Album Review: 'Weezer' (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Weezer; Genre: Rock

Imagine the result of a marketing experiment designed to create the ultimate college-radio-friendly product, and you've almost conjured up Weezer. This anti-cool quartet strums solid pop melodies with singsongy, anthem-like choruses, peppered with grunge fuzz that at first seems strangely at odds with its self-deprecating lyrics, then makes total sense as a gambit for rock credibility. B
