Comments

Kevin Hayward says:

How did this get a 6 out of 10? These covers are completely uninspired. It’s literally just Weezer trying their best to cover popular songs. Doesn’t even deserve a 5.

orphiccoma says:

more like geezer

Juan Velez says:

Can you review the newest cage the elephant track “ready to let go”

Dennis Plesa says:

“Ease the listener in with the realization its a cover song by introducing rivers voice” … BAHHAHAHAHAAH!! What ?!?! How in the hell is that easing them in to the realization that its a cover ? LOL! Im honestly dying lolol

Rogue Matter says:

Ninja Sex Party did it better

offbeat kiki says:

Wow, I was expecting you to give this a ‘Not Good.’

TyphoidBryan says:

Yep, an established band gets praise for being the ‘fun guy’ on karaoke night. Weezer stinks something awful.

Jeff Apellido says:

I find it hilarious that the second you mentioned “It’s definitely not as bad as cover albums can get”, I immediately thought “Yeah, like those Six Feet Under Albums”. I see we think alike.

Kirk Shelton says:

I had about the same reaction. A friend had it on the background and I stopped to ask “is this Weezer?” I really noticed how too spot on it was when I heard the Eurythmics song. Scrubs was a delight but overall I really don’t like the polished sound of Weezer as of late. They need to back off on the production and get back to basics. I want to hear a gritty rock record from them. I have zero faith that the Black album will be anything like that. Drums so sampled and perfected that they sound like a drum machine. So many layers of keyboards and vocals making the guitars sound like they’re dripping with glitter dust. I want dirty natural reverb and drums that are a little bit out of tune. Rock me Weezer.

Carlos Sierra says:

Take on Me is the best cover in the cover album. Prove me wrong.

Aidan Kiely says:

Reliant K did it better IMO

Riley Martin says:

They don’t even play the intro to Paranoid correctly.

Joseph Tafur says:

Cher Dancing Queen > Weezer Teal Album

Real RETALS says:

Review new bladee

cmz8706 says:

if it ain’t BURZUM it’s BULLPUCKY!
this album is pretty boring and forgettable because the covers are just way too strict… they didn’t do WEEZER covers… they did what every local-bar-band does on Friday nights, playing for free beer and tips…

Rob B says:

This is a NOT GOOD.

MotionDad says:

This album sounds like those re-recorded versions of popular songs floating around spotify

XTRMELY XTREME says:

Iron your shirt melon

Yaakov Bockian says:

they should’ve covered playboi carti considering he actually created weezer

mrbrockpeters says:

This whole fucking album is like a car wash / karaoke version of popular songs.

Very vanilla and milquetoast. Utterly boring.

Technically speaking all the songs are well performed. But artistically speaking, it doesn’t move the needle. They don’t bring anything new or exciting to any cover.

All they do is make you pine for the originals.

This album is what you use when you try to get the rights to a song for your movie or TV show but you can’t afford to pay the licensing rights so you need to purchase the poor man’s version of that song instead.

Skylar Kleinman says:

I disagree with you calling Weezer’s cover of Paranoid “bad Ozzy vocal cosplay”. Check out the video of Brian singing You Gave Your Love To Me Softly or the live performance of Yellow Camaro (with his band Space Twins). That’s just how his voice sounds naturally.

Matthew Fuller says:

Dad Rock music is destroying this once great nation.

Julio Agosto says:

So glad to see Meme Review is back! 10/10 Melons.

EndranceZ1 says:

bro GTFO!! Alien Ant Farm’s cover of Smooth Criminal is one of the greatest covers ever lol

Cameron Moss says:

very nice tropical vibe I’m getting with the teal album and the pink shirt
