Bargain bin album, still paid to much

Yikes! This is a terrible album. Been through it half a dozen times and just nothing here. Took a risk with a $6.99 purchase on iTunes and wish I could get my money back.
This is too hard to see

I cannot watch anymore good rock bands sell out, when will these artists understand that it is better to not sell out.

Not my fav but great I love a lot of the songs just the not so good ones are bad
I know your trying just try a little harder
Don’t listen to the haters
The album is great especially the first half, also California snow is one of my favorite songs since before it was put on this album.
Overall bold move for weezer and I love it
Cool. I appreciate the new sound. I do think that there previous albums are better though.
The best bands evolve!
I'm sick of pseudo Weezer fans extolling the virtues of the oldest material while dismissig the newer stuff as Imagine Dragon-like. Stupid. I LOVE that they have stretched out from post-punk garage rock and opened up their toolbox to incorporate a wider range of textures. They've always been able to turn out crunchy hooks and they've certainly found more than a few for this album. Living in LA has a cool retro feel with a distinctly Police-like refrain (find it yourself...you'll hear it if you're familiar with The Police). Zombie's is fun, light-hearted and catchy. Cake is GREAT. Byzantine...super. NONE of these songs resemble HASH PIPE, which is fine...Weezer can continue to evolve beyond being 1-trick ponies. The RED album was great, and the BLACK album reminds me in many ways of my acceptance of that one from first listen. WEEZER is COOL because they can explore different presentations of "their" music. There are a lot more electronic effects incorporated into these songs...yet...they can still comfortably remain a guitar-based rock band. Shoot...they can do Ozzy Osbourne! The Teal album proved that.
It's a catchy album...it deserves a much better rating than the 3-star average weighted down by elitist "old-school Weezer rules" trolls.
In my humble opinion, of course.
So confused with all the bad reviews
By Hell yeah !
I like Weezer, and I especially like their first two albums. Classics. That being said, the last SEVEN albums sounds exactly the same! Basically just watered down versions of the first three albums. Yes, this album is extremely different but what’s so wrong with that? Yes, it has a very poppy tone, however it’s actually pretty catchy stuff. So for Weezer this album is actually much different. Look at it as a Weezer dance album. Don’t worry, they’ll probably be back to their repetitive albums after this.
They should’ve just called it quits after the white album it was great.. it was more of what they started out as. No one wants this pop crap with no guitars or real drums. We want the band doing what they were meant to do and playing their instruments
People aren’t listening.
You are supposed to “leave a 5 star review”
Great sounding album
I don’t love every song on it but do enjoy the overall sound. As a guy whose musical preferences are evolving I actually really enjoy artists whose style has evolved too. I think these guys are in it for the love of the game more than anything else (can’t imagine any of them are hurting for cash at this point) and just opening up the playbook a little more than they would have years ago. It may not sit well with fans now by I’d be willing to bet they’ll warm up to it down the road.
