I Wanna Get BetterThe band fun. conquered the charts in 2012 and 2013 with Some Nights, an energetic blast of a pop-rock record that featured hugely successful singles like the title track and the ubiquitous "We Are Young." At their best, the band incites a sugar-rush spark in the listener: they can make you feel insanely happy just to be alive. Lead guitarist Jack Antonoff inspired some of the record's best such moments with joyous, skidding guitar solos, and he's now striking out on his own with a new project, Bleachers; their first single is "I Wanna Get Better."
The song contains some of the same magic that's led fun. to success - a giddiness that's an inch or two away from the edge of control, an open-armed embrace of huge pop hooks - with a new voice at the helm, Antonoff's deeper, dry vocals having replaced Nate Ruess' soaring takes. "I Wanna Get Better" is a great first effort; it's exciting to imagine what else Antonoff has up his sleeve.1. I Wanna Get Better

Weezer's Most Balanced, Ambitious, and Diverse Record
Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Rick Rubin's Sleek, Layered Production Now Reveals More Details and Subtle Cues
Following four acclaimed albums filled with power-pop, Weezer swings for the fences on Make Believe. Expanding its ambitions, arrangements, and diversity, and helmed by mega-producer Rick Rubin, the 2005 record ranks as the band's most diverse and balanced effort. It's also the group's longest set distinguished by more personal lyrics inspired by leader Rivers Cuomo's meditation sessions. Anchored by four radio-charting singles, and streaked with cautious optimism, Make Believe remains a compelling intersection of sleek, new wave and big, meaty arena-rock bluster.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180 gram LP at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's reissue affirms Make Believe as the best-sounding record of Weezer's career by allowing Rubin's finessed sonics to showcase the instrumentation and subtle cues embedded in the layers of production. Previously buried or obscured, strings and pianos give extra body and shape to certain songs, while the quartet-buttressed by the brawnier, richer studio techniques-comes across as bigger than ever before. Drums, in particular, strongly benefit from Rubin's experience and ear.
Opening with "Beverly Hills," a chant-a-long anthem that immediately hypnotizing the senses with bleacher-stomping momentum and dorky talk-box solo, Make Believe takes amusing aim at haute-couture culture and fickle materialism here and on the farcical "We Are All On Drugs," each song informed by Cuomo's observations while living in California. Silly, witty, quirky-it's requisite Weezer, and uses a sense of humor to counteract the more serious sides of the album.
As he did on Pinkerton, Cuomo revisits intimate feelings and fears of loneliness, drawing from his break-up with his girlfriend to themes of forgiveness. Make Believe represents both a musical and emotional evolution, wherein Weezer embraces different styles (new wave, harder-edged rock, irony-free ballads) and hints at sincere hopefulness. Two of the effort's biggest singles ("This Is Such a Pity," "Perfect Situation") breathe with an endearing sympathy that steers clear of cynicism or sarcasm. Where the quartet previously opted for self-flagellation when it came to romance, songs here indicate Cuomo and Co. content to move on and let go.
Similarly, Cuomo wrote the nerves-exposed "The Other Way" for his ex-girlfriend after her boyfriend passed away. Undercurrents of self-analysis, apology, and resolution run throughout the material and affirm a maturation that nevertheless avoids sacrificing Weezer's hallmark hooks and melodies. As Rolling Stone writer Rob Sheffield noted in his review of Make Believe, "Not since Brian Wilson has an L.A.-pop mastermind gotten such musical mileage out of wanting to be an ordinary guy, not realizing that his psychosexual freakitude is exactly what makes him one."
