I gotta admit, I have a bit of a soft spot for this album.

this was pretty popular when I was in college, a few songs were tolerable for me, but it hasn't aged well, I can take or leave it

Funny thing is, music from my childhood has mostly aged well in my ears, but music from college I can't stand to listen to. Of course, most of the college years was the grunge rip offs

I can't stand this album. It has the weirdest topics in it. *** women, red heads, not liking a Green Day concert, etc. The sounds annoy me. It's the only Weezer album I don't like. I love Blue, Green, and Make Believe.

But there are a few things I like about this album. "Tired of Sex" is one of my favorite Weezer songs. "Getchoo" is good too. "El Sorcho" is hilarious at the beginning of it with the sounds but still annoying at the same time. And "Butterfly" is has a nice acoustic feel to it and it's a nice sentiment. But overall, this album isn't me. I tried to like it as the big Weezer fan that I am. But I just can't.

i think it's a fkin kick ass album, though the blue album and the rest of them were all pretty good. with some really punchy and catchy songs.. this was one of their most honest albums!

depressing it was but often the most depressing works in music/art/literature etc. are the best ones.

not to mention the sound of the album was really great and original.. nothing like their other albums where in my opinion sounded a bit too clean.. this is one of my all time favourite albums...

only a true weezer fan would understand, this album helped through a lot of rough times in my life.

I remember hating it as a follow up to the blue album but then it slowly grew on me. "Why Bother" is a great track... especially at that time when I was in college not really getting laid.

That's part of the charm, silly. It's one of the only pop punk albums worth listening to. It's ambitious in its use of the opera "Madame Butterfly" as an under-sketch and very clever in its offbeat variations on the genre's lyrical norms.

the blue album = genius.
everything else by weezer = mediocre/bad
the green album was pretty decent i guess.

the red album is gonna be balls too.
