I am not sure what the craze is about this new Weezer album Hurley.  It's a solid album, but it;s certainly not the best post-Pinkerton Weezer moment.  In fact, stylistically, it's basically a Raditude Part II, except that the production is much rougher and the songs rock a little harder.  But as Raditude was the tighter album, why is it being knocked?  Can someone explain this to me?

Anyone who doesn't see the expert craftsmanship behind raditude ought to be dismissed as a conservative. This is a stronger album than Hurley, with very high, creative moments on almost every level (stylistically more diverse than hurley with more of a flow). It is a sweet consistent album. Hurley is a good album, but not an excellent album like Raditude.

because raditude had about 3 original, good, creative songs. Hurley has....6, maybe 7.

in case your wondering,
trippin down the freeway
let it all hang out
I dont want to let you go

and IYWIIWYT is alright.

on hurley, basically every song except wheres my sex is very good, although even that song is better than half of raditude
lyrically speaking, raditude sucks and hurley is awesome. hurley compared to blue or pinkerton would've been a better post. musically, raditude had maybe 3 or 4 songs that i thoroughly enjoy.. IFWIIWYT, trippin' down the freeway, let it all hang out and IDWTLYG. and get me some is a cool tune. but i love every song on hurley. i guess it's nostalgia because some of the compositions remind me of blue or pink.. that classic weezer sound appears in ruling me and unspoken and memories (the chorus sounds like something out of a SFTBH demo, at least to me). overall, raditude had potential but i think can't stop partying ruined everything and the lyrics were horrid. rivers was 40 when that was released and... he's writing songs that 13 year olds can relate to...
Interesting...but i got a different feel from hurley - the feel i got was this new weezer dressed in a heavier disguise - there was nothing about it to me that felt classic - and i LOVE can't stop partying. i think it's terifically done.
how long have you been a weezer fan for? no lying.

since the green album came out. but my first weezer albums i bought were blue and pink, i decided not to buy hurley, maladroit, or make believe, but they're alright.

are you suggesting that raditude is only an album to be liked by weezer newcomers? Are you trying to say that the length of a time one has spent with a band has to do with the quality of an album? or are you simply trying to suggest your opinions are superior?

no, i'm saying anyone who had owned blue or pink first understand that raditude is a complete fail by weezer standards and most "new fans" only know of them because of beverly hills. i was classifying you as a "new fan" but apparently you're not. it's surprising that an older fan like yourself loves something as disgusting as can't stop partying. but to each his own

So your argument is that the quality of a Weezer album is based on the order you bought the albums.

Hurley, and it's not even close.
um no. i say i'm an older fan and i practically grew up with blue and pinkerton, even though hash pipe was my first weezer song. i'm like you i guess in terms of when i got into them, but i never bought the green album until a few years ago. i'm saying that once you switch from the stuff you know and love to something like green, or in this case, raditude, you wind up disappointed. apparently you dont, but i did.

I started listening to weezer last october. I knew the popular singles such as sais, undone, island in the sun and beverly hills. Why bother was on guitar hero, so I decided to look them up. Eventually I found el scorcho. I was instantly hooked, so I started listening to their albums. First I got blue and Pinkerton then green then maladroit the raditude the make believe and red and then finally, Hurley! Only a couple more days till dtfm! I am not a longtime fan, but I like Pinkerton the most. Raditude the least.

pinkerton junkie is right in this case. its not even a matter of which you like more, its just than hurley is musically superior.

i am extemely new weezer fan, im 15. i got into them from red. and i think the older albums are far superior, although none of their albums are bad. lyrically, raditude was weak.
