I'll start off by saying most tribute CDs are really bad and to fans of the band(that the tribute is to) half of the songs are offensive to the band and very horrid to them cause they try something original and strange to make the song sound original, that's the case on some of the songs on here sometimes.
Most of the bands on here are either pop-punk bands or "emo". Dashboard, Ataris , etc. Most do fair jobs covering the songs and aren't too bad and are enjoyable. But bands I actually liked did the crappy makeover I meantioned before like the Impossibles, the Stereo and a band I've never heard of Mycomplex. For some reason the addition of screaming in Weezer songs from bands like Grade(I don't like the singer's voice at all) and Affinity are good in ears. The rest is pretty good in my book but not great as in good as weezer(I just said Dashboard is good shoot me).
My favorite is probably Mock Orange's rendition of "Only in Dreams". It's shorter and emotional, but nothing will beat the one that is #10 on the first S/T.
To sum it up a classic GOOD BAD and the AVERAGE.
The Good:Piebald "No One Else"
Mock Ornge "Only in Dreams" + more
The Bad:The Impossibles "The Good Life"
Mycomplex "Tired of Sex"
The Average:The Ataris "Butterfly"
The Stereo "El Scorcho" + more

The topic of a bunch of bands covering weezer could be very volatile. This album is an excellent example of this. There are some excellent tracks on this album which really show that weezer songs lend themselves amazingly to all sorts of rock genres. Mycomplex's cover of tired of sex, and the Impossible's The good life are very creative. I also reccomend Mock Orange's Only in dreams, Midtown's susanne, and Affinity's my name is Jonas.
However, there are also tracks on this album that make you want to grab the nearest sharpened pencil and commit hari-kari with it just to hear what it's like if you take a perfectly good weezer track, strip it of any soul it had, kick all the talent out of it, mix it in a garbage can with trite meaninglessness and reproduce it void of everything good. Further Seems Forever, Christopher John, The Stereo.... shame on all of you. I hope you cry yourselves to sleep at night knowing that instead of taking a song and doing something creative or valuable with it you have just played it soullessly and whined out the lyrics. If i wanted to hear no musical talent and crying i would turn on R&B. Leave emo out of this you talentless hacks.
I recommend buying this album if you are into the math rock scene, or have a little punk blood running in your veins. Just recognize there will be a few tracks you will skip. If you want to listen to emo, there is enough saves the day or get up kids albums for you to buy to keep you happy for years bopping up and down with your pigtails and retro clothes you payed to much for. Leave my weezer alone.

being a die-hard fan of the =w=, I was totally let down with this compilation. Maybe my expectations were too high or I was imagining I'd get more out of it, but something was definitely missing.
The major problem with it was the fact that at least 3/4 of the songs sound almost EXACTLY like the original weezer track. Good examples: Piebald's "No One Else." (one of my favorite songs which gets semi-butchered), Midtown's "Suzanne." The songs are an exact replica of the original album version and, quite frankly, Rivers' yelps and squeals are a heckuva lot better than these emo-fied screams.
However, there are some definite high spots on the album. Christopher John aka Elliot's rendition of "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here" fully capitulates what, in my case, i felt when I first heard the song. Slowed down, the song is turned almost into an enchanting ballad. In a similar vein, The Stereo's cover of "El Scorcho" has enough variation and consistency to make it a stand out track. Chris Carrabba's rendition of "Jamie" lives up to his relatively lofty standards as a recording artist, adding the emotional rawness of the acoustic guitar.
In short, a few tracks on this album make it worth buying. However, there is enough disappointments to also make the casual buyer stray away from it. If you're a hardcore =w= fan, go for it, take the plunge and I'm sure you'd enjoy at least most of the songs. However, if you want to hear great covers, be very wary of this.
I'll be getting it because I'm a weezer nut. But that's just me.

I like a tribute album to transform the songs, I like when the band redo a song with their sound, imagining it as if it was one of their song. Not to just play the song a the original one.
In that sense, this album is not a good tribute. No one else, Surwax america and some others songs just sound the same as Weezer did them. But some songs are impressive. The Good life by the impossibles is excellent, the way they sing the chorus the hard drums and the way the guitar solo erupt are amazing. Jamie by dashboard confessional is quiet good too, beeing more emotional. The World has turned and left me here is really slow, maybe a little too much, but the piano is good. Just like the piano intro on Say it ain't so. Only in dreams is very different but makes a good cover, as for My name si jonas wich is more hardcore.
Overall, I would call this tribute an underground tribute to weezer. But their is some interesting stuff. I recommend it to all hardcore weezer fans.
