Review: Everything Will Be Alright In The End by Weezer

Everything Will Be Alright In The End by WeezerYou’d be forgiven for calling Weezer’s Everything Will Be Alright In The End as a return to form. Their last two albums – 2009’s Raditude and 2010’s Hurley – had their moments, but was mostly unimaginative filler. Not that this record was a brilliantly inspired spark – although, yes, there’s Rivers Cuomo seemingly addressing his career and his personal life on the songs, to the point that it feels like a loose concept album – but it seems like Weezer has settled down and have found their groove again. They haven’t gotten swinging yet, but you definitely hope that they do. “Back to the Shack” feels like a return to the band’s 90s heyday, while “I’ve Had It Up To Here” is surprisingly groovy, and “Go Away” – a collaboration with Bethany Cosentino – is a much-needed sing-along moment. There are still some points amiss – it sort of gets tired by the end – but, well, you will feel hopeful after listening. Maybe Weezer can get their spark back. [NB] | 4/5
