Vinyl LP Contains "Can't Knock the Hustle" and "Zombie Bastards"!

Produced by TV On the Radio's Dave Sitek, The Black Album is the first-ever Weezer album written entirely on piano by Rivers Cuomo. The Black Album is meant to be in contrast to the previously released "Weezer (The White Album)"... obviously.

"Musically, their latest portends a bit of a change-up. Cuomo primarily composed The Black Album on piano, and brought in Dave Sitek of experimentally minded indie-rockers TV on the Radio to produce. But even if he primarily composed on pan flute, it'd still be what it is — another edition of their signature precise, poker-faced California pop-rock. There’s some predictably trollish tongue-in-cheek teen-angst ('Zombie Bastards'), and a glam jeremiad on the wages of stardom ('The Prince Who Wanted Everything,' which comes with allusions to the actual Prince that seem a little off for a jaunty joke song; too soon, Riv). On 'I'm Just Being Honest' the crown he wears is heavy indeed; over a guitar grind that shimmers like alt-rock radio circa 1995, Cuomo sings about living in a personal hell of his own creation, where bad thirsty musicians bug him at his gigs looking for feedback on their CDs: 'I had to quit/Your band sounds like shit,' he intones. He's a five-star dude in a one-star world; that may not be enough to earn our sympathy but on most of The Black Album he's still holding our attention." - Rolling Stone, The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far, June 2019
