Album returns to roots..and colors
WeezerThe band Weezer, may be best known for their breakout album "The Blue Album". But in 2004 this band made turntables cool again with a re-release of the album that put them on the music map. But their new self titled album "Weezer", also known as "The Red Album" or "Weezer III" is the sixth studio album by the American rock band, released on June 3, 2008. This album was produced by Rick Rubin and Jacknife Lee. In this album unlike other albums, the vocals and songwriting was done by other band members, along with Rivers Cuomo.

The first(intro) song in this album, “Troublemaker,” is a song about being what you want to be no matter what. I'm a troublemaker/Never been a faker/Doin' things my own way/And never givin' up./I'm a troublemaker/Not a double-taker/I don't have the patience to keep it on the up. It seems to be more of a type of song you would play when you are alone and wanting to sing out loud to yourself.

The third track, “Pork and Beans,” has yet another idea about doing what you want to do no matter what, to be what you want to be. Imma do the things that i wanna do/I ain't got a thing to prove to you/I'll eat my candy with the pork and beans/Excuse my manners if i make a scene. A fun and dancy song.

In track four, the song, “Heart Songs,” pulls people in with the slow melody that seems to be the perfect beat to lay down and relax to. Singing about songs in their lives they have written. These are the songs.../these are my heart songs/they never feel wrong. Singing what you feel is the main idea we find in this song.

Track five comes along for us to hear, “Everybody Get Dangerous,” is about pulling out who you want to be and breaking out of your shell. Dancy and upbeat song to move around to. Very fun and beaty song.

In track number six, we hear, “Dreamin,” a song is heard about dreaming all the time about everything being okay. When you dream everything is going to be fine. When im dreamin/I know that it’s okay. Yet another song seeming to be about being yourself.

The last track, number ten, the song, “The Angel and the One,” a love song about not being the right one for a girl slows down the mood. Having to leave a girl you love. Looking to the girl he loves and having to let her go.

I found this album, to be overall a fun and beaty album, with different types of listening aspects. All the way from being who you want to be, to loving a girl you have to let go of, this album is great for anyone willing to listen. I normally wouldn’t have given it a shot, but I found it to be one amazing vocal performance and the lyrics really spoke to me personally. My rating out of five on this album would be a 4 out os 5.

Name: "Weezer"
Label: Geffen
Release Date: June 3, 2008
My rating: 4.0 out of 5
