Best Weezer AlbumsWhich is the best album by the alternative rock band Weezer?
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.
Hated the debut album with its buzzing low-fi guitars and alternative aesthetics. For my money, without Pinkerton Weezer would have ended up something like The Breeders, a sort of gimmick-y one hit wonders from the 90s, a mere footnote and anybody who had bought the blue album would be embarrassed now to admit that they did.
Pinkerton showed a new found sense of dynamics and a great leap in songwriting. Really it turned Weezer into a real rock band. By far the greatest album of the nineties, a truly landmark record.
The most abrasive album by Weezer, and lyrics by Mr. Cuomo himself during his time in Harvard, this album I would call a masterpiece. I mean really, even the first track (Tired of Sex) got me on edge to jump and headbang all around. Anyway, this album really captures the emotion felt by Cuomo which is love and pain and it will even make anti-Weezer fans surprised for it's raw production and abrasive sound. I recommend to just about anyone buy the whole album to listen this masterpiece
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.
This album is perfect I have not listened to every weezer album but I got in to them in 06 and this album is perfection and say it ant so and buddy holly are two of the best songs of all time and two of the best songs of the 90s and 2 of the best songs of 1994 this album is one of my all time favorite albums this is the 2nd best album of 1994 right behind dookie by Green Day every song on the blue album is a 5/5 for me
Fave weezer albums in order
1. blue album
3. green album
I love Pinkerton, but the thing for me to really enjoy it is when I'm in a melancholy mood. Blue Album is the kind of album you can listen to whenever and you'll catch yourself singing along while chilling on the couch on a Sunday morning. My Name is Jonas, Undone, and Say it Ain't so are probably my favorite songs on this album. For anyone who wants to get into Weezer, listen to Blue first!
Really close between this one and Pinkerton. But I feel while Pinkerton is a great great album, but I feel like I relate to the lyrics on Blue a lot more.
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.
After the over simplicity of the green album, Weezer's creativity was questioned. To me personally when I hear songs like dope nose, keep fishing, blended with songs like death & destruction as well as burndt jambd (Sorry if I misspelled it) I truly believe that Weezer aren't just a rock band playing pop chords, but that they are artists
This album is, alongside Pinkerton, Weezer's heaviest album (and it very well may beat Pinkerton, in my opinion). Basically, this album is an alternative metal pop-influenced riff fest. With songs like 'Keep Fishin", what is there not to love about Maladroit?
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
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.
Really good album. Only reason why it isn't my favorite is probably because it is way too short! Still great. My favorites are Hash Pipe, and Knock Down Drag Out.
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.
People like to pretend they don't like this album. but they do. it is amazing with a couple of exceptions
Blue, Pinkerton, Green, Maladroit, Hurley, Blackhole, Red, Death To False Metal, Make Believe, Raditude. That is my opinion
Why is the Green Album higher than this? It was so boring and all of the songs sounded the same. This albums was Weezers return to form, with songs such as I’ve Had It Up to Here and Foolish Father.
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
So here is how I got in to Weezer
in 2005 I heard the song Beverly hills and I hated it but then like 3 minutes later I heard perfect situation and loved it so I listen to make believe and hated it and then forgot about Weezer
then in 2007 I played my name is jonas on guitar hero and loved it then I listen to the blue album and fell in love then listen to pinkerton and fell in love then listen to green album and fell in love then listened to maladroit and fell in love
then in 2008 I listened to red album and thought it was mess then in 2009 I heard Raditude and hated every second of it then I listened to hurly in 2010 and the album is actually ok
then in 2014 I heard EWBAITE and I fell in love it immediately became my favorite Weezer album. I love the album to death and since it came out I listen to it min 5 times a month
Weezer is my 21st favorite band of all time
favorite Weezer albums in order
1. EWBAITE 1000/10
2. blue album ...more
It's not even out yet and already surpasses half the list. The previews of songs they've been releasing have a more solid beat and lyrical content then Make Believe, The Red Album, Hurley, and especially the God forsaken Raditude.
Well, I for one think this record absolutely sucks. Even with repeated listens I haven't been able to find anything even remotely interesting. A completely pointless release. People can bag on Ratitude as much as they like, but Let it All Hang Out alone blows everything this turd offers out of the water.
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 as, if not better than 2014's Everything Will Be Alright In The End. It truly showcases Weezer's post-Pinkerton talent: writing catchy, pop-rock songs that go well on most ocassions. Tack on Island In The Sun somewhere and you have the best beach goers album so far.
Where EWBAITE fails in its lack of continuity or structure, this album makes up for! Best Weezer album since Pinkerton, with a few songs good enough to be on Pinkerton! Seriously, check out Do You Wanna Get High and the bonus track Prom Night, two of my favorite Weezer songs of all time
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.
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.
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.
I think this is weezer's most underrated album. Troublemaker is silly yet still fun, and I always find myself sing along to "how's this for arts and crafts." The greatest man that ever lived is probably my favorite song off the album, it's like a compilation of catchy weezer chorus's that they decided to make into a full length song. I've heard pork and beans too many times to enjoy. Heart songs isn't bad, but it's forgettable. It's slow, but almost to the point of being sleepy. Everybody get dangerous is kinda like troublemaker in the sense that you aren't really supposed to take it too seriously. It just makes me giggle every time cuomo says that he doesn't want to tip cows so he doesn't make the cows sad. Dreamin' is a pretty fun track to listen to, I love the intro. I don't have an issue with brian bell taking lead vocals, but thought I knew just doesn't sound like a weezer song. I can't pin-point what it is but it just doesn't. Cold dark world is actually a pretty good song, ...more
I love this album. Pork and beans baby!
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.
Memories, ruling me, hang on, run away, represent, trainwrecks. Listen to them
Good album, but... That cover.. *shudder*
Oh come on hurley is not THAT bad
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.
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!
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.
It's such a great story, and such a deserving album that never was
My favorite album. In my opinion better than Pinkerton.
Was it actually released?
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.
I wasn't a fan of this album... but at least it's better than Raditude...
This album has some great songs. Iy deserves to be higher.
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!
This is a disgrace to Music, and Weezer in general, absolutely their worst albums, and one of the worst albums of all time.
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.
Almost every song in this album is amazing, especially (If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To and Trippin' Down The Freeway.
Come on guys! It isn't that bad. Look, if Weezer was to keep doing their 90s power pop/emo thing, we would all get tired of it. And Weezer was well aware of that, so they modernized their sound. This makes them more accessible to the new generation. But I wish people would stop complaining about how new Weezer isn't very good! Different doesn't mean bad!
It was only released a couple days ago and it definitely deserves to be higher than Make Believe
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.
Definitely not their best but still pretty good,
Pop-Punk Weezer! Guaranteed to explode out of your speakers. Rocks more than any other PP album
Has 6 of their best songs. That's it. Pretty cool
