So I thought I’d write something about Raditude, Weezer’s new album. Overall, I like it and there’s a good few songs that I could play over and over. And then there’s one song that I won’t be listening to again.
01. (If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To 5/5
This is the first single from the album which I’ve already said I really like. It’s catchy, upbeat and sounds Weezer-ish.
02. I’m Your Daddy 3/5
A little repetitive but it’s still got a good rhythm.
03. The Girl Got Hot 5/5
Despite the subject of this song, I think it’s got a really good beat and I like the “oooooh oh” bits.
04. Can’t Stop Partying (featuring Lil Wayne) 1/5
Do not like. I actually think it’s a pretty rubbish song. While the chorus is alright, the remainder of the song is just not what I expect from a band with a back catalog like Weezer’s. Will probably never listen to this again. :/
05. Put Me Back Together 3/5
Not too bad, really nice pop melody going on. Not too keen on the chorus, but the overall song is alright.
06. Trippin’ Down the Freeway 5/5
One of my favourites from the album – it flows really well throughout and I love the solo.
07. Love Is the Answer 3/5
This is quite good, I think the Indian style and vocals compliment the whole song, but then the song itself just sounds boring.
08. Let It All Hang Out 4/5
Love love love the guitar in this and it’s got a retro Weezer feel about it which is always good.
09. In the Mall 4/5
The lyrics are a little silly, but I quite like that. It’s got a good beat and it’s pretty easy to listen to.
10. I Don’t Want to Let You Go 5/5
This is also one of my favourites. I really love the melody, the lyrics and the build up to the second half of the song. I love cheesy songs, and the “baa baa”s towards the end make this song for me. x)
11. Get Me Some 4/5
I like the heavy rock beat and guitars in this, and the solo is great.
12. Run Over by a Truck 4/5
I love the jazzy feel of this, with the piano and the bass line. Really catchy and fun to listen to.
13. The Prettiest Girl in the Whole Wide World 5/5
Really like the beat, guitars, lyrics. Just a really nice song. Fast becoming my favourite off the whole album.
14. The Underdogs 3/5
I don’t think I’ve given this enough listens, so I can see it growing on me in time. At the moment I’m enjoying the chorus a lot, but I just don’t seem to be listening to it as much as the other tracks. It seems to rely too much on the lyrics.
So I think overall I’ll given Raditude a 4/5. That seems higher than I expected, but I think that’s just because of my dislike for Can’t Stop Partying.
