Product Description

Weezer Maladroit US CD album

Amazon.com

After taking five leisurely years to follow up on 1996's Pinkerton, Weezer are apparently on a roll. Arriving just over 12 months after The Green Album, Maladroit finds the Los Angeles power-pop band in the midst of a particularly fertile creative period. "Dope Nose," which is easily stronger than anything on the last album, flexes a sinister shout-along chorus and vintage Van Halen riffs, while the potent garage-punk blast of "Fall Together" wipes out any lingering discomfort over the thoroughly Sugar Ray-sounding "Island in the Sun." In a sense The Green Album was just a taster for this, the blissfully thunderous main dish. Sure, there are some deadpan emo moments ("Death and Destruction") littering the course, but mostly Maladroit is Weezer doing what they do best--inverting and embracing dumb rock stereotypes and somehow making them sound smart. --Aidin Vaziri

A wise friend of mine, after listening to this latest effort by Weezer, noted that Maladroit is to Green as Pinkerton is to Blue - and I think I agree. After all, Green is fairly light and fluffy, while Maladroit is a bit harder-edged. (While Pinkerton isn't *hard*, it's raw and rough, and though Blue is quirky, it has a decidedly cleaner sound.) And of course, both color-themed albums are almost instantly accessible, while Pinkerton and Maladroit take a wee bit more time to grow.
Yet Maladroit is really nothing like the others. Of course, no Weezer album is like another - each has its own distinct sound, and Maladriot's sound is pure and simple guitar rock. (And for once, the guitar solos don't merely mimic the chorus!) My guess is that "Dope Nose" will be the equivalent of "Hash Pipe" or "Buddy Holly" - the radio-friendly hit that is likely to be almost played to death. But there are other great songs to hear as well. "Burndt Jamb" stands out from much of the album - it's pretty damn catchy, too. "Take Control" has an entirely different sound from any other Weezer song I've ever heard . . . but this is no bad thing. Most of the other songs are really good, too - there's nothing that makes me reach for the skip button as yet. So yeah, ok, this is a lot different - but it's a good thing.
But then, that's the best thing about Weezer. Each album so far is unique from the overall work, unlike albums that have a lot of variety on each CD. Weezer's varied, but they're mostly the same ambience (for lack of a better word) from song to song on each album. This makes for nice mood-setting: if you're depressed and/or lonely, listen to Pinkerton; if you're feeling beachy and bubblegum, try Green; for your geeky days, have a bit of Blue; and when you want simple-yet-clever, catchy guitar rock, go for Maladroit.

Forget all the "true fan" and other nonsense talk in other reviews.

The fact is that this is a great album by a great band. If you like light-crunchier power chord-driven emotional rock with great melodies and catchy riffs, then this is for you. If not, go elsewhere.

I don't think one song qualifies as "filler" on this album. Everything from start to finish is good. 'nuff said.

maladroit is definately weezers best CD, the vocals and guitar solos have never been better. This is my personal opinion on each of the songs
1.AMERICAN GIGOLO- when i stuck in the CD my first thought "this is weezer"? but after hearin this song a couple of times you start to appreciate the hooks, great song 9/10
2.DOPE NOSE- Their first single off this album, this song is perfect in every way and reminds me of the older weezer, the guitar solo makes the song. 10/10
3.KEEP FISHIN- Almost "island in the sun" by the beat but, it is still unique in the way it doesn't stay at one tempo throughout the song. 8/10
4.TAKE CONTROL- I didn't like this song at all when i first heard it, but like most songs on this album they improve ALOT if you listen to them again. This song again supplies very good lyrics. 8/10
5.DEATH AND DESTRUCTION- a nice change of pace, with the slow beat..it picks up a notch about half way through the song, Rivers Cuomo's vocals have matured for the better in my opinion. 9/10
6.SLOB- my personal favorite on the CD, weezers never done anything like this..Starts out soft but almost evil sounding, a very nice change of pace. The guitar solo is almost creepy. 11/10
7.BURNDT JAMB- the lyrics on this song make the 10/10 right there, but assisted by a catchy drum beat and back drop singing. definately a 10/10
8.SPACE ROCK- nothing to interesting here, the vocals in my opinion [are bad] in this song and the chorus gets really old..worst of the best right here. 6/10
9.SLAVE- another single thats played on the radio. Very good song that sums it up right there. 9/10
10.

Following up 2001's self-titled "Green Album," Weezer waste no time and produce a better, more complete album less than a year later. Maladroit has it's own distinct sound, as is the case with each individual Weezer album. The Blue Album had it's ultra-nerd appeal, Pinkerton was the moodier, more emotional album and Green Album was feel-good pop-punk in short doses. Maladroit manages to steer itself away from all of the styles on those albums and creates a whole new Weezer style, with a sound more likely influenced by Van Halen than by The Pixies. Hard-rocking anthems like "Dope Nose" and "American Gigolo" are complemented nicely by more melodic tracks, like my personal favorite "Death and Destruction." Once again, Rivers proves himself to be the self-proclaimed song machine he is, effortlessly churning out 13 perfect, hook filled tracks, each of which could be the next hit single. His lyrics on Maladroit resemble the writing style on Pinkerton, which is emotional, but making sure not to take himself too seriously. It's amazing how great this album is, considering it was put together in less than a year. In a music world where some bands wait 5 years to put out an album that's subpar, it's really inspiring to hear a band like Weezer to put out extreme quality in album after album. Other bands could take a lesson from the W.
