Reviewer: Bud Scoppa (Uncut)
Publishing date: Unlisted
Starting with irresistible lead single 'Pork and Beans', a chunk of Weezer’s sixth album delivers the band’s trademark combo of crushing power chords, pop-culture references and a healthy dose of ironic self-ridicule.
The concluding 'The Angel and One' (sic) works its way to outright grandeur and both trade irony for a ton of sentiment – Rivers Cuomo’s psychotherapy must be working. It’s just like him to slap on a smiley face while the world is going to hell.
