Hurley: 0
Raditude: 1

Case closed.

"Buddy Holly", "In the Garage", and "No One Else" are the 3 best Weezer songs not named "Africa".

This album is quite perfect with it's raw sound and perfect songs including my favorites "Say it Ain't So", "Buddy Holly", "Undone" and "Holiday". It definitely deserves number one and "Rolling Stone Magazine" agrees as this album made the top 500 albums of all time list.

2 Pinkerton

The best weezer album by far

Blue Album is awesome, but Pinkerton is a masterpiece that's better in every way possible.

This is not only unquestionably the best Weezer album but also the greatest album of all time, at least in my opinion. No other album I've ever listened to was written with such raw passion and emotion. It is an absolute masterpiece. As a long time Weezer fan I feel every album has its merits, and they're all a fun listen, and no album has not and will not ever match this in terms of melody, song-writing, lyrics, etc. and it is unfair to compare the other Weezer albums to Pinkerton just because nothing will ever come close to it. If you could write perfection in the form of music, this is what it would sound like. - evoxpisces

You should all know there is a split between people who like all of Weezer, and people who love the Blue Album and Pinkerton but can't stand the rest. The people who cut it off at Pinkerton do it because it is a masterpiece that will never be duplicated and it drained all the emotion from Rivers so that he stopped writing true meaningful music. Every song of of Pinkerton could be a hit today. - mikeford

3 Maladroit

This album is sick! Heavy riffs and guitars in the beginning and mellows out in the end with a final finish with Love Explosion and December. A very underrated album. - cjWriter1997

Weezer rocks on this album. I didn't really get in to it when I first heard it, but I decided to listen again a few years later. Now I really think it should be in the top 5.

Maladroit... I know a couple of songs on this album like, Dope Nose, and I've been wanting this album but I just can't seem to find it anywhere... I live in the Pittsburgh Area of PA, if you know where I could find it please tell me

Riffage. To me it is their best album

4 Weezer (Green Album)

Blue, Pinkerton, Green, Maladroit, Hurley, Blackhole, Red, Death To False Metal, Make Believe, Raditude. That is my opinion

Not only is this better quality than Pinkerton but also has heavier songs and non-radio friendly songs like Hash Pipe. Pinkerton is the most overrated Weezer album here, has like 2-3 good songs.

5 Everything Will Be Alright In the End Everything Will Be Alright In the End

Toss up between this and Pinkerton. It's to close for me to decide a definitive favorite but these are must listens.

I actually like this album better than Blue.

Don't hate me. Let me explain.

Blue has two standout hits: Say it ain't So, and Buddy Holly. Then it has 8 other tracks, that are, while not always memorable, those tunes that are gonna get stuck in your head.

On Everything will be alright in the end, EVERY SINGLE TRACK has gotten stuck in my head. It has Back to the Shack, Ain't Got Nobody, the Vinci, Cleopatra, and The British are Coming, (as well as the fantastic ending to the Futurescope trilogy) and the rest are all those memorable tunes.

This album should be on top, followed by Blue and Green - Drum_Solo

Rivers put a lot of effort into this in my opinion, and it paid off.

Basically Hurley 2. That said, it's way better overall and deserves to be in the top 5. Ain't Got Nobody is incredible.

6 Weezer (White Album)

Well, in all honesty, this album had me in tears. Not emotionally, but just how much Weezer has returned in this album. EWBAITE was the resurrection to say, but this album is a true return. It was fantastic. Should definitely be in the top 5.

Just started back listening to weezer and its because of this album. I feel like I'm going though the same thing I did when I discovered blue when I was fourteen. Great stuff.

While this is not the best, it is definitely in the top 5. They really put a lot of effort into it and it sounds perfect. Every song is really good

The singles from this album are some of the best songs so far this year. - Cyrobian

7 Weezer (Red Album)

This is an amazing album. In terms of the range of styles that this album showcases, I consider it to be their "Revolver" album. Conceptually this shows Weezer having the most fun that they have ever had in the studio through their use of changing instrumental and song writing roles. But, at no point does it not sound like Weezer. Rather, it's Weezer trying new things, which is the sign of a band aging gracefully.

Honestly, the album grabs my attention with Troublemaker and Pork And Beans but then loses me on tracks like Everybody Get Dangerous. Don't get me started on The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, I get what they were trying to do, but what they came out with was nothing amazing. However, this album is definitely worth buying with tracks like Cold Dark World, Thought I Knew and (by far the best Weezer slow song) The Angel And The One. The band explores territory unmatched by any previous and future albums as Bell, Shriner, and Wilson all take their turns in (fantastic) compositions as lead singer. Sorry, Weezer (Blue Album) is by far the best songwise, but Weezer (Red Album) is the best display of Weezer's talent and creativity as artists.

I feel the same way man. I always love Pork and Bean and there was only one or two songs that I didn't fall for. Cold Dark World is amazing and personally I really like Everybody Get Dangerous. - cjWriter1997

This is much better than maladroit

I love this album. Pork and beans baby!

8 Hurley

Oh come on hurley is not THAT bad

Good album, but... That cover.. *shudder* - SammySpore

Why on number four? It's the best album ever! Please listen to the song 'Ruling Me' than you know why it's the best album.

That album cover is the laziest thing I’ve ever seen.

9 Make Believe

Every song is epic. Beautifully played guitars and delicate harmonies: a pleasure for your ears.

This is probably my least favourite weezer album

Perfect situation and Beverly Hills are as good as ALL WEEZER SONGS COMBINED!

The most underrated =W= album by far. Pinkerton is my actual #1 but this is close behind in #2. The music, the lyrics, everything is perfect in this album. I really don't get why this album is disliked so much. "Damage in Your Heart" is easily just as powerful as any other =W= song out there. Seriously, aside from Beverly Hills this album is a masterpeice. - evoxpisces

10 Songs From the Black Hole Songs From the Black Hole

My favorite album. In my opinion better than Pinkerton.

It's such a great story, and such a deserving album that never was

It's like another Pinkerton! Great tunes, Blast Off and Longtime Sunshine are some of Weezer's best. Space rock opera is a great concept and this album is better than everything they've put out since Pinkerton combined! They should release it... It should be 3rd.

The Contenders

11 Death to False Metal

I wasn't a fan of this album... but at least it's better than Raditude...

This is not so much a studio album as it is a collection of unreleased material, but it's pretty good stuff and way better than anything Weezer put out post-Make Believe. - evoxpisces

This album has some great songs. Iy deserves to be higher.

12 Raditude

This DESERVES to be lower, it's a awful album to sit through... and in general it's like Rivers was drunk off his ass when he made this atrocity.

This is a disgrace to Music, and Weezer in general, absolutely their worst albums, and one of the worst albums of all time.

Good Riddance.

I like nearly every song in this album. I always listen to this album all the way through (I deleted like 1 song though). (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To is my favorite song! - Jammer196

This is a very good album and contains two brilliant songs in I'm Your Daddy and (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.

13 Pacific Daydream

A more modern pop sound which pisses of old people but their new fans will enjoy.

Their 2nd worst album behind Raditude in my opinion.

Horrid. - theyenmaster400

It was only released a couple days ago and it definitely deserves to be higher than Make Believe
