i never want to listen to this album again. it was boring and uninspired and just didnt match up to what was in weezer's previous discography. the intrumentals were repetitive and tedious, and at least three of the hooks consisted of "oh oh oh oooooohhh oh oh" and no real words. nothing was new, and the only song i could go back to is beverly hills, and even that makes me cringe.
least fav tracks: this is such a pity, we are all on drugs, my best friend
It sounds like a band that's trying to be Weezer but fails miserably in every song. The start of one of the biggest musical downhills in the history of music.
Make Believe is a big name album for Weezer that is vastly uninspiring and frustrating.
Oh, the misguided Rivers Cuomo.
If he could harness the very reasons Weezer is a quality band (their edgy sound and mainly their adolescent trials in their songwriting, not adolescent appeal), this album would have turned out so much different. It pains me to see Weezer like this. Beverly Hills is a catchy song, that's about it. I am not "On Drugs".
Not only bad as a whole, but also incredibly annoying. Cuomo is a great musician but the problem is that he doesn't know the reasons why, so I feel as if he's misguided. It makes me sad to see this happen. Cuomo could still pull out of the hole he dug for Weezer if he only figured out what made Weezer so great in the first place.
