Product Description

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

By J. GARRATT on 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.

No, they arn't sellouts. This is their best record(tyed with Maladroit, which, in all honesty, is maybe an "inch" better). Every single track is a worthy keeper. It is sequenced thoughtfully and beautifully. Ric Ocasek's production value is evidenced on tracks like "Photograph", "Island in the Sun" and "O Girlfriend", among others. The melodies are SUPREMELY gorgeous. "Simple Pages" and "Smile" are bittersweet songs of pining adoration willing to cross oceans to prove love. I have yet to complain about this record, and I've listened to it many, many, MANY times. "Photograph" should have been a single(my only gripe)and "Teenage Victory Song" would have been an awesome inclusion(it's obviously a b-side)but Weezer and co. did a perfect pop/rock record that has a bit of the majesty of stellar 80's new wave, 60's rock and even 50's doo-wop! (I'm not kidding!) To any nay-sayer who bemoans this as a sell-out record, I'd simply ask them to buy "Maladroit". That would be the record for them, because it accents alot of the Weezer eccentricities we've come to love. This record may not be for Weezer purists, but it stands as their very best! Solid Solid Solid! Full of joy("Photograph,"Island in the sun") and menace("Hash Pipe") as well as pining and unrequited love("O Girlfriend", "Simple Pages") I know that record 5 is to be produced by Rick Rubin(who helped the Red Hot Chilli Peppers with "By the Way" and "Californication") so I'm excpecting a more abrasive sound in the style of "Maladroit". Anyway, all in all, don't complain, buy this C.D. and experience a C.D that outdistances most out there by a looooong shot! Cheers!

Plain and simple, this is basic rock and roll. No special solos, no special melodies, just two-three minutes of straight forward rock and roll. Bang your head, sing along, whatever. It's just pure fun.
One thing you'll notice with the lyrics is that they are pretty much straight forward. The band seems to have taken the phrase "Why say it in a paragraph when you can say it in a sentance" to heart with this album. There is no sign of elaborate descriptions in any of these songs, which is both a relief and a downside. On the plus, no cryptic lyrics (if you're not into that). On the downside, not really anything to think deeply about (if that's what you're into).
Here are a few highlights:
Don't Let Go- Driving guitars and some pounding drums. Singing along is a must for the chorus. "Don't let go. Ooh whoah whoa."
Photograph- Interesting opening, leading into the only harmonizing on the album. Followed by more driving guitars, and a simple solo. You'll pick up the melody the first time around.
Hash Pipe- The first single off of the album. Probably the hardest song on the album (by hard I mean hard rock). This shows the singer's strength in hitting the high notes and coming back to the bass notes.
Island in the Sun- Probably the softest song on the album (but it doesn't stay that way for long). Very simple, telling the story of a place to get away.
Glorious Day- Probably my favorite song on the album. Not much to say that I haven't said before. Driving guitars (seeing a pattern yet?) and simple lyrics are on this one too.
Overall, this is a great album. Short, sweet, and to the point. Besides, why play something in an hour when you can play it in half an hour?

One goes into this album expecting the Blue Album, merely from the cover. It's self-titled, associated with a color and has a picture of the band on it. And for the most part, it is very much in the style of the Blue Album. For a third album, it holds its own. My biggest complaint about the Green album is how extremely short it is. It is basically an LP. At 28 minutes, it is less than half of the CD. The power of the songs that are on it leave a listener begging for more. If you're looking for another Pinkerton, this is not your dish. It is very much down the road of the Blue Album. The songs are close to the sound and originality of Blue. Some may say they are not quite up to par, but I think they hold their own just the same. It does not have as many songs that ingrain themselves in your mind as Blue did, but that's mostly because it's less than 3/4 the length of Blue. If you want to get your money's worth, it's not worth as much as the others minute for minute, just because of its length, but it is still worth more than most other things available in stores.
