"Make Believe" is definitely a new sound for weezer. The inclusion of keyboards/piano on most of the tracks is an obvious change in the make-up and sound of the band. But not only that, this album has a different attitude from previous ones. Would you ever expect Rivers Cuomo to say, "Everyone's my friend"??? Hasn't he always been our emotionally unstable, withdrawn, troubled, forlorn, unlucky-in-love hero? Yes, he has, but it seems he is in a better place now, and it comes through in the music. "Make Believe" is a happy album. The subject matter is not always necessarily happy, but the tone is. Rivers even seems to be singing more clearly and loudly, as if he is confident and wants to project his art over the radiowaves (or satellite waves, TV waves, whatever) and is done with shyness. Be sure to do a silly little dance to the fun and synthy "This is Such a Pity."
