Van Weezer, the band’s fifteenth studio album, is produced bySuzy Shinn(Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy).The inspiration for this album derives from the deepest roots of Weezer - metal! What has metal got to do with Weezer, you ask? In his earliest years, Rivers was a huge KISS fan; Brian was a big Black Sabbath fan; Pat worshipped at the altar of Van Halen and Rush; Scott loved Slayer and Metallica. The last time this vein of harder rock was mined by Weezer was on their much-loved 2002 albumMaladroit; Van Weezeris primed to take that album's sonics many steps further.

Hero, The Beginning of the End, The End of the Game, and I Need Some of That all preceded the release of Van Weezer and are all instant classics, they are now joined by Blue Dream, 1 More Hit, and Precious Metal Girl. Yet for toting 7 instant classics, Sheila Can Do It sounds like a hard hitting track off Pinkerton, and Weezer just today released All The Good Ones as a 5th single.
Van Weezer hits hard and boasts the classic crunchy guitars everyone has come to know and love. 1 More Hit is probably the closest Weezer has come to a true heavy metal song, emulating the style of none other than Pantera and augmenting it with the much more Weezer sounding vocals and melodies.
Where OK Human was all about introspection and soft beautiful melodies, Van Weezer is the flip side of the same coin, but make no mistake this is still the same coin. This is still iconic Weezer, among their very best work, and endlessly enjoyable. Van Weezer is the yang to OK Human's yin. At once identical in quality and enjoyablity, and polar opposites in sound and pacing.
But then, just when I thought I was almost there, they surprised us with the “OK HUMAN” album.
So this year, I got double Weezer.
Moving on, I really thought all these songs would mean a lack of quality somewhere but holy mother of GOODNESS... I was DEAD.. wrong.
Moving on, I’ve always loved how open they are to being different.
In this album, they’ve really repurposed a lot of past themes, their own, and some new as well.
I am absolutely infatuated after hearing this album.
They’ve really put out a lot of quality work lately with these last two albums.
This one has a lot of songs that get stuck in your head, backing vocals and melody are absolutely stunning.
Weezer did amazing work on this album and I’d really recommend it to anyone that’s willing to give it a listen. You won’t be disappointed 😎👌🔥
"Van Weezer" (10 tracks; 31 min.) opens with "The End Of the Game", and the guitar riffs are heavy and delicious. "Hero" (2nd single) is irresistible with its sing-along chorus "Well, everybody needs a hero, but I'm not everybody else/I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone, oh, yeah!" "I Need Some Of That" (1st single) is actually one of the lighter tunes on here. Side A closes with a super-crunchy "The Beginning Of the End". Side B continues the good vibes of Side A. "Blue Dream" is strangely reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train". The songs on here are short and sweet, just averaging 3 min. per tune, and frankly it serves the album very well, as the songs come and go in no time, and you just find yourself humming along these tunes. Think of this album as a tribute album to Eddie Van Halen but performed by a single artist (Weezer).
I've seen Weezer a number of time over the years, starting in 1997 when they were touring in support of the Pinkerton album at a small club (Bogart's) here in Cincinnati. Weezer is supposed to start a stadium tour in July alongside with Green Day and Fall Out Boy, and what a delightful touring package that should be! Of course this is assuming that the tour will actually kick off as scheduled. The shows that I had tickets for this summer and which already had been rescheduled from Summer 2020, have already been re-rescheduled for Summer, 2022. Absolutely amazing. Let's all get vaccinated so we can enjoy going to shows again! Meanwhile enjoy this newest album from Weezer, as it is one of their better ones actually.

Not a poor track here. Typical Weezer, just good fun. Ordered this in February last year so it has been the longest pre-order ever but can't complain with 2 releases this year.
Looking forward to hearing these tracks live.
