#293: Weezer by Weezer

12.23.2011


Weezer by Weezer (1994)

Favorite Track(s): "My Name Is Jonas" and the first 9 seconds of "In the Garage" and "Holiday"

Thoughts: (Pre-Listening) I've only ever heard Weezer on the radio or in movies/TV shows, so this will be my first intentional listen. So it's nice that we're starting (and ending? Who knows if we'll see them again?) with their debut album (self-titled of course). I have to say though that what little I have heard of Weezer, I'm not a huge fan of. I could really take or leave it. Let's see if I've been missing out all this time.

(Post-Listening) Yeah, I didn't loathe it, but I think I still associate this kind of alt rock with Blink 182 and teenage boys. That's not a bad thing, it's just not music I take easily too. Listening to it felt like looking in from the outside to the world of an adolescent in the 90s, rather than actually transporting me there in first-person. I'd probably like it better the more I listened to it, but the chance of that happening is slim.

Is This Better Than Help!?: Nope.
