A quick background: I'm an old time fan (since I first heard Undone on the radio when I was 11 or 12) through now. On another band's forum, I started doing track by track reviews of albums (Velvet Underground for example) with the intention of doing the entire discography. Ratings go from 1-10, with 1 being the theoretical worst song possible and 10 being the theoretical best song possible. Please note that I have only given a handful of tracks a 10 rating in my life and there will eventually be a Weezer song that earns a 1 rating.

I'm all the way through Raditude so I figured I'd start posting them here to get a bit more harsh criticisms from more serious fans of the band. My goal was to assess each song on its merits, minimizing the amount of nostalgia that could bump up a rating.

Here's Blue:


Image
1. My Name Is Jonas – 8. My name is Wepeel, got a box full of your toys. Fresh out of batteries, but they’re still making noise.
2. No One Else – 5. One of the weaker songs on the album. The chorus isn’t particularly special and the double track vocals definitely are deleterious. Still,
it has its charms such as the clever vocals on the second verse and
general exuberance. This one smoked live back in 95/96, but on record it leaves a bit
to be desired.
3. The World Has Turned and Left Me Here – 5. Another one that never did a lot for me. The lyrics are typical of the
more serious moments of the album which are simplistic yet heartfelt
which really sells it. Unfortunately, the melody isn’t all that strong
and there isn’t much of a shift in dynamics throughout the four
minutes. Not a bad song by any means.
4. Buddy Holly – 8. Buoyant pop rock synthesizers, falsetto vocals, pseudo-rap phrasing, clever lyrics, and hooks galore.
5. Undone – 8. Another generational classic. Key change guitar solo, falsetto 1-8 harmony, off kilter vocals. Unique yet oddly familiar.
6. Surf Wax America – 8. The band liked closing with this one because it's fast and everyone goes crazy. The break
down in the middle makes classic Weezer classic Weezer. Fun as hell.
7. Say It Ain’t So – 9. Everyone between the ages of 16 and 30 (if not a greater span) knows
this song. Angsty, depressing, and great. The vocal arrangement may be
less interesting than some of the other songs but I’ll be damned if the
1-8 falsetto harmony doesn’t make the first verse.
8. In the Garage –6. This is also one of the less memorable songs on its own but it is absolutely essential to the album. Written following the confidence boost Rivers got following landing the record deal. I like how the last chorus adds Brian's vocal and continues longer than the earlier choruses.
9. Holiday – 7. Another gem. The first half of the song is really just a set up for the
awesomeness and joy of the second half that follows another great
breakdown (hence it not being a solid 8). Excellent vocal arrangement
again.
10. Only In Dreams – 8. Eight minute epic closer. The chorus melody is nothing special, but
everything else is. This is simply about a guy that has a crush on a
girl and asks her to dance with him and she accepts. As cheesy as it
sounds, Rivers and co. completely sell it. “You say ‘It’s a good thing
that you float in the air (in the air). That way there’s no way I (I)
will (will) crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces.’” When
people say they miss Rivers writing good lyrics, they aren’t talking
about some kind of great poetry but simple lines like those that are
unobvious but completely evocative (and those awkward backing vocals
seal the deal). Of course I haven’t even mentioned the glorious
breakdown and build up and guitar orgy at the end.

B-Sides
Mykel and Carli – 8. Named after the original fan club presidents who died not too long
after this song was written in a car crash. Unfortunately, this makes
the lyrics “I had these two best friends, til the school bus came and
took my friends away” almost prescient. The song would have been a
welcome addition to the Blue Album proper. It tells a fictionalized
tale of Rivers and his friends Mykel and Carli. They gave him a hat and
the teacher took it away. The guitar solo is short but ever so sweet.
Great essential song.
Jamie – 7. There are two b-side versions. The first is an electric version that
was done for a student project before the blue album sessions hence the
sound not being quite as good as the blue album and the second is an
acoustic version. Both versions are equally great. A love song to their
lawyer with some typical off kilter lyrics for the period that the band
completely sells.
My Evaline – 6. Interesting four part harmony vocal exercise that’s less than a minute long.
Susanne – 7. Classic 6/8 Weezer in every sense. Harmonies, solos, metal band references all in a seemingly sincere ode to a lady.

It seems like you put some real thought into this, and it's appreciated. As far as Weezer fans, I'm as big as they come but that doesn't mean I think their music is perfect. It adds intimacy if you feel like you're the only one who likes a band. No One Else is my favorite song and you gave it a FAILING GRADE. But that's okay because it doesn't change how I feel about it.

