ALBUM REVIEW: Weezer's "Hurley"
P.S. Yes, that is Hurley a.k.a. Jorge Garcia from "Lost" on the cover of their album. Lead singer Rivers Cuomo liked the photo so much, he decided to make it the cover. That was either the best marketing scheme ever used or the nerdiest "Lost"-fan act ever recorded.
The best line on this track is "When we first met / in the lunch room / my ocular nerve / went pop! zoom!" Now THAT's a compliment!
It's just fun to scream/chant along to at a concert.
This one has fun lyrics with pop culture references.
I like the vengeful chorus and the mid-way rock-out at 2:05:
