I hate to say it because I love this band. Now they all seem happy and their music sucks. Didn't the same thing happen to Metallica?

Here is a clip from the George Lopez show

Blue album and Pinkerton = masterpieces or close enough.

Green Album = average

Everything after = 100% garbage.

This should be in the Polls section and the only option to select should be "Yes."

They made two great albums one or two decent ones now they are just doing whatever they want to do and having fun with it. Its hard to hate that.

I agree on a personal level. If they are dudes doing what they want and enjoying it and they'ren't actively hurting anyone (must resist joke) I can't get too upset.

But critically, as a music listener, as someone who used to like this band a lot... it's incredibly easy to hate them. Or, at the very least, their music. And continued existence.

Blue album and Pinkerton are classics.

Everything else blows goats for quarters. They suck live as well.

First two records are classic.

Everything since seems to wish for the world to continue in perpetuity to exist in the 2001 world of American Eagle clothing and American Pie films.

This of course is worse than the Holocaust.

Boring as fuck live too. Because it's very hard to move when you have to strum an open G for four minutes straight.

Did anyone like Maladroit? Or at least some of it?

Oddly I only still really like Pinkerton, and Make Believe is pretty good despite being in the center time line of their shittiness. Blue just kind of annoys me now, save for the Only In Dreams ending.

the Red album had one great song though, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.

Wow, thats the first time I've heard that I can't stop partying song, and it is just flat out annoying. But yes Weezer does suck now. However Pinkerton is a great album.

I really like Maladroit. It was like a collection of demos with the band just trying things out.

One of the reasons I like it is that we've always heard that Rivers is a guitar god, but Weezer's songs never really leant themselves to showing that aspect of him off. And there's a few songs on Maladroit where he just kills the guitar solos.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

Agreed. It almost seemed like another reset for Weezer that could've gone in a really good direction (Burndt Jamb, Space Rock, Possibilities) but unfortunately didn't and turned too mainstream (Dope Nose, Keep Fishin) for it to equal Blue/Pinkerton status.

Slob and Possiblities are great songs. Beyond that, ehh. At best.

Part of the reason I liked Maladroit so much was because of how raw it was after the very very generic and predictable Green Album. I mean, every Green Album song had a solo that was nothing but the same notes as the verses.

Maladroit at least was a good deal less formulaic, and that's what I dug about it.

I don't understand how often Green is lauded while Maladroit is pretty much forgotten. Besides Pinkerton, Maladroit is easily the most "raw" album while Green, for however good it is, is pretty pre-digested.

1000000000000% agreed. Hit the nail right on the head.

I liked the Red album more than Green. Blue is a true classic.
Raditude was horribly dull.

I honeslty think Pinkerton is their best album. Just such an amazing record with "Across the Sea" and "The Good Life" etc. I remeber after that record thinking "Man is Weezer even capable of writing a bad song." Little did I know what the future held.......

I wouldn't buy their records anymore, but my pop leanings make it hard to deny the catchiness of some of the songs from the past 3 records, even if the same records suck overall.

I think the Green Album is a great power-pop record. Doesn't have the emotional weight of the first two, but it at least has more than the past few. Maladroit is enjoyable but so uneven. Make Believe is an abortion. The Red Album cemented that it was the beginning of the newer, lamer Weezer, and the new album with the dumb name I can't remember reinforced that further.

Anyone who wonders what went wrong with Weezer should go to a Rentals show. Matt was the heart of Weezer, but no one could tell until he was gone.

Marc, I knew I liked you for a reason. You are 100% correct.
