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

Product Description

Amazon.com

Weezer, those geek rockers who topped mid-'90s charts with those oh-so-precious pop fables "Undone (The Sweater Song)" and "Buddy Holly," were almost undone by 1997's bombastic Pinkerton. Their sophomore release turned its back on the band's clean-cut debut, with a thrash approach more influenced by Sabbath and Kiss than the Beach Boys. On their third album (self-titled, like their first, but referred to as the "Green Album"), the band makes a concentrated effort to return to anthemic '60s punky pop, demonstrating that, for Weezer at least, it's rather easy being green. In fact, one could say they're almost as green as Green Day, especially on "Knockdown Dragout." At their best, Weezer show such boundless energy and gleeful aplomb that you'd swear you were listening to a lost Badfinger album. Conversely, Rivers Cuomo's twisted genius makes its way onto the anxious and paranoid "Hash Pipe" and the jittery "Glorious Days," making the "Green Album" the most absorbing and rounded vision from these pop masters yet. --Jaan Uhelszki

Customer Reviews

The album is short, but that is good because every song is just right.
C. R. Collins
If you like weezer's other albums and you have some music taste - I am almost positive this album will not appeal to you.
Percy DaCat
I recommend this CD highly to any fan of punk, or if you just like Weezer.

Some reviewers have expressed a measure of ambivalence about this new Weezer album, and understandably so: it downplays some of the things the band's audience has come to expect and treasure.
Weezer's first record was a kind of dream come true for a certain type of bespectacled nerd--- the sort who plays Dungeons & Dragons, reads comic books, and worships Kiss (the band whose emboldening machismo is only complemented, for such listeners, by a makeup job worthy of the X-Men). For a legion of these dispossessed and marginalized geeks, "In the Garage" was an anthem, and "Only in Dreams," "Buddy Holly," and "Undone" were catchy love songs that spoke to their eccentricities.
"Pinkerton," with a raw sound that aped, according to Rivers Cuomo, the Steve Albini recording style, was a different expression of love, but it was aimed squarely at the same audience. The comic book-reading, Kiss-loving D&D player is often characterized by morbid sensitivity: for such a person (I speak from experience), love provides an idealized exaltation, and is worth clinging to and preserving at all costs, but when it goes sour (as it always does), it creates the kind of hurt that endures, that scars permanently. "Pinkerton," by comparison to the debut, was a cut nerve; it was a hypersensitive adolescent's cry of pain at lost love. With its bitterness ("Why Bother?"), its fantasies of unreal and childlike love objects in galaxies far, far away ("Across the Sea") and its tearful tales of clinging to love even when it is unhealthy to do so ("No Other One"), the record's bombastic evocations of loss hit home with anyone for whom the loss of a love was a vision of the Apocalypse.

Weezer had taken a hiatus after their masterful second album, Pinkerton. That album was much harsher than their HUGELY successful debut. This comeback effort is more in the power-pop mold, and despite what the "cool" hipsters think, that's a good thing. This is a fun record, with a sunny sound that stands out from today's sludge of generic woe-is-me bands. The songs are there, the vocal melodies are great and the lyrics are cool (as River's always makes sure they are). The formulaic guitar solos are the only slight knock on this album, but they're not BAD, just not too original; they basically play the vocal melody over again. Hash Pipe and Island In the Sun were the hits, but O Girlfriend, Glorious Day, Photograph are all great too. This album top to bottom is awesome, a huge step on the way back for the Weez. Don't believe the hype and feel the summer love!

Weezer return after five years. I disagree with the band claiming the record is somewhere "between Pinkterton and the blue album", though I wish it were true. Production-wise, it's extremely sharp, very similar to the blue album. Musically, the songs on the green album are half as complex (as Pinkterton, at least). The solos (almost all of them) are simply the vocal melody churned out on guitar. Rivers can shred on guitar, but he totally opted not to on this album. Lyrically, it seems practically without meaning. Considering it's Weezer, and their prior song topics and lyrics, this album is weak by comparison. Not that they are BAD lyrics, they are simply pop lyrics. (Rivers himself is quoted saying that "the lyrics suck"...) HOWEVER... despite all of this, you're still left with an amazingly infectious power pop rock album that I don't think should disappoint many people. It's not groundbreaking, but it's just good rockin music that few bands create like this.

It took a while, but I finally understand what Weezer was getting at with the Green Album.

Its a total parody of the Blue Album.

Yes, I said a parody.

Think about it, virtually identical cover, same title, same production, same amount of songs... What really tipped me off, though, was that every single song has a solo, and every single solo is a note for note shadow of the vocal melody. Sometimes to the point of only being two or three notes.

I can't think of any other explanation. It sounds like an entire album doing a mock imitation of Weezer's Blue album. Its Weezer making fun of how generic their own music was on the Blue album.

Which is hilarious, honestly. I mean, if any other band put out the Green album, they'd be hailed as genius satirists. Weezer actually does it, and NO ONE gets it. They completely miss the straight faced sarcasm, and for some reason undyingly praise what sounds like 10 songs that were written and arranged in 10 minutes.

Just so funny...

The actual album is okay, but as I said before its super generic. The lyics, the chord changes, the melodies. Its all pleasant enough ("Island in the Sun" in particular is quite enjoyable), but it lacks any and all ambition or creative thought.

And thats EXACTLY the point. Too bad virtually everyone missed the joke.

Six years. Ten songs. An album whose entire length is 28:29? Say it ain't so, Weezer?
Truthfully, these tunes are excellent. In terms of pretty, catchy, guitar-griven pop songs, few have crafted better tunes than the boys from Weezer do here. At ten songs and 28 minutes, the album is quite short, but packs more hooks than some albums twice its length.
Pick a track, listen well, and enjoy. Tunes like "Don't Let Go", "Hash Pipe", and "Knock-down Drag-out" start out rocking and don't let up, and tracks which start more subdued like "Simple Pages", "Glorious Days", "Island in the Sun" and "O Girlfriend" eventually arrive there too with soaring, simple but memorable guitar solos and impeccable hooks. It's not rocket science, it's rock and roll, and Weezer has mastered the craft of catchy song-writing on this record as well as anyone.
This record seems out of place in the age of boy bands, self-involved rap rock, and standard corporate rock. It feels more of a throwback than anything with melodies that recall the Beatles or Buddy Holly (if they drenched their songs in distortion and feedback).
Definitely a stellar recording in a summer that has brought forth outstanding efforts from Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, and others, Weezer's latest demands to be heard. Easily among the best albums of the year.
