Weezer: Hurley.

Weezer: Hurley.

About 5 years ago we decided to get rid of our Cd's, they take up so much space. With MP3s what's the point. We ripped them onto the computer and sold the majority. The only ones I kept were three from Sublime and all the previous Weezer Cd's.
They consistently are good, they are the only band from the 90's that are legitimately competing with modern bands and still making hits. Their sound has evolved but has remained true to it's original feel.
Before listening to Hurley I read the info page of the booklet. Several warning signs appeared. One, the chorus for the first track was sung by the guys from Jackass, while the guitar was by Chris Pontius aka party boy.
Two, Michael Cera sings and plays the flute on another track. Hearing him sing at the end of Juno made me afraid.
But after listening to the album the songs became catchy and you really didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.
This is a really good album. Not the best but solid with at least three memorable songs. Unfairly, if you download it from itunes it comes with three new songs and a cover of a Coldplay song.

Definetly worth listening to.

4 out of 5.



  1. What about it makes you say that it is really good?

  2. When you buy albums, most of the time, maybe two songs are good. So it is a waste in my opinion. What makes this good is that at least half of the songs are good, while the other half is ok but nothing is catchy about them.
