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.

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.

Let me a paint a picture for you:
You are the face of a legendary rock band. Lately, your last couple of albums have just been misses. You're at a point where you've been the most hated you've ever been. How do you recover from that? Well, let me tell you, Weezer's Hurley is definitely a way to reverse everything you've done. Sure, it's not as amazing as your first couple as albums, but it's definitely a way to start digging yourself out.

Firstly, the album starts with "Memories", ... read more

Hurley isn't a very memorable album but at least he's a good character in Lost. My favorite tracks are Memories and Time Flies.
