  1. 7.5 |   Consequence Of Sound

    It’s like live band karaoke, and everyone is invited, which is all this really boils down to at the end of the day. They’re not reinventing the wheel; they’re using it

  2. 6.5 |   Punk News

    It looks like Weezer is saving the industry and making rock and roll great again, not by building walls, but by breaking 'em down (7/10) This is a pretty good covers album! (6/10)

  8. 2.0 |   NOW

    The Teal Album makes Aerosmith’s blues album Honkin’ On Bobo sound like Straight Outta Compton

  9. 1.8 |   Earbuddy

    It is a black hole of entertainment, swallowing all joy and hate and everything in between for its excruciating thirty-six minutes
