    Weezer rocks The Red Album

    Since the early ’90s, Weezer has been making simplicity rock. Catchy guitar riffs and lyrics made for humming drove the Los Angeles group to the top of alternative music.

    Now, maturity is on display with their newest release, known as “”The Red Album.””

    Longer songs with vocal emphasis and style variations take listeners on a rollercoaster of creativity, something new for a band that has made a living from basic pop melodies.

    Frontman Rivers Cuomo even belts falsetto for the track, “”The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn).””

    Weezer risks alienating loyal fans by meandering from a familiar style, but the result is a dynamic display of talent.