Post your Pinkerton review.

what? your logic, i dont, understand
Just for the sake of accuracy: the song "Mykel & Carli" was written in 1993, 4 years before the girls' accident.
Pinkerton wasn't appreciated at it's time of release because of this kind of reviews (also counting the ones you did on the other Weezer Albums). Their albums, even Raditude, is 100x times better than all the s*** topping the charts these days (black eyed peas, guetta, gaga, keisha, etc etc) in every aspect.
To clarify the ratings scale I use, 5 is average, not failing. In other words a 5 song has as many good attributes as negatives attributes.

I'm going to skip Pinkerton due to the fact that there are a new batch of songs to review from the sessions and will skip ahead to Green. As I mentioned before, I posted this for a site for non-hardcore Weezer fans, so a lot of the background info is old hat for a lot of y'all I'm sure.

Green Album Background Info:

Following Pinkerton’s commercial and critical failures (listed as one of the worst albums of 96 according to a Rolling Stone reader’s poll), the band fell apart with Rivers' destroyed self esteem. After a few years, the nostalgia juices started flowing in a lot of kids born between 80 and 85 or so and sure enough, the band came back without bass player Matt Sharp (in his place, Mikey Welsh) whose falsetto was so key to the sound of the first two albums and whose interest in moog synthesizers (as found on his Rentals records) helped shape the Pinkerton sessions. These summer 2000 shows were not merely for nostalgia as the band debuted at least a dozen songs. Interestingly, only one of these songs made it onto the Green album and two others onto Maladroit. I won't touch too much on these other tunes as they were never officially released but they provide some insight into the transition to from Pink to Green. Interestingly the songs are slightly more adventurous than the neutered approach Rivers took on his comeback album. There are some time changes (nothing more advanced than straight/cut time switches) and Mikey does his best Matt Sharp impersonation on "O Girl." There are a few minor gems, but for the most part, the songs are unmemorable and indicative of Rivers retreating from his songwriting experimentalism he exercised on his last album. Fast forward a few months, cue the return of Ric Ocasek and...

1. Don’t Let Go – 5. Pleasing enough of a song. The drum intro is a nice little “welcome back” into a nice driving riff n rhythm. The problem comes when Rivers starts singing. Yeah, the Brian Bell harmonies are all in place but man do they sound like they are sleeping here. On the Make Believe tour, they revamped it and Rivers brought up his vocals an octave (or just a drastic key change?) to give the song the more passionate vocal delivery it needs.

2. Photograph - 6. One of the hookier songs on the album. Again this one never elevates above "pretty good" because, like the rest of the album, it doesn't try. At least the melodies and clap track are in place.

3. Hash Pipe – 6.The only Summer 2000 song to make the album. I remember calling my friends up when they announced on the radio they were going to play "the new Weezer single." Unfortunately, my reaction after finally hearing the song was "eh?" Over time though, I have been able to appreciate the song a bit more. It certainly has the most rocking riff on the album and it is also the most quirky. Not great, but better than Green average.

4. Island in the Sun -6. One of their bigger singles and I believe the only one to be included in an Olson Twins movie. This is the one non-straight rocker on the album which gives it an ever so slight change in feel. As with nearly everything on the album, the melody is fine, the vocals are there, the solo plays the vocal line and the song just ends.

5. Crab – 6. I hear it as "crab out the boony taint gonna do no good"? Lyrically this song is frustratingly generic except for adding the word "crab" in random spots. Either that or I am completely missing something. The melody is actually pretty good and Rivers' voice rises a bit to pack some punch on the chorus.

6. Knock Down Drag Out – 6. Lively, alright melody. On the better end of the spectrum if still not particularly worthwhile.

7. Smile – 6.I kinda like this one. It is a half developed song but boasts a good verse AND good chorus melody. The vocal is pretty emotive too.

8. Simple Pages -7.I'm going to go ahead and say this is the most "classic" sounding Weezer song on the album. The song begins "Green" enough with a good melody on the verse and less obvious almost middle eastern sounding intro. The chorus is so so but has a nice resolve. Like every other song on the album, the guitar solo mimics a vocal line. What's special about this song is the final verse which leads to a nice little outro vocal that differs from the rest of the song on top of the already familiar verse vocal. The dual vocal lines is a nicetouch and a minor songwriting curveball on an album that is so structurally bland. Perhaps the album is starting to take a turn for the interesting...

