What Critics Said About Weezer's Blue Album Back in 1994

FUSE TV - What Critics Said About Weezer's Blue Album Back in 1994

Twenty years ago, on May 10, 1994, a bunch of sweater-donning dweebs got together and released their self-titled debut album. Weezer—affectionately dubbed The Blue Album for its cover—introduced the world to power chord pop punk and teen earnestness, effectively making uncool look really effin' cool. But like all marvelous things, the album was polarizing. Were these dorky kids serious? Here's what some of the top music publications had to say about the young band back in 1994.
