Product Description

Amazon.ca

Widely credited with being the band who kicked off (and merged) the two sub-genres of punk-pop and geek rock, The Green Album is Weezer's attempt to wrestle back their crown from the upstart likes of Blink 182 and Wheatus. The Green Album, recorded nearly five years after their previous album, the widely ignored (but wholly excellent) Pinkerton, sees the band reunited with former Cars frontman Rik Ocasek, who produced their multi-platinum debut way back in 1994. The result is an album of catchy pop gems, more accessible than Pinkerton, and with a quicker pace and more sonic depth than Weezer. Though the high-pitched harmonies of former bassist Matt Sharp are missed (he left to focus on his own band, the Rentals), lead singer/songwriter Rivers Cuomo still has a way with an infectious hook and a sing-along chorus, especially on "Don't Let Go", "Photograph" and "Knockdown Drag Out". The album's first single, "Hash Pipe", kicks off with a bass-heavy, 70s-sounding metal riff, while "Island in the Sun" is as summery as its title suggests. At just over 30-minutes long, The Green Album may leave some listeners feeling a little cheated, but overall, this is a gem of an album, small yet perfectly formed. It is also a worthy return for a band whose influence is undeniable, if under appreciated. --Robert Burrow

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than red Oct. 31 2012
By Bruiser TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is better than their red album. The songs on here are more of the rocker type. The only song that I disagree with is "Hash Pipe". Come on Weezer, do not encourage that kind of stuff, be a good role model.

3.0 out of 5 stars tony moore is a dooshbag July 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This record isnt pinkerton or the blue record but I'd rather listen to this record than any of the fake,emotionless crap that dominates the commercial music world at this point...(staind,limpbizkit,lincoln park,creed,nicklebackt,ect or whatever...Hey tony lets hear one that u wrote,cause u sound like a musician without the chops who cant make it...

Sure, i loved this CD when i first bought it. I actually listened to it all of the time....everywhere. But as i grew as a person and as a music enthusiast, i realized pretty quickly that this CD isnt worth getting. And then i just as quickly brought it in to my local used CD shop.
The songs are catchy...real catchy. If youre just looking for a catchy CD that's fun and void of any lyrical value, then this is a great CD.
If youre looking for the best of Weezer, then look elsewhere: the Blue CD and Pinkerton (especially Pinkerton) are THE BEST Weezer CDs...they have the music, they have the amazing lyrics, and they never, never, ever get old. The songs on their first two CDs are simply amazing. Youve never heard geek-rock this good, with so much to say...so much meaning...so much emotion....so much genuine feeling.
Weirdly enough, i bought Pinkerton after i got the Green album. I guess that's what ruined this CD for me...i listened to Pinkerton and realized how sub-sub-sub-par the Green CD really is compared to their earlier stuff.
Forget this one....it is really just average rock --- the kind of stuff that gets radio play, but isnt worth the money you pay for the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un gran album - A great album June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
El primer disco de Weezer, me parece bueno. Realmente. Punto. No me parece un GRAN ALBUM. El 2do.....en fin....flojito...pero el 3ro....!! Qué gran álbum el Album Verde. Corto, efectivo, apasionante, delicioso...No da respiro, pega y pega, un gran tema al lado del otro. Genial.
The First Weezer record is a fine one.Really is. Period. Not a GREAT ONE. The 2nd, well.....not too good...but the 3rd one....What a grat album is the Green Album! A short one, passionate, delightful...Breathless, hit and hit, one great song after another great song. A work of genius.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upbeat, fun, but way too short April 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you liked the Blue Album, you'll like the Green Album. It's chock full of catchy pop songs that are much more in the spirit of the Blue Album than Pinkerton. "Don't Let Go" and "Photograph" lead off, and are both high-powered, guitar-driven rockers that set a strong pace for this CD. There's not a weak song on here.
The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is its length. 28 minutes? Even LPs and 8-track tapes had more than 28 minutes of music on them. This should have been combined with "Maladroit" and released as a single CD of a more reasonable length.

4.0 out of 5 stars A primer of sorts April 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I too was very surprised at how short the Green album was when it was released in 2001. I remember thinking that after a 5 year hiatus, Weezer was bending the rules a little by giving us an album that didn't even clear the 30 minute mark. And over time, I realized that there is a valid reason for this.
Each song follows the exact same formula as the one before it. Verse, a chorus, second verse, chorus, a solo that mimmicks the verse, a chorus, and the final chord. Thus, everything on the Green album ends up sounding like sixties surf rock.
And this would be an infuriating thing if Rivers Cuomo did not know how to write a good pop song. But the fact remains that he does. His gift for melody is truly his strong point, and the Green album doesn't even try to pretend to be something it isn't.
Of course, the album does run out of steam by the second half. Simple Pages and Glorious Day are nothing to marvel at since they sound like something Cuomo wrote while he was sleeping. But Smile and O Girlfriend save the second side from being a complete bore.
So it's best to look at the Green album as a primer for things to come, like Maladroit and whatever happens in 2004. If you look to it as a massive comeback or a bold artistic statement, you will be disappointed. But take it for what it is: a 28 minute blast of pop.

5.0 out of 5 stars The =w= March 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
First of all, all those people who are saying that weezer has no talent i hope i see you on the street so i can beat your a$$es for being so ignorant. The band and there music has never dissapointed me. Second of all stop comparing this album to blue, and pinkerton. Every band has an album that fans name the best, and it seems that the band cant ever match that, and its not going to happen. Third, stop talking about what u dont know, this is weezers music, its art created from feeling and their personal state of mind, you cant label it if you dont understand it. This is weezer for gods sake, we need to appreciate it while its around.

1.0 out of 5 stars ugh March 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is a terrible album,it's like they weren't even trying,i didnt expect much from the first single hash pipe but i figured i'd get this album on vinyl just for whatever's sake cause i had just gotten a turntable. this is a completely unredeeming release, it's all filler, incredibly short and just boring. pinkerton rules and the blue one rocks too,you don't want this, believe me.
