Weezer – Everything Will Be Alright In The End // Album Review

weezerIsland – October 6th

Back with their ninth studio LP Everything Will Be Alright In The End, and first collection of new material in four years, Weezer will be expecting you to rock out to tongue-in-cheek reject music once more. Roping in producer Ric Ocasek, who worked on the band’s Blue and Green albums, was certainly a smart move. Jaunty chorus lines and distorted audio during ‘Back To The Shack’ is a formulaic spurt for the mainstream. But heavy hitting two-minute guitar surges during ‘Eulogy For A Rock Band’ and ‘I’ve Had It Up To Here’ refine back down to inventive Weezer territory. And let’s face it; nothing can get worse than album Hurley, which reached No 49 and prompted fans to bribe the band to split up (ouch). So things can only really go up from here.
