry and nihilistic. The title track is a classic example of the early 90s West Coast gangsta rap sound. Worth noting that Ice Cube, who produced the album, is featured on several songs along with an appearance by B-Real of Cypress Hill.

Damn shame no one remembers the original Fleetwood Mac, the Peter Green fronted version that was probably one of the best damn white blues bands to ever play. Songs like "Shake Your Moneymaker" and "My Heart Beat Like a Hammer" are raw blues-rock at it's absolute finest. Great album that's right up there with any other blues revival rock being produced at the time. Green was such a guitar virtuoso he allegedly even gave BB King the cold sweats upon seeing him live.

While it isn't particularly the best hardcore record, it's certainly one of the most important and a hidden gem for any fans of punk rock.

Paul Simon Paul Simon
Garfunkel who?

Paul Simon's debut is practically a tangible explosion of creative energy and musicianship from one of the great songwriters of the 60s. Gone are the elegant ballads of Bridge Over Troubled Water, as the opening track "Mother and Child Reunion" is an incredible reggae song (and a Top 5 hit in both the US and the UK) that lets you know from the get-go that Simon had far-ranging eclectic interests beyond the folk-rock he had been known for. He mixes a certifiable maelstrom of music mixing reggae, folk, country, blues, psychedelic rock and pop and proved from the beginning that he had so much more to offer the world after the split of Simon & Garfunkel. This is simply an extraordinary record, and one of the few solo records to have succeeded both commercially and critically as well as Paul Simon did.

The first LP from one of the finest folk acts of the 60s, Peter, Paul, and Mary's self titled debut is an historically important and wonderfully crafted album highlighted by the immortal folk classic "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?", as beautiful and somber as folk has ever been with a timely political message.

"Mother of Pearl" is quite possibly Roxy Music's finest moment, an absolute stunning epic love song that manages to have not one but two distinct and incredible arrangements amidst the flurry of Ferry's majestic, soaring voice. There are other great moments on this album as well, from the near-punk of "Street Life" to the achingly beautiful ballad "A Song for Europe", this is yet another classic album in the canon of what very well may have been the most important rock band of the 1970s (in terms of pushing the rules and boundaries of the artform).

Slick Rick's real return to hip-hop after his prison sentence, complete with all star production and guest spots everywhere. Rick's flow is as impeccable as ever, and the production is deeper and richer than his classic first album even if the rhymes aren't always up to the same quality as his old work. You don't go to Rick for lyricism though, you go to him for style, and he's got it in spades here. Underrated album.

The Get Up Kids Something to Write Home About
The Get Up Kids There Are Rules
People giving this a low rating for not being like their older stuff is just bullshit. This is quite possibly their most cohesive and engaging album ever, it grabs you right at the start with the frenetic, nervous energy of "Regent's Court" before doing a total 180 and making their most whimsical and synth-laden song ever in "Shatter Your Lungs", which almost reminds me of good chillwave. Be forewarned, this is a very different band from the emo/pop-punk unit they started out as all those years ago with beloved albums like Four Minute Mile and Something to Write Home About. But that's not a bad thing. These guys have matured, they've grown up, and they've expanded their musical vocabulary. You should do the same and give this album a chance, you won't regret it.

It's every band from the 80s that you loved, through the drug haze-laced spectacles of the Britpop movement, with a dash or two of classic punk thrown in for good measure. In other words, it's mesmerizing and a contender for album of the year.
The Human League Dare!
The Isley Brothers Givin' It Back
Sick of seeing one white artist after another take their original songs and make them hits with cover versions, the Isley Brothers decided to return the favor and produce an album of cover songs. Of course, it's fucking incredible and puts many of the originals to complete shame. Their version of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's "Ohio" in particular is just electric, taking an already incredible song and turning it into a psychedelic funk soul freak out of truly epic proportions. One of the most consistently excellent albums the band produced during this period.

The Smithereens Especially For You
A sorely forgotten gem and noted influence on Kurt Cobain's writing of the album Nevermind, this is the debut and ultimately best release of the forgotten 80s alternative/college rock group The Smithereens. This is alternative rock with huge hooks and serious nods back to the groups of the British Invasion, and songs like "Blood and Roses", "Behind the Wall of Sleep", and "Time and Time Again" are so catchy and irresistible it's remarkable they weren't major hits.

