Consequence of Sound

It’s like live band karaoke, and everyone is invited, which is all this really boils down to at the end of the day. They’re not reinventing the wheel; they’re using it.


Respectful enough to rouse any struggling family gathering but knowing enough to amuse those in on the joke, ‘The Teal Album’ at once satirises the covers album and makes a decent stab at perfecting it.


The meticulous replications of The Teal Album aren't a million miles away from that notebook, but by having Weezer pop into familiar settings, Cuomo has created a hyper-saturated, uncanny valley, where nothing seems quite real. An ideal album for the internet, in other words.

The Needle Drop

For a covers album orchestrated by a popular rock band, The Teal Album could've turned out much worse.

Drowned in Sound

In spite of all the possible pitfalls Weezer could have faced in its delivery, The Teal Album is a truly pleasant surprise, and one of the most likeable records to have emerged in recent months.

Spill Magazine

On The Teal Album, Weezer delivers an outright hilarious choice of ten faithfully-executed classics for an overall colourful experience. Teal is the colour of a band having pure, shameless fun.

Pretty Much Amazing

For an album with both a Eurythmics cover AND a Black Sabbath cover it’s a surprisingly listenable, albeit pointless entry in their discography, Weezer has spent a decade becoming more interesting to read about than listen to.

Northern Transmissions

The covers never stray from their iconic originals at all, much less enough to warrant the cover’s existence, and the only changes are in tinny or downright annoying transposing/altering of well-known instrumentals, making the album feel immediately enjoyable and just-as-immediately disposable.

Under The Radar

I can understand Weezer forgot long ago what they were good at. I know they've forgotten how to write great songs. But here's the thing-at least they used to make better memes than this.

NOW Magazine

No band with perfect pitch has ever been this tone-deaf.


these bad bitches just melted my semen


You can’t expect a band like this to do any of the original songs justice, even if a few of the songs aren’t very enjoyable to begin with.

Not only does every cover suck, they all feel so lazily re-done. The vocals sound like they’ve been done in the span of five minutes, the synths sound like bargain bin toys, and everything else is pretty bad.

We all know them nowadays to be a meme band full of nerdy boomers who want to be teenagers, and that “meme” ... read more

it's all a joke guys. If it weren't for Africa this album wouldn't exist, so this album was clearly not supposed to be taken seriously.

I quite enjoy these covers actually. I see many faults but they do give their own spin on classic songs. While is a mix of hit or miss it’s something worth listening to. I would have picked different songs especially with ones they really just can’t do lol. Mr Blue Sky though I enjoy better than the original.


they didn't even have the best no scrubs cover of 2019 how tf


They didn't cover the Breaking Bad theme song, nor did they cover Falling In Reverse's "Game Over" song :(
I am very disappointed, Weezer
