Given the schizophrenic character of the Red Album, I can definitely understand why this album is heaped with both golden praise and vicious scorn, but I think neither are particularly deserved. From a Weezer perspective, this is a very weird album full of both hits and misses. Unlike their previous albums there is no overarching feel to the record. Let's face it, you can tell a Pinkerton song or Green Album song just by the sound of it, and the same goes for every other Weezer disc. Whether you like them or not, each Weezer album was very self-contained; this album is all over the place.
