  • Photographers: Spike Jonze; Peter Orth .
  • Arranger: Sigmund Spaeth.
  • There's a demented pop fanaticism to Weezer you gotta love. Weezer's debut, produced by former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, combines Pixies roller-coaster guitar rides with a helping of Beatle-esque moptop harmonies. Ocasek's production and Weezer's strong material will bring a glimmer of recognition to the eyes of anyone who remembers the Cars' melodic pop hooks.
  • Weezer's songs are groovy garage sales you wish happened every weekend. Songs like "The World Turned And Left Me Here" and "Surf Wax America" betray the heart of a kid who would rather skateboard to work every day than face up to the responsibility of buying a car.
  • Rivers Cuomo's wit and songwriting chops are evident in "In The Garage," where he sums up his generation's fascination with kitsch pop culture. Cuomo readily makes fun of Kiss posters and his own "stupid words" and "stupid songs," but later, in "Say It Ain't So," his self-mocking seems more like self-protection. After a decade of divorced parents, Cuomo comes to terms with a childhood he didn't want to give up. "Dear Daddy I write you in spite of years of silence," he admits, begging him to "Say It Ain't So."
  • WEEZER breathes life into the bloated corpse of guitar rock. If they'd only stay little till their pop records wore out, maybe more bands would be as enjoyable as Weezer.

Spin (4/04, pp.87-8) - "Feedback duels with adroit finger-picking; galloping punk pastiches break for bridges that genuflect in the church of Brian Wilson." - Grade: A

Entertainment Weekly (10/14/94, p.60) - "...college-radio-friendly... anti-cool quartet strums solid pop melodies with singsongy, anthem-like choruses, peppered with grunge fuzz that at first seems strangely at odds with its self-deprecating lyrics..." - Rating: B

Q (3/95, p.106) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...this is a loud, well-crafted, AOR-friendly, classic pop-rock given a left-of-centre twist by [Rivers] Cuomo's mildy eccentric world view..."
