    It’s like live band karaoke, and everyone is invited, which is all this really boils down to at the end of the day. They’re not reinventing the wheel; they’re using it.

    A cover album the band's putting out for shits and giggles, and honestly, as a fan of most of these songs, it's nostalgic gold for me.

    Respectful enough to rouse any struggling family gathering but knowing enough to amuse those in on the joke, The Teal Album at once satirises the covers album and makes a decent stab at perfecting it.

    As well as they’ve delivered The Teal Album, they don’t quite hit the mark with every one of its takes, with their version ‘No Scrubs’ feeling more than a little bit uncomfortable.

    For an album with both a Eurythmics cover AND a Black Sabbath cover it’s a surprisingly listenable, albeit pointless entry in their discography, Weezer has spent a decade becoming more interesting to read about than listen to.

    The lifelessness of the covers ensures that it has a shelf life that isn’t much longer than your average meme.

    Whether it’s Africa, Black Sabbath’s Paranoid, a-ha's Take On Me, their hamfisted Billie Jean or (say it ain’t so) No Scrubs, every cover is unnecessary and pretty much unwanted. Cardigan-toting, alt-rock covering R&B was played out before it ever even happened.

    I hate reviewers. Reviewers absolutely suck. I'm not going to review the Teal Album, because it DOESN'T NEED TO BE REVIEWED. THIS IS NOT AI hate reviewers. Reviewers absolutely suck. I'm not going to review the Teal Album, because it DOESN'T NEED TO BE REVIEWED. THIS IS NOT A SERIOUS ALBUM. Listen, I get that this is their job, but seriously, does anyone REALLY care if they put together a little fun album to improve the hype for the Black album? Nobody should. This wasn't meant to please reviewers. They've never wanted to do that. My problem is that I hate that people look at this album and decide to hate it for no reason. It's not like it's a good album, but it doesn't deserve to be BEATEN TO THE GROUND by a group of **** with no sense of humor.

    I'm aware that the previous paragraph makes me sound ungrateful and full of hatred for society, but I'm generally not. I need to vent. I'm giving it a 10 to compensate for the lousy reviews from especially lousy reviewers.

    2nd time listening and I still like it. I don't care about what everyone else says. I loved how it was a surprise album as well.

    This album of straightforward karaoke covers is somehow less embarrassing than the followup Black album.

    Remove the stick. It's a fun album.

    No, they're not necessary. No, they're not even that good. But Weezer isn' taking themselves seriously

    No, they're not necessary. No, they're not even that good. But Weezer isn' taking themselves seriously and neither should you (on this record)

    Some of the covers are okay, others are terrible, all are inferior to their original versions. None of the songs on this album make anySome of the covers are okay, others are terrible, all are inferior to their original versions. None of the songs on this album make any deviations from the source material. The music is by no means unlistenable, I would just question anyone who would rather listen to any of these covers than their original versions. It's a fun album, but by no means revolutionary.
