The album is fun, silly and a joyous homage to musical peers that they must have listened to at some point in their youth. No one can say, other than the band members, how this selection of songs influenced their own personal craft. However, to say it’s boring is ignoring the fact that these lads could have easily twisted the knife on all of them but chose to remain faithful to the recipe that made them great. What this is is a sonic love letter and we get to hear it. It makes me respect them more. Bravo gents!
Lot of haters, like a song has never been redone or sampled
Get over it, don’t listen to it
River gives no fuqs
And it’s kinda nice
(Srsly, no scrubs??? I’m ded.)
LOVE the throwback!
I have always loved Weezer. They take me back to a time before kids and bills and the adult life in general. I love this album!

John is there
What was the iTunes reviewer smoking when he thought Weezer covered "I'm A Believer" for the Shrek soundtrack? Even the aboriginal tribes of Australia know it was Smash mouth.
Weezer and Tears for Fears
Weezer is not Smashmouth
Love the album, but don't know who wrote the description. Weezer was not on the Shrek soundtrack, that's Smashmouth. Do your job better.
Album is solid
The album is solid, but the review stating they covered "I'm a Believer" on Shrek is off... This album is better than any Smash Mouth album.
Was hoping for a real weezer twist, but something’s should just be left alone. I really did enjoy Africa which is why they received the stars at all.
