Weezer’s new album Everything Will Be Alright In The End brings the band back to its roots with the same lyrical catchiness and creative cords that made Weezer (1994) such a successful album, having sold 3.3 million copies in the United States.

The album features two singles, “Back to the Shack” released in July, and “Cleopatra” in September, along with 11 additional songs. “Back to the Shack” references the wish of the band to take itself back to their 1994 roots with a focus on ignoring current musical trends by featuring creative lyrics and an apparent skill with musical instruments. At the same time, it serves as an apology to their fans for the direction of the band  in the past couple of years with lines such as, “I’m sorry guys, I didn’t realize that I needed you so much” and features a plethora other hooks. The band certainly doesn’t stray away from displaying their skill on the drums or guitar, often times starting off a song with a catchy beat before dropping into the meat of the song. Each opening captivates the listener from the get-go. The album has a large amount of solos and instrumentals in it, with songs such as “The Wasteland” featuring nothing but.

Unfortunately, “Cleopatra” was the weak link in an almost flawless album. The song started strong with a catchy countryside beat, but the lyrics seem out of place from the rest of the album. Nevertheless, the song remains catchy to the core like the rest of the songs.

Everything Will Be Alright In The End certainly feels like the old Weezer, returning back to their ‘90 roots with the style of music new fans can get addicted to and old fans can fall in love with again.
