Rivers Cuomo and Scott Shriner of Weezer play back-to-back at a concert in Ontario. Their new album, “Everything Will Be Alright in the End”, has been a huge success with their fans. The band hopes to continue to appease their audience moving forward.

On Oct. 7 2014, Weezer released their ninth studio album, titled “Everything Will Be Alright in the End”. It is the third Weezer album produced by Ric Ocasek, and the first released by Republic Records.

“[Rivers Cuomo] used his left brain (logic) to access his right brain (emotion) to create what might not be the best Weezer album, but most definitely is the perfect Weezer album, at least right now,” Alternative Press said.

Weezer starts off the album with the explosive track “Ain’t Got Nobody”, followed up by the album’s chilling lead single, “Back to the Shack.”

The album only continues to grow stronger as it moves forward, with brilliant tracks in “I’ve Had It Up to Here” and “The British Are Coming”. Cuomo also produces a lyrical masterpiece with “Da Vinci”.

“Even Da Vinci couldn’t paint you,

Stephen Hawking couldn’t explain you,

Rosetta Stone could not explain you”

  • Weezer, Da Vinci

Yes, that’s a Weezer song. The eighth track on the album is a very strong follow up. “Go Away,” featuring Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino. Weezer ends the album with the fantastic “Futurescope Trilogy.”

“While there’s back-to-basics glee in the album’s geeky power-chord pop tracks, a largely instrumental three-song closing suite is neatly epic,” said Boston Globe.

Weezer’s latest album has certainly pleased fans, giving them a blast from the past. “Everything Will Be Alright in the End” brings back flashes of “Blue” and “Pinkerton.” All in all, it is a very solid album and listening to it is highly recommended.
