    Incredibly boring, formulaic, and uninspired; inevitably, it has a few bright moments, but given the blue album and Pinkerton, why in the world would you settle for this??

    Amid all the bitching and moaning are some of the finest songs of Weezer's career. [May 2002, p.118]
  2. Maladroit combines the best parts of the three previous Weezer albums: creamy guitar riffs, addictive beats, staple "hoo hoo's" and the brilliant mystique of Cuomo’s lyrics.
  3. Be forewarned: There's not much along the lines of "Island in the Sun" here.... Still, there are plenty of smart hooks and catchy vocals throughout.
