Best Weezer AlbumsWhich is the best album by the alternative rock band Weezer?
The Top Ten
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
Emotion is where this album hits. I feel like Rivers Cuomo really set the stakes when he made this one, but damn it was a VERY GOOD IDEA. Blue is also very very good, but Pinkerton gets the vote because it has the emotional and honest connection. I will never forget this album growing up. - TheClue1107
I have to pick this one. I don't know but I really like the vibes of this album. It's just crazy, dark, moody vibes. Also, there are not bad songs in the whole album. River's vocal is really FIRE though.V 25 Comments
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.
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!
non-radio friendly songs? are you kidding me? The Green Album is when they turned radio-friendly, Pinkerton is the opposite and every song on it is good. But this one, classic masterpiece, there aren't to many albums like this, representing so good ROCK. - mattlol
I'd probably rank them like:
10) Pacific Daydream
9) Make Believe
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.
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
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
11) Raditude  - God awful but I really like a couple songs. - 5/10
10) Pacific Daydream  - So lazy and doesn't feel like Weezer. - 5.5/10
9) Make Believe  Boring, but has some great songs. - 6/10
8) Weezer (The Red Album)  Okay. - 6.5/10
7) Hurley  I like it as much as Red but some songs are really great. - 6.5/10
6) Weezer (The White Album)  Sweet. - 8.5/10
5) Weezer (The Green Album)  Simple, short but sweet. - 9/10
4) EWBAITE  Amazing, Weezers comeback. - 9.5/10
3) Pinkerton  Love it so much, I hate to put it this low. - 10/10
2) Maladroit  So good, almost every song is a masterpiece. - 10/10
1) Weezer (The Blue Album)  Do I have to explain why I love it so much? - 10/10
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.
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
Basically Hurley 2. That said, it's way better overall and deserves to be in the top 5. Ain't Got Nobody is incredible.
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. - tommydeath
Rivers put a lot of effort into this in my opinion, and it paid off.V 13 Comments
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
Best weezer album since pinkertonV 12 Comments
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
I love this album. Pork and beans baby!
This is much better than maladroitV 2 Comments
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.
Memories, ruling me, hang on, run away, represent, trainwrecks. Listen to them
Hurley is a good album. Lots of catchy tunes but Weezer still lacking some of the quality lyrics of Pinkerton and The Blue Album.
Memories, Ruling Me, Trainwrecks
Where's My Sex
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!
Make Believe is an average album with some very average songs. Not bad but not great either.
Beverley Hills, we are all on drugs, perfect situation
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.
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. - evoxpiscesV 1 Comment
This is a disgrace to Music, and Weezer in general, absolutely their worst albums, and one of the worst albums of all time.
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.

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