Weezer - The White Album (HD Album ARt)

Weezer (White Album)

Star Rating: 5/5

Tracks: 10

Overview

What's not to love when Weezer drops a new album? Depends on the album, you might say. Well, the "white" album by Weezer avoids repeating some of the band's previous blunders. This iteration of their campy, playful sound boasts several radio hits and marks a return to the band confidently expanding its discography. An overall commercial success, it was equal parts crowd pleaser and trailblazer.

Top Tracks & Album Takeaways

The singles are "Thank God For Girls", "Do You Wanna Get High?", and "King Of The World". The most eclectic song, however, is the more overlooked "Wind In Our Sail", an ode to Darwin and his travels to the Galapagos islands, a theme that repeats throughout the album. It will also remind the careful listener of The Cars' style. It is certainly great to have our boys doing their thing even in 2016!

"(Girl We Got A) Good Thing" is a cute love song that is written in the classic Weezer format. "Jacked Up" and "Endless Bummer" are two more that will have you remembering the band in their glory days, with a modern twist!

What we liked

If we haven't made it clear, this ten trackĀ album has us begging for more. It is a mix you can listen to all the way through. It has diversity in songwriting that keeps the pace fresh.

Not so much...

"Summer Elaine and Drunk Dori" is not palatable. The key change is awkward and makes it hard for most people to appreciate it. The lyrics are also disjointed and experimental, not in a good way.

Conclusion

If you're looking for Weezer to really get "back to the shack", the "white" album is your best bet. Solos dripping with gain and innovative rock chord patterns launched this album into the top three Weezer albums, and possibly the best rock album of 2016. These California kids know how to shred!
