Product Description

Product Description

Vinyl European version of 1994 debut. Universal. 2004.


Blending the best aspects of pop, punk and grunge, Weezer's eponymous debut came as a much needed bit of relief to the too-serious American indie scene of 1994. Produced (and strongly influenced) by former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, Weezer blends churning, power-pop guitars with Beach Boys harmonies and the awkward lyrics of singer/songwriter Rivers Cuomo. On standout tracks such as "In The Garage" and "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here", Weezer introduced the wider world to the then-new concept of Geek Rock. However, it was "Buddy Holly"--and its corresponding Spike Jonze-directed video--that propelled this album into the charts. Unfortunately, this song also branded them as nothing more than another novelty act, an unfair fate for an album--and band-- that's since had so much influence. --Robert Burrow --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back in 1994 Nov. 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
When Weezer released the Blue Album back in 1994, Geffen only shipped 13 000 copies, assuming the album would flop since almost no publicity was made for it. Singer Rivers Cuomo and bassist Matt Sharp even wrote a list of people who would surely buy the album, coming up with more or less a hundred names. They sold 90 copies on the first week... But after 'Undone: the Sweater Song' was released as a single, sells hit a peak. Weezer ended up selling 3 million copies of the 'Blue album'. It became an alt-rock classic, thus justifying the release of this so-called "deluxe" edition.

A lot of people are not sure whether they should buy it or not. It's pretty expensive, especially in Canada. Let's go through it. First, the packaging. It's absolutely wonderful. It contains rare and beautiful pictures of the band, which are spread through the packaging itself and inside the 30-pages booklet. The booklet contains pictures of the band, hand-written lyrics to the songs of cd 1 and 2, an essay by Todd Sullivan about how he discovered the band and got them signed and finally detailed notes about all the b-sides featured on the second cd. The only dissapointment is the size of the pictures which are often pretty small.

There is not much to say about the actual Blue album. Everyone knows it's a masterpiece. So let's talk about the second cd. It contains b-sides, live tracks, demos and unreleased songs from the era. Some of these had already been released on compilations, soundtracks or leaked on the internet, but it's nice to have them all on one cd with a slightly improved sound quality. Listening to this cd from beginning to end really gives you a new, insightful look at the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst albums ever recorded July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
In a magical era of music history, when grunge had conquered the universe, WEEZER seemed to fall softly and solidly into place as an undeniable staple of 90's rock. The Blue Album revolutionized the mainstream music industry, swerving the idea of 'coolness' from sadly suicidal to humorously honest, somehow making the genre 'fun' again. And from the almost boyish vocals of Rivers Cuomo to the playful basslines and venomously addictive guitar hooks filling the album, it's safe to say that WEEZER has also managed to create one of the most enjoyable albums ever recorded.
The playful tone of the album is swiftly set with that AWESOME opening song, "My Name Is Jonas", which arrests a brilliant guitar melody with those trademark madly-catchy vocals from Rivers. It's a great song that nearly everyone on the planet has heard, I'm sure. Other songs that have infested the radio over the years include my favorite track "Undone-the Sweater Song", which contains one of the GREATEST choruses ever, as well as that pumping king-of-all-geek-anthems, "Buddy Holly". "Say It Ain't So" also adds a great vocal point on the album, which could also be said for "Holiday", a song that sounds like a remnant of the 50's musical era.
Other standout tracks include possible the stupidly greatest love song ever written, "Only In Dreams". With lines like "She's in the air, in between molecules of oxygen and carbon dioxide . . .", who could even dream of disputing it!?! THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT!!!! "Surf Wax America" and "In the Garage" are also among my favorites, with slow, thoughtful, churning idiocy that make my ears bleed with joy every time I give'em a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best You'll Hear July 9 2004
By MRnuTty
Format:Audio CD
WOW! When I first bought this, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I remember the quirky Sweater song and how sweet it was. I put it into my cd player and was instantly blown away. My Name is Jonas is a powerful and strong opener to a powerful and strong cd. No One Else would be a better song on anyone else's album, but with Weezer's awesoem lineup, this is one of their lesser songs, but it still rocks. The World Has Turned picks up the pace after No One Else, and is a perfect prequel to Buddy Holly. I'm sure many of you have heard this song, alot. Some say this song gets way annoying after the 500th time, but I can't understand that. This is a catchy, awesome song, with an INCREDIBLE video (check out Weezer's Video Capture Device for that one). The Sweater Song will capture anyone's heart, it is so good. Surfwax USA is a classic surf song. Say It Aint So is in my mind the best song ever written. It blends great guitar and bass with beautiful lyrics. Amazing. In the Garage is a cool song about Weezer's time spent in their garage, surrounded by Kiss posters and Dungeons&Dragons gear. Holiday is a song that, like No One Else, suffers from being on such a good album. Only in Dreams is beautiful, and that is the only way it can be explained. This album is a must have for any music fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Before The River Got All Murky June 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oh man this album is rockin' to the MAX. I'll tell you a story. One time my mom and dad took me on a trip to Botswana to celebrate my great intelligence. Now while we were going over there tragedy struck and cannibals attacked us and ate my parents but they spared me because I had a copy of the blue album in my back pocket. The cannibal man felt that this object has super duper TOUGH powers so they all backed away and I was free. I've cheated death with this thing many other times, and for good reason too. Rivers Cuomo, one of the most unworthyingly adored singers in recent melody really creates some funky FRESH stuff that isn't lame like Matthew Sweet or any of that other 'power pop' crap. This is power pop right here, it's filled with energy, enthusiasm, and heart and it has HOOKS too. And by sounding fresh what I REALLY mean is that they managed to somewhat rip off Pavement with out looking stupid. But this cd takes no time to get to business and start kickin' ass. My Name Is Jonas starts out the album wonderfully, sending the album into full gear. The next highlight is the emoey The World Has Turned And Left Me, that would be bad in the hands of other bands like say Dashboard Confessional, but they do a good job of making it sound tragic but not too overemotional. But seriously there is not a bad track here, and Weezer really hit the mark, unlike later albums. Other highlights include the singles Buddy Holly, Undone, and Say It Aint So. Weezer sure were geeky in this album but at least they aren't uber-nerds to the tenth power without talent in Maladroit.

I usually hate people that say the older the CD, the better it is. Many think if they say the oldest CD is the best CD, they sound like true fans. It doesn't. Read more
