Autumn is the third in Weezer's SZNS EP series, and it follows Summer which was a flawed EP, but the symphonic rock and metal elements made it a more novel listen than the very bland Spring. But how would Weezer embody the season of autumn? I guess the answer is danceable 2000s alt rock and power pop a la Strokes and Franz Ferdinand that is occasionally moody. A sound which they pull off well in the intro, "Can't Dance, Don't Ask Me", where they give up the Vivaldi interpolation ... read more

honestly "normal weezer" is the safest thing they can make right now. not saying the band can't experiment, but damn. it feels like they only know how to do one sound sometimes

While Autumn does approach a more natural 'Weezer' aesthetic, the result is still another mixed bag of overly quirky lyrics and unmet potential.

SZNZ: Autumn is decent EP that don't shows nothing special or better that be shown in last 2 EP. Production is ok, vocal still is for me sometimes really annoying and lyrics are in the most of time good.

I’m not sure if either I’m a masochist or if I’m still clinging onto the hope that albums like EWBAITE, White, and OK Human weren’t just flukes and Weezer can make genuinely quality music in this day and age

Favorite track: Francesca
Least favorite track: Get Off On The Pain

Feels like Summer Pt. 2 but just less heavy or Summer B-Sides, not how I expected the sound for Autumn to sound distinct from the last SZNZ. Regardless, songs are really great Weezer material both in catchiness and amazing melodies. Writing always falls flat, but the musical direction Autumn took is pretty amazing.

They actually used Pacific Sunset, so Run, Raven, Run is automatically the best track in this EP.

Favs: Get Off On The Pain, Tastes Like Pain, Run Raven Run

Look, I know they've been interpolating Vivaldi's Seasons on the openers of each of these EP's, but why is "Tastes Like Pain" written to the tune of Vivaldi's Winter? Like the track sounds fine, but like... shouldn't that be on the next EP? Is this subtle commentary on how some people start celebrating Christmas way too early when it's clearly still Autumn? I dunno lol

Anyways, at this rate, Winter is gonna be the best installment in this SZNZ series, because each one of these keeps ... read more

This sure is a Weezer album from the 2020s

It doesn't sound a thing like Autumn

Is this an improvement over SZNZ: Summer? Heck no.
Is this a good album? Heck no.
Have I only rated it higher than what it deserves because I have an unfair bias? Heck yes.

At least they didn't pull a Raditude. Except for the fact that more than 2 songs sound like they're kinda connected with Raditude.

Favourite track: Francesa

Little disappointed in this one. I do like the first 3 tracks, but everything else has fallen flat.

This is a nice return to form for Muse, and so soon after their album album too! Even features some production work from the Killers its cool to see a collaboration like this never thought they'd link up. In all seriousness though SZNZ: Autumn is the best installment in the SZNZ series so far, if Winter follows the pattern of the past few records it should be a perfect 10/10 EP. The highs here are some of Weezer's best work since like California Snow. The inclusion of these sick ass synths and ... read more

πŸ” I mean it's alright, like...

fav track: Tastes Like Pain (would add Run Raven Run, but the music box outro kinda ruined it for me)
least fav: Should She Stay Or Should She Go

I like a few but also don’t care for a few. Probably the best so far though.

Weezer stays weezin

Weezer goes *once again* for a more classic sound on autumn. There some genuinely pretty good songs here and none of them feel forced or awkward like summer. (Although should she stay or should she felt kinda thrown together. I love how this ep sounds like actual songs and not just a bunch of half baked ideas. Overall a really solid effort by the weeze.

“Compliments to the chef, as good as it gets”.

What the Black album should have been (think Living in LA mixed with LA Girlz). Great production and experimentation as well.

edit: OK WHAT THE FUCK WHY IS THE RATING SO LOW, THIS DESERVED BETTER FROM AOTY.

The songs aren't bad, but after I saw the photo for Weezer's Spotify artist page and some album cover arts I couldn't help but feel like a virgin while listening to this, which destroyed my enjoyment

I mean, it isn't bad...
SZNZ: Autumn is a very disappointing way to continue the SZNZ: Series. It's just a less interesting and thematically accurate version of the other two records. Does Weezer not like Autumn or something? The record just feels like a dull SZNZ: Summer, which just doesn't work at all. There are very few parts of this project that I would say I liked. Don't get me wrong, it's alright, bot really nothing in comparison to any of the other EP's they have released this year. The ... read more
