I was blown away by this album. I expected to enjoy it given the positive rating (in the context of weezer) but I did NOT expect to love it. This is just super dynamic and it has an edge that was missing in their previous couple albums, which were just too goofy. The last three trakcs were wild and a great finish to the album. I might have just gone mad by listening to too much weezer :/
I don't even hate this. It's literally fine. At worst this album is painfully mediocre but there are tracks here that I really enjoyed so it didn't feel like a waste of time. There were points where I had to raise an eybrow at the lyrics but at least they felt genuine.
This isn't as good as Blue or Pinkerton. It is, however, still a very good album. The energy is infectious so even if the songs here aren't as cleverly assembled as those on Blue, I still managed to have a lot of fun with every song on the album.
I listened to this relentlessly on release and I'll admit that's the main reason I have such an affinity towards it. It's not that funny, sure, but it has it's moments and just their performances alone are at least amusing to me.
