CRITIC REVIEWS

Drowned in Sound

Those who optimistically purchased Make Believe and Raditude will know that a good first single does not a great Weezer album make, but Hurley is packed solid, with a sense of fun and good-time melodies cropping up at every juncture.

PopMatters

Luckily, thanks to some key assists from outside hands, Cuomo rarely falls into the same trap again, and the majority of Hurley is mindless (dare I even say it) fun.

No Ripcord

Reminiscing about their nineties days, Hurley is very much a reawakening towards more confessional material. Though it sounds more imaginary than accurate, Cuomo’s calculated verses remain purposely effortless.

Pitchfork

Nobody is going to confuse this with 1990s Weezer-- there are still plenty of oddball collaborations (Michael Cera, Linda Perry) for one thing-- but the lows aren't as low or as frequent as they were in recent years.

Tiny Mix Tapes

Hurley is, for the most part, chock full of the same mechanical dreck that has peppered Weezer’s last handful of releases, from Maladroit to Raditude.

It feels like they knew they fucked up and decided to write decent music. That does show with some of the tracks here. But while there’s nothing downright terrible here, this definitely feels rushed. Also, that fucking album cover. Like, why?

"Hurley" is a fun, solid and laid-back alternative rock album. Yes, there are significant flaws on this album, but I think Weezer don't give a fuck.

The dude on the cover looks like he's having a great time.

Back to basics: a 10 track record that’s pretty much around half an hour long, signed to a new label and off the back of the band’s worst record, Hurley really couldn’t fail, at least not in comparison to what they had been putting out for the past few years. Also, that album cover is pretty much a repellant to bad vibes so really, everything was in the band’s favour and what we got was….fine, yeah it was fine.

I really can’t pinpoint a horrible moment on ... read more