9. Glorious Day -4. Oh wait no, back to the generic, unspectacular, inoffensive tunes.

10. Oh Girlfriend -4. Continuing with the theme of album ending ballads, this one clocks in at an astonishing 3:49 (epic by the album's 28 minute, 10 song standard). Unfortunately, it still follows suit with the rest of the album. Uninteresting, okay melody, nothing special.

11. I Do – 7. A true anomaly from the tracks released from the Green album, I Do may be typically lyrically shallow, however, the instrumentation and arrangement are what set it apart. The song features a clean keyboard/organ with a green standard "vocal-melody on guitar" which doesn't irk me as much given that it is over a different accompaniment. If tacked onto the end like it was for the UK release, it would be a nice, poor man's Butterfly. Much more so than O Girlfriend at last.

12 Oh Lisa - 4. Standard b-side material. This could be swapped in with any of the lesser tracks on Green and it wouldn't change the mediocre thing one bit.

13. Brightening Day - 4. See "O Lisa."

14. Starlight – 4. Nothing offensive about this one. The melody is okay. It’s just so pedestrian. B-side material better suited for a band without so many great b-sides in the past.

15. Always - 6. An acoustic ballad. Like "I Do" this one sounds far different from the others. The overall effect is less strong than "I Do," but would have been a welcome sub for some of the other songs to strengthen up the album through a diversity in sound.

16. Teenage Victory Song -6. Awesome chorus that nearly overcomes the standard Green Album format it adheres to. Definitely one of the better songs from these sessions.

Epilogue -
In spite of how completely and utterly mediocre this album is, I hold it dear to my heart as it came out right around my high school graduation. Especially after the well thought out, challenging pieces from Pinkerton, this one just comes across as timid and safe which is what they needed at the time. In spite of my fond memories of the album and that time, it still disappoints when not analyzed through nostalgic glasses.
Pretty much every song you've rated, I think the exact opposite. For example, you give Buddy Holly an equal score as Only In Dreams, and Glorious Day a 4! No way!

Oh well, that's the joy of being a weezer fan. Say It Ain't So is by FAR my least favorite Blue song, and you gave it a 9. With our differences, we give all =w= songs some love. Keep it up, excited to see your Maladroit review.....so I can see you give Dope Nose a 10 and Possibilities a 1 (I would be the exact opposite, of course).

man you suck at reviewing cds how the f*** can you give no one else a 5 and in the garage a 6 all these songs are 10s just delete your account cause nobody wants to see your shitty reviews
Posted somewhat abridged earlier, here is my take on Maladroit:

Intro -

Following the success of Green, Rivers balls began to fall back down into their normal place. Guitar solos make a welcome return (which was foretold by them creeping back into the live Green album tracks on tour), structures became more inventive, and the band broke from their sacred ten song format. Interestingly, the band posted demos of the tunes as they were working on them on their website to get fan feedback. I don't think I have ever seen a band of such stature do this to this day. For me this was great because I got new tunes on a regular basis. As with the Summer 2000 demos, I am not going to review all the tunes not used on Maladroit but I will say that for the most part, they are uninspired songs and jams without much to differentiate them from each other and for the most part are inferior to what made the album. One of the notable exceptions is "Saturday Night" which reminded me a bit of El Scorcho with its yelping background vocal looseness and catchy as hell 1-4-5 progression. If you are to check it out, go for the DC demo as opposed to the odd demo that appeared during the proper album sessions. The DC demo begins with Brian Bell saying something like "That's the way Let it Be was...." As for the album itself,

