Weezer Critics

Wow, so...I regress alot here apparently but I have just read multiple reviews for Weezer's new album "Raditude" and the reviews at their best say that the album is mediocre and at their worst they complain that it isn’t “Pinkerton.” Really? The reason you don’t like the album is because it isn’t “Pinkerton?” Dear god man, get out of your tight red jeans and take off your fake glasses, which I don’t care if they are just an accessory, make you look like a douche bag, and realize that Weezer as a band has become a pop music band that is still a whole lot better than most of the pop charts. The fact that they still play their own instruments and write their own songs is almost enough for me to just like them for doing that, regardless of the quality of their music. The fact that most of the songs on the album are fairly comprehensible and tolerable is an added bonus. So yes, Rivers Cuomo isn’t as witty and subversive as he used to be when you were in high school in the mid 90s, but I cant help but laugh openly at the ridiculousness of the Jermaine Dupri and Lil’ Wayne collaboration ‘Can’t Stop Partying’ which is like Rivers playing a joke on the two hip-hop acts, pointing out just how ludicrous their genre’s mainstream has become. I like that song for that reason, not because it’s actually a good song mind you. And for the most part, fuck, I like it. It’s better than “Make Believe” and it’s going to be something that I won’t delete and lose the disk on purpose like I did with “The Red Album.” And as funny as ‘Pork and Beans’ is, it’s still not elitist rock like the first two disks were. And I love those two albums, don’t get me wrong, but it’s true that they are smart rock n roll, while “Raditude” is less smart pop rock. There’s no edge or anything challenging about them, but I don’t hate something for being overeasily accessible. I like the new album. There, ‘nuff said. Haha, I can’t believe I said ‘nuff said and actually meant it to some degree. Seriously though, I like it for the right reason and it seems many people don’t like it for the wrong reason of comparing it to their other works. Doing that loses the fact that artists change, and we as listeners, should try it sometimes to. If it wasn’t for that, my dad wouldn’t like anything made after Jackson Brown in the 70s.
