    No, they're way above average, although inconsistent. Not one of my favourite bands but done some fantastic stuff. If only there was more of it...

    when you say inconsistent you mean they have some very good stuff but they also have some poor stuff?

    making them average

    No. Two Incubuses/Incubi in the world would just be tragic.

    Blue Album released in 1994.
    Pinkerton 2 years later.
    Took a whole 5 years after that before the Green Album, and although Maladroit followed only a year later, it was a bit crap. So yes, they are both inconsistent and lazy when it comes to recording.

    buddy holly is an amazing song, but the sweater song beats everything in it's path.

    the reason they took 5 years for the green album was so rivers could go and get a degree.

    and i love maladroit! i think that's their best album! plus they put on a good live show.

    I got into Weezer in a big way about 2 years ago. I remember seeing the Buddy Holly video on the Windows 95 CD for the first time in 1996 - LOL I wonder how many Weezer fans that disk is responsible for! Anyway, love their sound, love their image (Rivers Cuomo wasn't bad looking back then either ) and I've got Maladroit. A lot of fans seem to go on about The Sweater Song but personally I like Dope Nose and Keep Fishin' best out of all their songs. I'm getting a little fed up of waiting for the next album though - I would have bought it straightaway some months ago, but now I'm currently obsessed with Queen it's further down my list!

    Okay, seen as Eric Martin has recommended them (as well as Gavin DeGraw, if anyone's interested, Chariot is supposed to be good) - I shall listen!
