Editorial Reviews

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Weezer: Streamlined and Refocused May 21, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars An overly bashed album; listen to the MUSIC people!!!! February 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars A little Sweet June 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although I like the new Weezer album entitled "weezer", (which is the best name by the way), I must say that it sounds a little sweet for me.....letting Ric Ocasek produce an album can only achieve one goal-it will definately sound "poppy". For any of you who love Guided by Voices-and I am a huge fan, you can relate to what I'm saying via the "Do the Collapse" album that Ocasek produced in 1999. I wish that guy would stay away from every band I listen to. He's a masterful producer, but tends to try to turn all bands into top 40 sound. Anyway, I like the album and am I weezer fan, all fans should and probably do have the album. Don't expect Pinkerton or even the Blue album, but you'll like it.
Am I the only person who thought Pinkerton was the Best Ever?

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like Weezer May 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I finally get it... September 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
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.
