Heralds of alt-rock, the Californians Weezer keep churning out albums one after the other as if it was no bother at all. This is their fourteenth album: a sign of rare vitality for members of this scene. Under the leadership of their frontman, songwriter and lead singer Rivers Cuomo, the group still affects the same nervousness crossed with a certain melancholy. They endure thanks to an extraordinary ability to adapt to a perpetually-changing environment. They have moved onto YouTube and are cracking the codes of new networks in a way that few groups of the same genre have managed to do. Weezer, with an unfailingly creative approach to their music videos, are still there - and so are their fans. With the offbeat and retro aesthetic which they have cultivated since their debut in 1994, which was produced by the great Ric Ocasek (leader of Cars), it was an easy choice for Weezer to make an album of covers of powerful eighties songs: 2019's Teal Album. With a cover of A-Ha's Take On Me garnering more than 23 million views on YouTube... Another post-modern hobby of Cuomo's is making concept albums with the help of an orchestra. Inspired by a 1970 album by Harry Nilsson featuring songs by Randy Newman (Nilsson Sings Newman) as well as The Beach Boys' 1966 landmark Pet Sounds, Weezer are in gala attire here, accompanied by an army of thirty-eight musicians. Piano, violins, cellos, flutes... From the first piece, All My Favorite Songs, the stage is set, Rivers Cuomo is enjoying himself and cheerfully pastiching the Beatles and McCartney's Wings (the strings were recorded at Abbey Road Studios). This is a powerful influence on Playing My Piano and its syrupy vocal flights. OK Human shows a new facet of Rivers Cuomo's immense talent, leaving behind his saturated guitars for a classic pop sound that is a little unctuous: but the writer's irony is never lost from sight. The irony is even in the title of the record, OK Human, a nod to Radiohead's OK Computer (1997). Another familiar feature: the CD's playtime is 30 minutes. OK Human is a pleasant interlude before a return to the rock and guitars of the next album, Van Weezer, a tribute to Van Halen, which is set to arrive just a few weeks after this release... © Yan Céh / Qobuz

Hi-Res
To complete Weezer’s discography, which began when Grunge was slowly declining, frontman Rivers Cuomo chose the color black. After the release in early January 2019 of the Teal Album, which was ten covers chosen over the span of 40 years of music history and ranging from Happy Together by the Turtles to No Scrubs by TLC, one could wonder if Cuomo was claiming his rights to enter the pantheon of smash hits. If the record is a little far from Island in the Sun's powerful presence, this album is full of Weezer’s signature bubblegum pop. It’s true that the band’s experiments with Pro Tools and a more mainstream bent on Pacific Dream (2017) left some fans on the side of the road. On The Black Album they returned with a lighter pop sound, well produced, and less pompous. While Weezer is still staying true to working on its formula and even if we are confronted by the layered choruses of Piece of Cake, the obscure lyrics of Can't Knock the Hustle or the cute melodies of I'm Just Being Honest, the albums still works incredibly well. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
