WEEZER – Make Believe

Weezer, Make Believe

Weezer, Make BelieveThe fifth album from nerd-pop rockers Weezer found them returning to the grooves that made them a fraternity household name more than a decade ago.

Make Believe, with its heavy dose of crunchy power chords and isolation-laden lyrics, will put a smile on the face of any “Sweater Song” enthusiast. It took a few years for Make Believe to reach completion, due in part to inner-band psycho-struggles and frontman River Cuomo’s on-again/off-again stints as a Harvard student, but the band sounds genuinely excited to be making music once again, and this album helped them get their groove back on.
