Japanese Version featuring Two Bonus Tracks: 'island in the Sun', and 'living Without You'. Also Contains Seven Enhanced Video Tracks.
After taking five leisurely years to follow up on 1996's Pinkerton, Weezer are apparently on a roll. Arriving just over 12 months after The Green Album, Maladroit finds the Los Angeles power-pop band in the midst of a particularly fertile creative period. "Dope Nose," which is easily stronger than anything on the last album, flexes a sinister shout-along chorus and vintage Van Halen riffs, while the potent garage-punk blast of "Fall Together" wipes out any lingering discomfort over the thoroughly Sugar Ray-sounding "Island in the Sun." In a sense The Green Album was just a taster for this, the blissfully thunderous main dish. Sure, there are some deadpan emo moments ("Death and Destruction") littering the course, but mostly Maladroit is Weezer doing what they do best--inverting and embracing dumb rock stereotypes and somehow making them sound smart. --Aidin Vaziri --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

You can say its not as good as the first two, but you can't compare records. On the merits of this record, you get more than enough good songs to justify the purchase.
"American Giglo" shows that this will be harder Weezer record then what you expect, but it shows what Weezer have always done better than almost every other band: basic song structure with enough melody to keep you singing along for the rest of the song.
"Dope Nose" is a fairly simple pop song, as is "Keep Fishin'", both utilizing the power of melody. "Take Control" and "Fall Togather" rock harder than anything else in the Weezer catolog, and the standout track on the record, "Slave", proves that power pop can indeed save the world, or at least someone from buying a Nickleback record.
Of the thirteen songs on here, I could've done without the clumsy "Death and Destrcution" or the forgettable "Love Explosion", but these are small qualms. "Maladroit" is a worthy addition to the Weez catalog, and a good record all around.

This album is a good mix of Weezer songs with familiar sounds. Dope Nose sounds like a song you would hear off of the Green Album, except much more powerful. Read morePublished on April 4 2004 by Dave
