Weezer (commonly known as the Blue Album) is the debut studio album by American rock band Weezer, released on May 10, 1994 by DGC Records. It was produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek and recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York City from August to September 1993. Founding guitarist Jason Cropper left during the recording, replaced by Brian Bell. The album reached number sixteen on the US Billboard 200, and was certified triple platinum.

Weezer, known better to fans as The Blue Album, is Weezer’s first and most successful studio album. It was released on May 10, 1994. Three strong singles ( Undone – The Sweater Song, Say It Ain’t So, and Buddy Holly ) pushed both the album and the band to the front of the post-Kurt Cobain alternative scene, and then even further into mainstream success. The album was produced by The Cars lead singer Ric Ocasek, after Weezer was pressured by Geffen Records to avoid a self-produced album. The album is ranked 297 of Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and 35 on their 100 Best Debut Albums of All Time. The Blue Album was certified gold in just seven months, and in nine months it had reached platinum status. Weezer (The Blue Album) Q&A.

Weezer (often referred to as The Blue Album and commonly abbreviated as TBA) is the debut album by Weezer. It was released on May 10, 1994 by Geffen Records. The album was produced by former Cars frontman Ric Ocasek and recorded in Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Weezer spawned the popular singles "Undone - The Sweater Song" and "Buddy Holly", both of which were responsible for launching Weezer into mainstream success with the aid of music videos directed by Spike Jonze.

Weezer, also known as The Blue Album, is the debut studio album by American rock band Weezer, released on May 10, 1994, through DGC Records. The album was produced by Cars frontman Ric Ocasek and recorded in Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Blogcritics Magazine gave the album a. score of 10/10 and asserted that "this is one of the most important debut albums of the last ten years.

Pinkerton, Weezer’s sophomore album, is often described as the tortured confessional to end all tortured confessionals, essentially a diary of Cuomo’s notorious Asian fetish. But Say It Ain’t So is just as raw, and arguably has more that its listeners can use, throwing its arms wide open to anyone who’s known the trauma of dad issues. For as classic as the album is considered now, Blue didn’t make the 1994 Pazz & Jop year-end critics’ poll. Back then, Weezer were considered alt opportunists or even Pavement ripoffs-a comparison that seems silly now, looking at the distinct rock strains since indebted to Cuomo. But MTV and radio airplay for Buddy Holly and Undone - The Sweater Song made Weezer huge, and The Blue Album went double-platinum within 15 months of its release.

Renews automatically. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The packaging is well done and the case is vibrant. As someone who's just starting a vinyl collection, it's comforting to feel like the hardware will stand the tests of time. The mastering is fantastic, I even found myself picking out some nuances that I hadn't heard, despite listening to this album 100+ times in my youth

thats what makes an album perfect to me, and what makes the blue album a game changer in rock music and. a perfect work that i highly doubt will be surpassed. i listened to this album this morning. then again in the afternoon. i cannot get enough of i. .

The unforgettable opener My Name Is Jonas opens up one of the greatest albums, not only of the 90's but of all time. At a time when Grunge was so popular it eventually killed itself (Literally) Weezer came along and broke all the boundaries of what Grunge did, it featured geeky songs (In The Garage, Buddy Holly) surf anthems (Surf Wax America) and extremely wonderful riffs that are so memorable it's like you got an implant into your brain (Holiday, No One Else, Say It Ain't So) this only foreshadowed Weezer's great discopgraphy of their next amazing two albums, one of which would become my all time favorite album ever. Weezer's Blue Album is absolutely unforgettable. This is possibly the second best debut album beside's Boston's self titled debut and just like it, it revolutionized Weezer's iconic sound that many would start to know of in later albums with songs like El Scorcho, Hash Pipe, Keep Fishin, Perfect Situation and Pork and Beans just to name a few. Amazing.9.9/10

¡Bam! Este disco es una inyección de energía y emociones traducidas en distorsión y letras personalmente explícitas. La apertura es prueba de ello: "My Name Is Jonas" hace alusión a la decepción que podría tener uno con la idea de ser adulto cuando se es infante, a cuando se llega a experimentar, de hecho, Rivers debe haberla experimentado, pues el tema encapsula excelentemente esa decepción. "No One Else" es un tema realmente pegadizo, más poppy que detalla la que sería la pareja ideal de Cuomo, y después de escuchar el tema, de muchos de sus seguidores. "The World Have Turned..." es otro tema con toques emo, pues lo palpable del desamor o del fracaso en otros aspectos es inexcusable. "Buddy Holly" es el single por excelencia que retrata el romance entre dos nerds y lo duro y difícil que es para el hombre mantener la relación, es cómica, pegadiza y perfectamente coreable. "Undone..." es otro temazo. No te vayas a dejar engañar por la portada y esas caras medio pícaras/nerd, aquí hay indicios de depresión y este tema lo retrata a la perfección, pues la alegoría de un suéter destrozado es evidente. "Surf Wax America" podría ser un excelente himno para todo surfista gustoso de buen rock sin dejar de lado la comicidad. "Say Ain't So" es de los puntos más álgidos del álbum, siendo este un tema sumamente personal sobre recuerdos de la infancia y lo marcante que llegan a ser como para componer un tema y ponerlo en tu álbum debut. "In The Garage" es igualmente especial por lo excéntrica que es la letra, algo introvertida, pero con un estupendo gancho. "Holiday" me parece un poco el relleno, tal vez el tema menos interesante, el tema en el que se esforzaron menos. Los coros y la progresión de acordes me parecen no tienen gancho, y la letra tampoco creo que trascienda más allá de un feriado y nada más. Algo diferente pasa con el tema final: "Only In Dreams". Ufff, la línea de bajo, la interpretación tanto vocal como musical cierran de manera excelente el álbum. Pocas canciones transmiten así la melancólica ilusión de un romance y la espera por que este se realice. Un debut sólido, pegadizo e innovador para el '94, usando las guitarras grunge con melodías pop, pegadizas, y letras cómicamente excéntricas. Rating: 9.5/10.

