Review of "Weezer (Green Album) - Weezer"
Here to get things off my chest! (Not my nipples.)
Mike Welsh's only Weezer album - Matt Sharp had departed; opener 'Don't Let Go' is "woo-woah-ooh-woah" not pushing limits - a band finding its feet after a 5 year hiatus? The tone is set for most of the album, and I would listen for the drums breaking away at the song's closure. The green one is formulaic and highly polished - vocal melodies repeated in guitar solos, and harmonised to the state of being saccharine. But by far the best songs are 'Hash Pipe' and 'Island In The Sun'. The former a guitar riff that is dread freed to rock as Cuomo's falsetto tips, and it is energy (and also a sumo wrestler music video to boot), the latter chilled-out guitars and laidback vocals ("hip-hip"). I'd hear them live.
