I love Weezer. I have to say that they are my favorite band. This album, however, is a terrible example of what they are capable of. These tracks are overproduced and tend to stumble at times. I agree with Forknose: Pinkerton and the Blue album are way better. If you want to know Weezer, buy those albums. While this album is still passable, it isn't great. Perhaps my standards are too high, but this is not the Weezer that I expected.