Do yourself a favor and give this a listen, highly recommended for fans of alternative rock.

The Von Bondies Pawn Shoppe Heart
Excellent sophomore effort from the Detroit garage-punk outfit, headlined by the spectacular, blazing single "C'mon C'mon", which may be best remembered as the theme song of the television series Rescue Me. There are many other high points to the album however, the neo-glam sheen of "No Regrets", the Gun Club-esque punk-blues of "Poison Ivy" and the swampy-stomp of "The Fever" help carry this album to memorable status. Definitely worth checking out for any self-respecting fan of indie and rock music.
The Von Bondies Love Hate And Then There's You
It's great to see after nearly 5 years and several lineup changes that The Von Bondies still have something great to offer the public, and that's extremely hooky Detroit-based garage rock with more than a touch of punk, although this album definitely scales that influence down a bit. A much more polished affair than it's predecessors and certainly more pop-oriented, the album only excels because of these facts and the group deliver a batch of some of their finest songs to date, including the sublime trio of "Pale Bride", "I Don't Wanna", and "Earthquake". They may never top "C'mon C'mon", but this is the group's most consistent and focused release to date.

Highly recommended.

Traffic Mr. Fantasy
Dear Mr. Fantasy is absolutely one of the best songs of the '60s. The rest of the album
doesn't quite reach that high again, but it's still excellent stuff and it's easy to see why
Steve Winwood was such a force in music in the late 60s and early 70s (though we still
haven't forgiven you for your 80s solo work Mr. Winwood, even if Dennis Reynolds loves it.
Okay, fuck it, "Higher Love" is a catchy 80s slice of guilty pleasure tripe, but really,
what the fuck were you thinking?).

This generation's modern chameleon of rock and roll changes his colors again, this time trying his hand at dirty, sexy, funk music, and as usual he succeeds with flying colors, spinning out another pair of gem singles in the album opener "Sexx Laws" and "Mixed Bizness". The horn section goes wild in an almost Motown fashion, Beck's guitar work has never been catchier and he even manages to impress vocally, showing range he had previously never shown in his singing voice. Yet another home run for one of the greatest artists of the last twenty years.
Ben Harper Fight For Your Mind
Berlin Pleasure Victim
Berlin's breakthrough LP is harrowing early 80s synthpop at it's most exploitative, but also at it's finest. Songs like "The Metro" and "Sex (I'm a...)" are definitive songs in the realm of synthpop and new wave. Though best remembered for their smash hit "Take My Breath Away" from the Top Gun soundtrack, this is their best work and is a must-have for any fan of synthpop and/or new wave.

Danny Brown's debut album lives up to the street hype. Tony Yayo's Detroit-based protege sounds confident and assured on every track while he delivers rapid-fire lines musing on everything from Super Nintendo games to drug dealing. The beats are consistently engaging, the production is slick yet still maintains the feeling of an underground release, and there's nary a weak moment to be found. Keep your eyes on Mr. Danny Brown from Detroit ladies and gentlemen, because he has big things in his future and his debut album is a rousing success on almost every front.

A wonderfully fun and eclectic debut from one of the most versatile bands of it's era, Fishbone's titular EP is more straight-forward ska than the crazy mixture of ska, funk, punk, metal, and rap they'd become known for, but it also contains some of their strongest material. "Party at Ground Zero" is a joyous ska anthem.

Some of the best music they've ever made, if not the best. The lyrics remain a bit amateurish and sophomoric, but they make up for it in spades with the performances on each song. Perhaps this band can finally win over some of the more ardent post-hardcore/emo fans with this EP. Or maybe not. Either way, it's a great little record and "Hate" might be the best song they've ever made.
Heatmiser Dead Air
Much more grunge, metal, and punk tinged than their later stuff, and definitely more dominated by Neil Gust's songwriting, but that's actually a good thing. Elliott shows up from time to time but you can tell this was Neil's band at this point, and it works honestly. They could be labeled queercore for some of the songs where Neil is open about his sexuality, but really, that label doesn't fit because this is hardly Pansy Division or The Queers. More aggressive than anything else they released, and full of melodic, punky riffage.