The debut album of Weezer called Blue album based on background color of the artwork, is a good album. Not necessary my style but I liked "Buddy Holly" when I saw it was played in an episode of Happy Days. It is definitely a catchy song, the best of this album.I also like songs "My Name Is Jonas", "Undone - The Sweater Song", "Say It Ain't So", and "In the Garage". "Only in Dreams" is a surprisingly good although it is the longest song of the album, about 8 minutes."The World Has Turned Me and Left Me Here" is another emotional song and I think it is often underrated.This is a rock album which is fun to listen to once in a while.

Perhaps Kurt Cobain's suicide a month earlier overshadowed the first release by Weezer; their blue eponymous album just appeared in my five disc stereo & stayed there for a few years. Their 'Buddy Holly' video seemed as old & rerun as the Happy Days shows Spike Jonze cleverly interpolated with the band hamming it up in Al's. Despite the success of this video, it caused Weezer to retreat for a few years for fear of being typecast as a gimmick band. However, it also captured the essence of main songwriter Rivers Cuomo & his crew; they were clean cut kids with a geeky sense of humour, but with white middle-class woes.Their grunged up interpretations of 50s rock, just like Buddy Holly, dreamt about that girl too promiscuous to notice them, never mind settle down with a bunch of geeks who spent their time jamming out old tunes in their parent's garage. Despite allusions to Kiss, posturing rock stars Weezer were not. They were more the kind to moan about a metaphorical woolly jumper or be lost in the realms of daytime TV. They were normal non-alpha males, trying to seem cool & relevant but restricted by their own awkwardness & shyness in the spotlight.After the first spin, most of the album sounds like formulaic grungy rhythms & distortion, separated by slower numbers 'Undone - the Sweater Song', 'Say it ain't so' and the rather epic closer 'Only in Dreams'. On closer listens to the lyrics, each song soon opens up the everyman awkwardness which seeps through the 'Blue Album'; making it relatable as well as honest. For example, rocking out 'In the Garage' seems the safest place to be, & 'Holiday', with its doo-wop style breakdown, are just fine, short escapes from the churn of a monochrome life dominated by alphas.Sure, the walls of distortion were nothing new or exciting, but Weezer weren't trying to be Nirvana Mk 2 (Bush, Silverchair, Everclear & later on, Puddle of Mudd tried, & largely failed to rip Nirvana off for an entire career); they were just quirky, geeky guys putting out a record whilst Cuomo focused on his studies. Perhaps that reflective, self-awareness echoes best in simple lyrics with a simple musical background, which is why Weezer 'Blue' works.They never were an overstated type of band in the 90s; preferring to stay on the edges of popularity than turn into mainstream stars like Green Day (which Weezer have arguably tried to do since the turn of the millennium, with some interesting choices in song direction, *cough* 'Can't Stop Partying'). This & 'Pinkerton' defined the start of the geek generation, & Cuomo's introspective lyrics became a foundation for emotional bands to air their worldly - often trivial - woes. Post-millennial Weezer would never be as charming as their early work, which is why the 'Blue Album' often features in many people's favourite album lists, but few go beyond 'Pinkerton' for further appreciation of the band. After gloomy Grunge, it was nice to listen to music designed to make you smile again.

Although Weezer has never really been my favorite band due to their "nerdy" image, I really can't find anything wrong about this album, which has not a single bad song on it (not even the harmonica-driven "Garage Song", where it's pronounced "grage", although it is one of the album's low points). Sure, there may have been better bands on the scene when this album came out, but if pure, unabashed geek rock is your thing, then this album is just right for you.Best Tracks: 1. My Name Is Jonas2. Buddy Holly3. Say It Ain't So4. Only In Dreams5. The World Has Turned And Left Me HereWorst Tracks: 1. Surf Wax America (this song is more than a little cheesy in my opinion)2. Garage Song (while this isn't necessarily a bad song, it's still a little annoying).
