  1. Ultimately, it's Weezer's deft mixing of immediately hummable rock with lyrics that reveal Cuomo's own melancholy gaze on the pop landscape that makes Raditude a passionate surrender to growing up and a throw-your-arms-up-and-scream ride down the other side of the mid-life roller coaster.
  2. Raditude still feels like the product of Rivers Cuomo, who's no less unnerved by girls than he was before his 15 years of rock stardom.

    I thoroughly enjoy this album. If you're looking for the blue album you won't find it with Raditude. I think people forget that I thoroughly enjoy this album. If you're looking for the blue album you won't find it with Raditude. I think people forget that bands learn and grow with each passing year just people do. So what if it's trying to be a "pop" album? This album exhibits their fantastic musicianship, as well as well thought musical composition. It's what I know, love and expect from a Weezer Album!

    A veces, es increíble cómo te puede atrapar cierta mediocridad por parte de un artista que, es visible cómo se trata de una broma que ya teníaA veces, es increíble cómo te puede atrapar cierta mediocridad por parte de un artista que, es visible cómo se trata de una broma que ya tenía en mente Rivers y sus compadres. Con canciones pésimas, reflejándose dramáticamente con canciones como "Can't stop partying" y "In the mall", quizá guste de adolescentes que estén en su pleno vivir de aquellas juntas en donde las fiestas alocadas se desatan.

    Raditude, Weezer's 7th studio album, starts off in promising fashion with opening track "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want YouRaditude, Weezer's 7th studio album, starts off in promising fashion with opening track "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To". Next we have the unfortunately named "I'm You Daddy" which has a decent hook and a typical Weezer chorus. Unfortunately things go rapidly downhill from here and by the time we get to the end of the record you start feeling sorry for the once great Rivers Cuomo and the fact that a man who was once rightly considered a surf punk genius has been reduced to this. The last third of the album is painful to listen to. I have to give credit where its due for the first 2 tracks and a few others that tread along mediocrity territory without being offensively bad. If your a fan of early Weezer then avoid this to keep your romantic notions of the band intact. Full Review »