"Crystal" starts the album off with a bang as it's the best song New Order has recorded in over a decade when it was released in 2001. The rest of the album delivers the goods as well, showing a spirited, reinvigorated group of musicians returning to their roots and producing some of their very best songs in many years in the process. Highly recommended for both New Order fans and newcomers alike. Also worth noting that Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame and Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream fame have guest appearances on the album, Corgan's in particular is excellent.

OMC How Bizarre
A wonderful record that unfortunately isn't remembered as much as it should be outside of OMC's native New Zealand. Everyone remembers the smash hit "How Bizarre", and it remains one of the best pop songs of the 90s with a carefree summertime feeling to it that permeates every facet of this record, making the entire album a pleasure to listen to. OMC mixes rock, rap, electronica, and even worldbeat and folk while always maintaining a keen and structured pop songwriting sensibility. A nostalgic gem from the 90s that has remained a part of my playlist for many years.

This is the Radiohead I love. Experimental, beautiful, haunting, emotional. As great as the group is I've always found them a bit overrated, feeling that their epic ballads were sometimes quite sterile, but this album just clicked with me from start to finish. While some say it's a return to the Kid A sound, it's more than that, it's a progression of that and it's both fresh and unique. There are some amazing songs on here, mainly "Bloom", "Codex", and "Separator", but all of the songs are good really. Maybe it helps that I first listened to it on a rainy Monday afternoon so the downtempo mood was appropriate. rTheir best since Amnesiac.

Great representation of what The Stones were all about in their early days, which was working-class rhythm and blues. You really won't find a better collection of cover songs from this era or any, raw rock and roll at it's finest. I toyed with a 4.5 and a 5 rating, but then I remembered the absolute brilliance of "Tell Me", one of the Stones very first original songs that plays like The Ronettes were a rock and roll band and I had to go ahead and give this album the full five star treatment. Before the legend of the Rolling Stones, there was this---the dirty, funky rock and roll band.

Cashis The County Hound EP
Don't listen to "TheIllmatics", this is a solid debut EP from a talented young artist. He deals with the same cliched gangster-isms of the hardcore rap genre, true, but he does it with a flair a dark sense of realism that is reminiscent of the work of Notorious B.I.G. in a way, particularly on the spectacular track "Thoughts of Suicide". There are hints of true artistry and complexity through-out this EP, and it gives me great hope for the future of this rapper. Highly recommended to all serious hip-hop fans, especially those who enjoy the works of Eminem, Biggie, Tupac, Dre, and all the other hardcore rap classics.

Rockwell Somebody's Watching Me
Fun and all kinds of funky, Rockwell's Somebody's Watching Me is one heck of a fun relic from the 80s, mixing up rock, soul, dance, and R&B under the Motown label to create a well-crafted album of tunes to dance to. It helps when Michael Jackson sings the hook of your single ("Somebody's Watching Me") and it hits number one for five weeks straight on the R&B charts as well. The paranoid single is undoubtedly the highlight, but the whole album is worth a spin if you're feeling nostalgic for the 80s.

"Two Princes" is one of those songs that is so unabashedly catchy and melodic and poppy that it blew up, was played 12,000 times per day on every radio station on the planet for a few years, and then became a bit of a pop culture joke, one of those songs that everyone has heard so many times that we've all come to an unspoken agreement to never, ever listen to it again. Kind of like "Stairway to Heaven", or "Smells Like Teen Spirit". rBut if I hear it on the radio, I still stop every time and sing along. It's just one of those songs, y'know? Try as hard as you want to hate it, it's never going to work. Just surrender to the cheesy doo-wop pop bliss and go about your day.

Average late 90s/early 00's post grunge/radio rock, but "Lit Up" is a real ass-kicker and fist-pumper (and also basically just a love song to cocaine).

Weezer Make Believe
Aside from "This is Such a Pity" (which is an excellent throwback to 80s power-pop new wave) and maybe "Perfect Situation", this is without a doubt Weezer's worst work to date. Still worth checking out for those two previously mentioned songs, but don't expect anything else to be anything but mediocre. Still though, even mediocre Weezer is better than your average modern radio-rock group so it's not a complete waste of your time.

I could go into detail about all of the things that make this group and particularly this album so unfathomably vapid, obnoxious, stupid, and borderline offensive (not morally, but artistically and culturally) but instead I'll just say this...rKill it with fire.
