Weezer ~ Make Believe
Taking three-years between albums has made Weezer grow slower and more sober. But on its fifth disc the Los Angeles quartet is no more secure about its place in the world than it was a decade ago in longing tunes like "The World Has Turned And Left Me Here." Singer Rivers Cuomo, still struggling with adolescence at 34, is all apologies. "All I have to do is swing and I'm the hero/ But I'm a zero," he sings on "Perfect Situation," and "I am terrified of all things/ Frightened of the dark," on the lighters-aloft power ballad "Hold Me." The band, meanwhile, keeps things from getting too heavy by punctuating the songs with a familiar rush of bouncy new-wave melodies and fizzing power-pop riffs resulting in the hair-flinging metal of the future D.A.R.E. theme song and album high-point, "We Are All On Drugs." --Aidin Vaziri

Ever since the Blue album, I've been looking for a consistently good Weezer album. With all the albums in between I've found it very hard to keep listening, but with this one, it's very hard to not stop.
Singles already include "Beverly Hills" and "We Are All on Drugs", which are pretty good songs. If they go for a third single, which they should, I'd recommend either "This Is Such A Pity", "The Perfect Situation", or the power ballad "My Best Friend."
But hey, this is a Weezer album, not Weezer songs surrounded by a couple of singles like the albums between Blue and this one. GO GET IT!
All the songs are catchy and easy listens, but i don't feel that this album is very deep or as fun as the other weezer albums and some of the lyrics are too cheesy/cliche for my taste.
I like Weezer, I really do. (and while Brian Bell is a bonus, it's not that. entirely.)
all digressions aside, this album really is not brilliant or in all actuality, that good.
ca sonne un peu comme du vieux Cars.
sur la chanson Beverly Hills la musique resemble un peu
a I love rock'n'roll (Joan Jett).
pour moi un des meilleurs albums de l'été.

"Make Believe" is definitely a new sound for weezer. The inclusion of keyboards/piano on most of the tracks is an obvious change in the make-up and sound of the band. Read morePublished on May 18 2005 by Amii Chong
