** A lot of The Red Abum can be described this way. See "Troublemaker," "Everybody Get Dangerous," and "Cold Dark World."

They suffer from a really badly BrokenBase. While all of their fans can agree that ''The Blue Album'' and ''Pinkerton'' are really good, some fans will argue that ''Make Believe'' and ''The Red Album'' were their best works while '90s purists consider them either average or horrible. ''The Green Album'' and ''Maladroit'' tend to be spared from these debates and instead disappear into obscurity. The point where many people agree on is that their "mainstream" albums are LoveItOrHateIt, but B-sides tend to be interesting.

In October of 2014 they released ''Everything Will Be Alright in the End'', [[EarnYourHappyEnding which is their first release since]] ''Pinkerton'' to have been received almost entirely positively by the fanbase.

On April 1st, 2016, they released ''Weezer ([[RunningGag The White Album]])'', [[HesBack another widely well received work]] that is being considered by some fans as the best Weezer album since ''Maladroit'' [[HolyShitQuotient or even since]] '''''[[ToughActToFollow Pinkerton.]]''''' (and not to be confused with that other ''Music/{{The White Album}}'')

*RearrangeTheSong: "Weekend Woman" from ''Pacific Daydream'' is a drastically reworked version of "Burning Sun", a ''Green Album' outtake that leaked long beforehand.
** "Thought I Knew", Brian Bell's StepUpToTheMicrophone song on ''The Red Album'', was originally a song by his side project The Relationship. The Weezer version changed it from a minor key to a major one because the band felt it fit the feel of the album better that way.

** The same song also addressed fan criticism of then-recent concerts: From 2009-2012 they started bringing a second drummer, Josh Freese, on tour, so that on certain songs Patrick Wilson could play lead guitar or keys and Rivers could put his guitar down and roam the stage freely while singing. Fans seemed to prefer seeing the members stick to their usual instruments, hence the lyric "Maybe I should play lead guitar and Pat should play the drums".

** "In the Garage" has "I've got Peter Criss" misheard as "I've got me a dress".

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally in the 4 to 5 range. ''Pinkerton'', however, is mostly a solid 6 (with "Butterfly" being a 1). "Get Me Some", "Everyone" and several songs from ''Maladroit'' also reach a 6.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: 'Back to the Shack' directly addresses the criticisms lobbed at the last several albums before it and assures the listeners who ''hate'' those albums to any extent that it's going to get better with their writing and production. It did.
