Last weekend I listened to all of the Weezer albums as I was raking the leaves. Maladroit really stood out from all of the post-pinkerton albums. Instrumentally, it's Weezer at their finest and I would argue that the strange, quirky lyrics add an interesting element to the music. Besides, all Weezer albums, in any era, have had strange quirky lyrics.
I agree with you completely, Maladroit is a phenomenal album and is some of the heaviest stuff that weezer has ever put out. It is thier third best album behind the blue album and pinkerton.
that's a lot of leaves.
Great albumb (the b is silent as it is in the phrase "burndt jamb"
