The Best Hard Rock Album of the 21st Century ...
Maladroit by Weezer (2002, Interscope)
Well, yes, I know this album's nearly 6 years old.
So why am I blogging about it today? Well, it occured to me that maybe you've never listened to it. It wasn't exactly a commercial smash.
Also know as Weezer's Heavy Metal album, Maladroit Fucking Rocks from start to finish.
Its a guitar album.
Its full of hooks and has the humor that we've come to love from Weezer, without being silly.
There are even some morose Pavement-esque moments on this disc that you will love if you
a.) enjoy Hard Rock
b.) have a clue.
Honestly, I don't get paid for doing this, so why am I raving about a Weezer album from 2002?
ANSWER: I listened to it this morning.
So if you're waiting for Chinese Democracy, but don't have Maladroit yet - Get Off Your Ass.
