It was four years since Weezer released a new album. Between Hurley and Everything Will Be Alright In The End, the band appeared on a couple soundtracks but nothing close to a full length album. If “Back To The Shack” was a promise of a return to form for Weezer, then Da Vinci makes good on that promise. What made albums like Blue Album and Pinkerton so good were the simple chord progressions combined with lyrics of love, loss and angst.
It takes a nerdy, intellectual mind, the likes of Rivers Cuomo, to pull off the references he makes in songs. There aren’t many bands out there that can reference Da Vinci, Stephen Hawking and Rosetta Stone. It is really great to see Weezer return to form, and return to writing simplistic heartfelt rock songs. “Da Vinci” is a great example of this off of Everything Will Be Alright In The End.
