I feel like I'm pretty balanced when it comes to this Weezer album. I bought it when it originally came out. And I didn't hate it like 99% of the people and critics. I thought it was good and a logical step forward in Weezer's music. I mean come on, the songs had changed, but the lyrics were even more personal. And the music was rawer. But it didn't matter, everyone hated it. And I thought it was great.
Now flash forward 16 years and the record is looked at in a completely new light. Instead of a piece of garbage, many people see it as the holy grail of music. A 90's staple. They love it as much as they used to hate it. I agree about the 90s staple feeling. But a perfect untouchable album? Heck no. There are some rough songs here that could've used a little more work in my opinion (i.e. No Other One for example). And some of the lyrics would've probably been reworked if it was a Weezer record now.
But with all this said, it's the same 4 star CD it always has been. If you don't have it, but are a Weezer fan, or even a 1990s music fan, then get this album today. Good stuff guaranteed.
