I almost wish White never existed, because now I have the task of listening to everything Weezer puts out on the off chance that it might be good.

"Die you zombie bastards!" is what I keep thinking to myself every time there are news about this band.

Is it weird if I say that "White" is better than "Black"?

They need to stop singing about LA. It’s a shite hole.

The album is so trash that the band covered themselves with trash bags for the album cover.

2.0 poorNic Renshaw | November 26th 18

Undoubtedly, Weezer have come up with a creative and interesting batch of tunes on this, their fifth self-titled album.

*EDIT* sixth. their... sixth self-titled album

I thought I’d get a new audience and forgot that disco sucked"

Seems that he is back at it now...

Second thoughts - stick to the cover versions

2.0 poorLucman | February 27th 19

Weezer continue being Weezer. What that means is that you'll have a record that's filled quarter-way with somewhat enjoyable material and the rest with songs that make you wanna rip your hair out. The sad thing is, at this point, I just don't care. This isn't disappointing anymore.

3.0 goodGoldenGuy444 | January 25th 19

Its actually pretty good. Can't Knock the Hustle is the most memorable with its funky production and uncharacteristically profane lyrics. It's weird-ness makes it the best on the album. High As a Kite and Piece of Cake both have very airy instrumentals lead by uplifting melodies and a poppy-sweet performance by Rivers. Byzantine sounds like a sElf song, with its strange chord progression and its very wordy lyrics, this is not particularly a bad thing considering it is solid if not exactly high reaching. Solid album, not amazing, but its not bad either.

2.0 poorJames Enwright | September 17th 19

Yikes - this album has always rubbed me the wrong way, but at this point it?s become easily one of my least favourite Weezer albums. While Pac Daydream had some godawful songs, it also had some standouts, and overall I defiantly didn?t hate it as much as everyone else. This thing? This is like the opposite of EWBAITE - a fantastic album with an epic scope and tonnes of passion and heart. Every song on Black feels super slow, there are plenty of terrible instrumental and production choices (what is with the drum machines?), there is zero passion or spontaneity, and the whole thing just feels so clunky and soulless. Occasionally there is some style or substance, like on ?Can?t Knock the Hustle,? and ?High as a Kite,? but I really hope Van Weezer injects some life back into this band, because this album just did nothing for me.

1.5 very poorDoublez38 | July 7th 19

Personally, I find that there are many groups/solo artists with great careers (who are sometimes legends for some) who persevere to stay alive by regularly delivering turnips. Weezer is one of the most striking examples. Apart from Everything Will Be Alright in the End and a not bad The White Album, Weezer has been suffering from disappointments and very average albums since Pinkerton. There is probably some material to make a little best of post-90's, but for me it's often the approach that makes them turn upside down. As on Black Album, the band has in mind to propose an ultra commercial rock by going to vampirize what is done by other bands and other genres. Here they have almost no foot in the rock that made their identity.

Feels like I'm listening to a cheap version of Twenty-One Pilots... Thanks but not thanks.

Bump

3.5 greatNathaniel | March 1st 19

This has warmed up significantly to me. But it's just Pacific Daydream part 2, instead of what we all wanted.

Bump

3.0 goodDrbebop | March 1st 19

I?m sick of defending this fucking band. Album was alright but they literally scrapped a whole record because that fucking Africa cover blew up

Bump

2.5 averageDDDeftoneDDD | March 1st 19

Well...only not poor because they remain unpretentious and somewhat pop enjoyable...

Bump

2.5 averageWatchItExplode | March 1st 19

Weezer throw everything against the wall and create and ooey, gooey sticky mess leaving me to clean it up.

Bump

3.5 greatspatulagrass | March 1st 19

Not the worst iteration of Weezer, more subdued, but some pretty synths and tones throughout.
