Weezer is an amazing colaberation of the good stuff; good riffs, mild distortion and mildly adolesent lyrics. This album actually exceeds better, musicanship wise, then previous albums like “Pinkerton” could ever be, as there is not really any ‘hook’ songs. Instead, each song has it’s own persona, something that’s noticable absent in previous Weezer releases. About the only thing that could be wrong with “Maladroit” is that the boundries are the same; if you didnt like the band before, you won’t like this album. Should they change a good thing just to grab a few more fans? Nah.
