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 an alternate Audio CD 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.Read more ›
The only thing odd about it was that it didn't come with the traditional "Original Master Sleeve" all the MoFi pressings I own came with. It seems to be built the same way but lacks the usual recognizable branding these sleeves usually have printed on them. Anybody else noticed that?
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.Read more ›
