Biography

In 2014, the conventional wisdom is that the album is dead, and that nobody listens to a record the whole way through. Rivers Cuomo figures there's two ways to respond. "You can change with the times, give in, and not put a lot into your album," he says. "Or you can say that for artistic and creative reasons, we have to try so hard to make this an album people want to listen ... Read more in Amazon's Weezer Store

Customer Reviews

Not one song on here is good.
F. Geist
A few of the songs have dance beats to them, and the lyrical content is mostly about juvenile things like "partying"...this was really disappointing to me.
King P
Well so much for the glimmer of hope that might've been found in the Red Album..... I didn't think Weezer could really sink lower than Make Believe.

The single "Pork and Beans" from their previous album, Red, was written as a response to a meeting Rivers Cuomo had with the record company, in which pressure was applied on making a more commercial sound. He responds to these requests (such as working with trendy musicians to top the charts) by saying, "Imma do the things that I wanna do / I ain't got a thing to prove to you"

Unfortunately, it appears this resistance has worn away. Only three of the ten tracks were written soley by the band. The rest were co-written by folks such as Jermaine Dupre, Dr. Luke, Butch Walker, and the All American Rejects. Depending upon whether or not one considers drummer Josh Freese part of the band, six of the ten tracks feature outside musicians.

Lead single and first track "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To" is quintessential Weezer - an upbeat, accoustic guitar driven rock song with quirky lyrics. After that, though, the album in my opinion starts a free fall, with quite a few generic, seemingly soulless over-produced pop songs. Two late-album tracks try to maintain some artistic integrity with the far east influenced Love Is The Answer and Beach Boys inspired Don't Want To Let You Go.

Having heard many shelved Cuomo demos over the years, it's always unfortunate to hear releases that feature bland songs. There are probably three albums worth of demos that are, in my opinion, vastly superior to a majority of the material released on the last two Weezer releases.

Instead, over-produced generic pop songs seem to be the norm.

First, if you don't think Weezer is being tongue-in-cheek in naming an album "Raditude," you'll probably be in for a disappointment, as anyone who approaches this album with a straight face, so to speak, won't "get it" at all. Anybody who didn't get that the "boo-yah" in the song Everybody Get Dangerous (off the Red Album) was SUPPOSED to sound really feeble and cheesy because the characters in the song were just that (feeble and cheesy), won't get the songs on Raditude. Hey, song titles like "I'm Your Daddy" and "Girl Got Hot" are exactly what they suggest. Cheesy. Did I mention they're also extremely catchy?

Raditude sounds like an album based around Weezer's earlier hit song Beverly Hills, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, because A) that song is really catchy, and B) we finally get album continuity. That song had no business being on Make Believe, and, though full of good songs, The Red Album doesn't really feel like an ALBUM. Raditude feels like a complete album though--almost a modern update of the Green Album. Just like the Green Album, Raditude starts off with the best song on the album, 'I Want You To.' I can already tell this song will be in my rotation for a long time. The whole first half of the album is some of the most listen-able, catchiest music Weezer has ever written.

Unfortunately, the album stumbles a bit in the latter half. "Love Is The Answer" doesn't really do it for me, and, even though it's not a serious song, I really don't care for "In the Mall" either. Small stumbles aside, Raditude is an album worthy of being added to your Weezer collection. Die hard fans who think that pre-Green Album Weezer is the only true Weezer and everything else is trash will NOT like this album. It's very possible to like both though.

If Weezer have spent the past decade working their hardest to pump out as many albums and hits as possible, than "Raditude," the band's seventh studio offering, is the after-party. True to typical Weezer fashion, it's a polarizing album that will no doubt leave the band's fanbase scratching their heads while simultaneously spawning several radio hits.

While the quality and consistency of the album may not have you jumping for joy like the dog that graces the album cover, there is certainly something here for everyone. Longtime fans will appreciate the somewhat true-to-form "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To" and "Put Me Back Together." The latter, co-written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler of pop-punk outfit The All-American Rejects is the same kind of heart-on-the-sleeve rocker that made the band such a cult success way back when.

Elsewhere, though, the band takes twists and turns never heard before. Collaborating with Lil' Wayne for "Can't Stop Partying" is an idea that sounds terrible on paper but surprisingly makes for one of the most inspired moments on the album. While on the surface it comes off as a synth-laden party anthem, what is revealed upon closer inspection is a hint of irony that makes the song seem, well, sad.

Likewise, the sleaze-rock of "The Girl Got Hot" and the good-time feel of "I'm Your Daddy" seem superficial on the surface until Rivers reveals himself to be slyly mocking and somewhat paying tribute to sounds and styles not normally embraced. Afterall, this is the man who once confessed his love of nu-metallers Drowning Pool and Limp Bizkit and who wrote a song for Crazy Town.

According to Wikipedia, the deluxe edition contains these bonus tracks:

"Get Me Some"
"Run Over by a Truck"
"The Prettiest Girl in the Whole Wide World"
"The Underdogs"

It appears that these tracks are on the second CD. I don't know why they wouldn't just...

I have had the same issue with this. I buy vinyl because it sounds better and because I love having the big inserts with photos and lyrics. No insert! No download link for MP3's! WTF Weezer?!
