Review of "Weezer (Green Album) - Weezer"
Weezer, where have they been?I remember them from back in the mid-nineties when everyone went mad for "Buddy Holly". And that's probably how, after five years away from the music scene, most people remember Weezer (the Buddy Holly guys).
But now they're back with (almost) the original line up. Rivers Cuomo - the high singing frontman, Patrick Wilson on drums, Brian Bell on guitar and the new guy, Mikey Welsh replacing Matt Sharp on bass.
So how ahs the music changed since the last release five years ago? Well in some respects it hasn't.
Their music is still unmistakably Weezer. Yes you still get the occasional oooeeoow in the chorus (if you take those away it just wouldn't be Weezer would it?). But they have gone so much further since those days. The Green Album shows that they should never have been away for so long and that they are still a great band.
This could be the start of a new era for Weezer. Recovering from such a long absence can be tricky for any band, but if Weezer can continue to produce tracks such as Hash Pipe then they can certainly pull it off.Weezer - The Green Album
