GNFNR Album of the Week 41: Weezer- Weezer (White Album) 2016

Recommended Posts

Cover_of_Weezer%27s_White_Album%2C2016.j

 

Weezer's tenth album is the band's first release since 2014's excellent Everything Will Be Alright in the End. The latest album features breezy, summery pop music, with influences from their own works Blue Album, Green Album, and even a little Pinkerton. This album is glossy and poppy, with catchy hooks and simple but addicting melodies. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

 

1. "California Kids"                             3:25

2. "Wind in Our Sail"                          2:53

I will have to give this a listen tomorrow.

I love Weezer, I love their 1st album and Pinkerton.

I really love Maladroit, and all the singles I've heard from them over the years since then ("Pork & Beans"), but I don't know this album.

I think spiritually, musically it is similar to the Green Album. Very polished sound. Lyrically definitely a fair amount of Pinkerton.

This is one of my favorite Weezer album. Excellently crafted pop album.

 

California Kids, L.A. Girlz, and King of the World are probably my favorites.

I just got tickets to see them in December. I have seen them twice before and they put on an amazing show. I am so excited.

 

JB, would love to see your rankings!

 

I think Weezer is either very light and poppy, or very dark. This seems to be reflected in their albums.

 

Light:

Blue, Green, Make Believe, Red, Raditude, Hurley, White

 

Dark:

Pinkerton, Maladroit, Everything Will Be Alright
