10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Memorable characters loom large in our favourite Weezer songs—guys in Buddy Holly glasses and lovelorn losers—but the group's tenth studio album is filled with the colourful mess of people from the West L.A. beach scene. We meet a pack of heroic slackers in “California Kids,” fall in love with a girl from the cannoli shop in “Thank God for the Girls,” and float past tambourine-playing Krishnas in the sugar-sweet hook of "(Girl We Got A) Good Thing.” And while most of the White Album’s portraits are painted with overdriven guitars and Beach Boys-inspired “oohs,” none is more cathartic than album’s closer, “Endless Bummer,” which begins as an acoustic beach-fire sing-along and ends with a blistering solo.
