It might seem impossible, but this album is actually somewhat solid.

Hurley is the eighth studio album by American rock band Weezer, released on September 10, 2010 by Epitaph Records. The album was produced by Rivers Cuomo and Shawn Everett, and, similar to their previous album Raditude, features songs co-written with songwriters outside of the band. Preceded by the single "Memories", Hurley debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200, with over 45,000 units sold in its first week of sales.
Hurley debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 with 45,000 units sold, making it Weezer's sixth top 10 album, as well as the band's sixth top 10 album in a row. Despite peaking higher than Raditude, Hurley sold 21,000 fewer units in its first week than the former Track listing.
Make Believe, The Red Album, and Raditude made it seem like the mid-nineties glory days of Weezer were a thing of the past. Rivers Cuomo had eschewed everything that made millions of kids fall in love him in the first place for one dimensional, piss poor party anthems and awkward hymns of teenage baggage – really the last thing that was expected from the socially awkward, middle aged Harvard alumnus. Hurley proves that Rivers still has some gas left in the tank. At the same time it was announced that Weezer were jumping ship from the major label home that they had been residing at since their.
We’ve put Hurley in here simply because we had to include it somewhere. It is a studio album bearing the name of Weezer on it, after all. But let’s put it like this – when this album turns 10 years old in 2020, literally no-one will be calling for a live tour of the band playing it in full. Thankfully it’s been so long ago now that we’ve forgotten almost all of the songs, so at least there’s that. 8. Weezer ‘Red’ (2008). Alright, this is where things start to get interesting. Fair’s fair, this album is a bit of a car crash and has the feel of Rivers Cuomo going through something of a midlife crisis. The cowboy dad vibes of the cover are just the start, but there are a handful of huge tunes on here, and as such, this one gets a sort-of thumbs up.
This was Weezer's first release since their split from Geffen, which took place after the release of Raditude in late 2009. In an article announcing the album details, Rolling Stone magazine said the album "may be named after the LOST character"
Hurley Studios, Costa Mesa, CA. Red Bull Studios, Santa Monica, CA. The Banff Centre, Luscar Studios, Banff, Alberta, Canada. Hurley - named after Jorge Garcia’s beloved Lost character for no particular reason, but anybody with three eponymous albums in an eight-LP career doesn’t care much for titles in the first place - is marginally louder and rougher than the clean sheen of Raditude, but not enough to fool anybody into thinking this is a punk rebirth.
When Hurley works, it's because Cuomo is a master of form. Even if you're not going to be the one singing along, it's easy to imagine "Ruling Me" offering some sort of platonic radio-rock pleasure, while "Hang On" positions itself as the one where the kids will be waving their iPhones in the air. But when the two instincts clash on "Trainwrecks", you hear a perfectly anthemic chorus get lost in a confused verse where Cuomo doesn't put in enough effort to indicate whether it's a riff on hipsters or on himself
