Weezer_-_Everything_Will_Be_Alright_In_The_End

I was a HUGE Weezer fan in high school and college. Blue Album is a near perfect album and I even enjoyed Maladroit. But off the top of my head,  I can’t name a single track and/or album title after Maladroit was released in 2002. After reading Robin Hilton’s favorite albums of 2014, I though it fair to give an old favorite a second chance. After first listen, I’m hopeful. I hear “old” Weezer clawing back for a place in my listening rotation. Is is this the Blue Album part 2? Definitely not. But it’s not fair for me to expect that. If I must compare to an older album, it’s closer to Green Album part 2 (which isn’t too shocking, both were produced by Ric Ocasek, along with the almighty Blue Album). While this album hasn’t resonated with me quite like it did with Mr. Hilton, I was pleasantly surprised with how much of it I did enjoy, especially “Lonely Girl”, “Eulogy For A Rock Band”, and “Go Away”, which features Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno. (p.s. the album cover art is super cool, one of my favorites this year)

Say what you want about Lana Del Rey, but this cover of the Disney classic is fantastic (and pretty much the only good thing about this film).
