ALBUM: Weezer – Pinkerton (Reissue)

Release Date: November 8th, 2010
Label: Commercial Marketing
Website: www.weezer.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/weezer

Rating:

The music scene in 1996, when ‘Pinkerton’ was first released, was dominated by commercially produced pop bands, such as the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. So releasing an album such as ‘Pinkerton’; a gloomy, lo-fi album at best was a risky thing to do, and the risk didn’t pay off. It was an utter and complete failure. Weezer digressed from their normal brand of geek-power-pop that made their ‘Blue Album’ a huge success, but the band can’t be blamed for making a record that felt right for them and they thought worked. Since then though, ‘Pinkerton’ has been collecting better reviews and has become one of the most important releases in Weezer‘s career.

ALBUM: Weezer – Death To False Metal

Release Date: November 2nd, 2010
Label: Geffen
Website: www.weezer.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/weezer

Weezer have released a new album ‘Death To False Metal’, only a few weeks since new full-length ‘Hurley’ hit the shelves. This time is a bit different though, this record instead being a b-side collection, something that will surely ensure all the hardcore fans are happy. Most of the songs stretch back to 1996’s ‘Pinkerton’, and also some from 2005’s ‘Make Believe’ album. As a result, ‘Death To False Metal’ sounds a lot more solid than most rarities collections, but a bit more variety would’ve made for a more interesting album.

ALBUM: Weezer – Hurley

Release Date: September 14th, 2010
Label: Epitaph
Website: www.weezer.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/weezer

When a new Weezer album comes out, their fan base slowly shrinks. This has been happening for the past decade. They’ve released records that have let their fans down and to be honest, they’re not the band they used to be. Every time leading up to the release of an album, fans hope that it will finally be the album that will be great, and will show that Weezer have at last reached their potential. With ‘Hurley’, they haven’t reached their potential, and now they probably never will. But that isn’t to say that ‘Hurley’ is a bad album, it’s actually quite good.
