Weezer - Maladroit mp3 album

Maladroit is the fourth studio album by American rock band Weezer, released on May 14, 2002 by Geffen Records. Produced by the band, it was their first album to feature bassist Scott Shriner, following the departure of former bassist Mikey Welsh in 2001. Musically, the album features heavy metal riffs uncommon to Weezer's previous releases.

With Maladroit, Weezer has finally given the full punt to the nerd-rock label they sorta invented and always shunned, settling instead for being our generation's version of Cheap Trick. Right, so now's the part where I'm accused of underestimating Maladroit's youthful relevancy, missing the possibility that this album might mean as much to today's disenfranchised high school crowd as The Blue Album or Pinkerton meant to me in more innocent times. Maybe so, but it should be noted that I was a late-blooming Weezer fan, having written them off back in their first heyday and only cultivating a true appreciation for them over the last couple years.

Maladroit has some good tunes, but one song off Pinkerton could beat this album down. Where did it all go wrong for Weezer". Go back to 1994, the year of the Blue Album. The members of Weezer, Rivers Cuomo, Brian Bell, Matt Sharp and Pat Wilson, were swimming in success. Undone - The Sweater Song was climbing up the charts. It's fun and innocent lyrics overtop of undeniable catchiness was contagious. People scooped up the Blue Album, and within months went platinum. Following Buddy Holly and Say It Ain't So, Rivers went back to Harvard for studies.

Released in May of 2002, Maladroit is Weezer’s fourth studio album. With the addition of bassist Scott Shriner after the 2001 departure of Mikey Welsh, the band developed a harder, heavier sound. For the first time, Weezer began to rely heavily on their fans. Setting up message boards and communicating with fans, frontman Rivers Cuomo began to post demos and take feedback.

Maladroit is the fourth studio album by the American alternative rock band Weezer, released on May 14, 2002 on Geffen Records. This is the first Weezer album to feature bassist Scott Shriner, who joined the band in 2001 after the breakdown and departure of Mikey Welsh. During the latter half of 2001, Rivers Cuomo began to write many new songs, and their overall style reflected a harder rock. At the time, he was reading lots of Nietzsche.

Bands used to make records like this all the time. They'd release an album, tour all year, write a bunch of songs, record 'em, release another album a year later. Since hardly anybody - not even indie bands - did that in 2002, it's a remarkable event when Weezer does exactly that, especially following a half a decade of inactivity. But, it's hard not to think that this is the way it should be done by all bands, since Maladroit retains the high quality of The Green Album.

Weezer Maladroit US CD album. After taking five leisurely years to follow up on 1996's Pinkerton, Weezer are apparently on a roll. Arriving just over 12 months after The Green Album, Maladroit finds the Los Angeles power-pop band in the midst of a particularly fertile creative period.

Genre: Alternative Rock. Welcome back to episode 5 of charlie17 listens to weezer’s shitty back catalogue. Tonight I’m listening to an album that people say is not shitty, 2002’s Maladroit. My expectations are at rock f cking bottom after hearing raditude, so let’s just see if this album is alright. American Gigolo: Has a lot of heavy instrumentation that’s actually well implemented which is surprising considering.
