Weezer - Pacific Daydream
Weezer release their eleventh album,åÊPacific DaydreamåÊon Crush Music / Atlantic Records. Produced by Butch Walker,åÊPacific DaydreamåÊis the follow up to the critically acclaimed albumåÊWeezer (The White Album), which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album at the end of last year. Following the release ofåÊWeezer (The White Album), the band began working on what they called ‰ÛÏThe Black Album,‰ but as they worked, they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world. Instead of forcing a different direction, they began an entirely new album;åÊPacific DaydreamåÊwas born.åÊPacific DaydreamåÊ- an album full of the melodic mastery and craftsmanship for which Weezer are known - is a record that navigates the uncertainty between reality and dreams, blurring the line between the listener knowing if they are daydreaming the world of the album, or if the world of the album is daydreaming them. It‰۪s a record about finding the gray area between the black and the white, about escaping the everyday into the fantasy of what may be just down the line, but also maybe isn‰۪t. It‰۪s an album that sounds like the Beach Boys and The Clash fell in love by the ocean and had one hell of an amazing baby. It‰۪s Weezer doing all the things they do best and then some.
