I really like this album. "Where's My Sex?" may have some really cringe worthy lyrics but it makes up for that musically. Also "Brave New World" has really grown on me since i first heard it. The rest is extremely solid.
I've loved every =W=eezer album (Raditude was awesome) except pinkerton (which i think sucks...*waits for angry mob with pitchforks*), and i can say without a doubt this is my new favorite weezer album (old one was green). The lyrics are epic, Musically it jsut has an epic quality to it. It finally has guitar solo's! Rivers even does a few screaming parts which at first i didnt think i would like but now i love! His voice is amazing, the heavy guitar blows my mind and really gets me a rockin!
My Favorite songs are without a doubt trainwrecks and Ruling Me...and of course memories
Memories 10/10-Love the slidding guitar and rivers near screaming vocals! And it has such intense verses only to have a pretty mellow chorus which i think works great! (who ever said this was Andrew W.K. covering the killers should be ashamed! the killers are better )
Ruling Me 10/10- The lyrics are nice and nerdy and the chorus is my favorite of the album. Its just a really epic song the way it is presented
Trainwrecks- 12/10- The moment that guitar came in i knew it would be my favorite weezer song yet. This song just blows my mind and melts its face with Rivers awesome vocals, that beautiful guitar riff, and the lyrics are fun to listen to
Unspoken 8/10- First listen i was all like "wtf?"...then i listended to the lyrics and man is this just a good old teen angst song, full of anger. I really like the song, and it makes me feel like burning down a post office...or some such symbol of the man
Where's my Sex 9/10-LOLZ!!!!!!
Run away 6/10- My least favorite, it just seems to be missing the same raw energy of the rest of the album and kinda ruins the flow i think lol
Hang on 8/10- Musicaly its just a song for me to listen to, simple as that :)
Smart Girls 9/10- What i feel this song lacks lyrics wise (although i think they're very weezerish) the instumental part of this song im in love with :D
Brave New World 7/10-nice song, but i dont think its anything special...all though to me it kinda sounds like it could be a muse song instumentaly (not at all lyric wise)
Time Flies 8/10-A good way to end the album with its slower pace and teh fact that to me this album flies by way to fast :D