1. American Gigolo - 4. Maladroit begins with this lurching riff heavy tune. I still have no idea why the chose to open with this sludgy song beyond the first lyric. I guess it is an appropriate introduction to the world of Maladroit - snazzy drumming, heavy riffs, awful lyrics, occasional melodies, general half baked compositions.
2. Dope Nose - 7. Badass tune and one of the best of the post-Pinkerton era tunes. It is as nonsensical as the rest of the album lyrically without even an attempt at wit. Ignore that and have fun - it's catchy and has tons of "whoa"s. This is where the return of Rivers, Guitar God first and maybe best comes in play on this album. The solo here is ripping and concise, just what it needs to be. Further credit should be given to Pat Wilson's nifty syncopated beat during the riff. The demo version has a much more straight forward beat which is not only less interesting, but less effective. A worthy addition to their catalog.
3. Keep Fishin - 6. This one was the big single from the album. It's biggest merit is its clever structure alternating from a swung 8th note beat verse to a driving straight rock chorus. It even features some classic Weezer off kilter vocals. And the less than coherent lyrics kinda work on this one. With all that it has going for it, I wish I could like it more. The chorus is decent when it needed to be great in order to solidify the tune as a great, clever Weezer song.
4. Take Control - 4. Another sludgy riff rock song. Bits I enjoy (the "won't be coming back..." line), while other stuff I don't (pretty much everything else). The solo is uncharacteristically clunky but beyond that, there is nothing more overtly negative to add.
5. Death and Destruction - 2. This song first appeared on their website in demo form as an instrumental. Musically, it is quite nice and a good change of pace from the up beat rockers that preceded it. The main problem is the vocal that Rivers added. This is probably the worst offender of the "Rivers writing generic lyrics" era. Not only that, but the vocal delivery reinforces his lack of giving a s***. The melody is completely unmemorable throughout which does the rest no favors. I read a review when the album came out that said this song was his most personal since Pinkerton. That reviewer is wrong for so many reasons and it makes me hate the song oh so much more. It's a shame because instrumentally, it is a decent tune (save for the tastefully unsound solo). And god, he spells out "I love you" at the end. Just awful.
Showing some gained wisdom with age, the song returned on the Make Believe tour back in instrumental form.
6. Slob - 6. I was surprised to find this one has held up rather well. This is the second and final of the Summer 2000 tunes to be included on a proper album and hasn't changed much in execution from the demo. The strength of this song lies in a surprisingly inspired vocal from Rivers. Of course the lyrics are stupid (although they do seem to make sense), but the melody and the double time/regular time transitions bolster Rivers' vocal.
7. Burnt Jamb - 5. Nice contrasting mellow jam with hard rock out. The lyrics are an after thought which is further reinforced by the fact that this song first surfaced in demo form as an instrumental. Neither good nor bad, but pretty forgettable.
8. Space Rock - 3. Awkward falsetto lead vocal from Rivers and the lyrics are about...the weezer message board and his difficulty dealing with fans criticisms on the board. Ugh. Nothing much else to bring the song up after that except for a serviceable melody on the chorus and some good drumming from Pat.
9. Slave - 6. Decent little tune. The non sensical lyrics actually work well with the strong melody. It is interesting that bands like The Killers can get away with lyrics that don't really make much sense, yet the phrasing can convey or evoke a certain emotion regardless of the actual meaning of the words as a group. To a lesser extent, this works with this song. Mate factoid: I ripped off one of the fills in this song unknowingly for a demo I did with one of my bands.
10. Fall Together - 4. Maybe the hardest rocking tune on the album, certainly the most metal solo Rivers on the album. Good drumming, so so riff, so so lyrics, vocals, melody, etc. Beyond the solo and the drumming, there is nothing good or bad about this one which ultimately leaves it as substandard but not awful.
11. Possibilities - 5. This one sounds like it starts in the middle of the song with some driving guitars and drums followed by an awkward solo with some awkward backing vocals. Once the verse gets going, things sail by better. This is a pretty spirited performance which overcomes the lack of development of the song itself. Decent.
12. Love Explosion - 6. Very odd rewrite of Locomotion with some above average riffs. Being that it uses the same winning melody as the aforementioned classic, this one is easy pretty damn catchy. Zero points for creativity, plus points for it being a snappy tune.
13. December - 4. Another alright tune with a superior demo version. When it came time to record this for the album, Rivers deemed it necessary to eschew all the subtleties of the demo for a more ham fisted arrangement. Gone are the 1-3-8 harmonies and musical sparseness, and its place are the usual Maladroit...noise. Like the previous albums, this is another ballad closer. Better than O Girlfriend, but not by much.

B Sides - Mercifully, most b-sides were live takes of Green album material
14. Living Without You -4. This appears to be taken from the later demo sessions and is completely untouched. Consequently some pieces are a bit rough (the back up vocals for example). This driving rocker lacks the hooks to make it memorable in anyway.

Conclusion: This was a drastic stylistic departure from the Green album in many ways. Rivers' confidence made the album a bit more fun but clearly the intent here was to jam and knock out an album a year and a tour after a previous album. Of course the biggest victim is the god awful lyrics. But at least on a musical level it is, for better or worse, more interesting than its predecessor if less well thought out.

I disagree on "Living Without You".

Not saying it is the best Weezer song ever. Just saying that I actually think it's a pretty damn good song. Much preferred to most of the Maladroit tracklisting.
wow. you give 2 of the best songs the album 5s.
