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.

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.

Another decade, another series of average-at-best Weezer albums. Looking back, I didn't give one single green score to any of '00s Weezer (though Maladroit was close) and Hurley doesn't rectify any of this. At least it recovers from the horror show that was Ratitude.
Rivers sounds generic, though he does still have some decent moments on "Memories" or "Unspoken", nothing stands out as that engaging, and he sounds downright dumb on songs like "Where's My Sex?"
