Weezer ~ Make Believe
Taking three-years between albums has made Weezer grow slower and more sober. But on its fifth disc the Los Angeles quartet is no more secure about its place in the world than it was a decade ago in longing tunes like "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here." Singer Rivers Cuomo, still struggling with adolescence at 34, is all apologies. "All I have to do is swing and I'm the hero/ But I'm a zero," he sings on "Perfect Situation," and "I am terrified of all things/ Frightened of the dark," on the lighters-aloft power ballad "Hold Me." The band, meanwhile, keeps things from getting too heavy by punctuating the songs with a familiar rush of bouncy new-wave melodies and fizzing power-pop riffs resulting in the hair-flinging metal of the future D.A.R.E. theme song and album high-point, "We Are All On Drugs." --Aidin Vaziri

Blue& Pinkerton were created when Rivers(fresh out of smalltown USA with dreams of starting a band) wrote these albums through a skeptical view on human nature and a disenchantment of women.
"Make believe" instead blends haunting lyrics and quirky beats that resemble the Dandy Warhols and Depeche Mode. After listening to the entire album there remain some hints of Pinkerton, a good example is in "A perfect situation" and "Haunt you everyday". I'm not sure if these were out of a sense of nostalgia, but what I am sure is that most hardcore Weezer fans will respect Rivers' growth. For those of you who are looking for another Pinkerton, you are looking in the wrong place.
Ever since the Blue album, I've been looking for a consistently good Weezer album. With all the albums in between I've found it very hard to keep listening, but with this one, it's very hard to not stop.
Singles already include "Beverly Hills" and "We Are All on Drugs", which are pretty good songs. If they go for a third single, which they should, I'd recommend either "This Is Such A Pity", "The Perfect Situation", or the power ballad "My Best Friend."
But hey, this is a Weezer album, not Weezer songs surrounded by a couple of singles like the albums between Blue and this one. GO GET IT!
ca sonne un peu comme du vieux Cars.
sur la chanson Beverly Hills la musique resemble un peu
a I love rock'n'roll (Joan Jett).
pour moi un des meilleurs albums de l'été.

I had purchased the "red" album only to be disappointed. This album is way better! The songs in this (black) album are the "jam to" type.Published on Aug. 11 2012 by Bruiser
