Weezer’s “Hurley” delivers better than it sounds

Despite the CD cover art, “Hurley” does not contain anything to do with the television series “LOST.” The only song that could be considered similar is “Brave New World,” which sounds like a post ‘90s-era, grunge song.

“Memories” starts the album out with an orchestral beginning and then cranks up the electric guitar. It’s a good song about what most UAA students remember from the golden days of high school, playing hacky sack and listening to Audioslave.

The core track, “Where’s My Sex?” could easily be the most comical song on the album. It starts out with cavemen, to the refrain: “Where’s My Sex?/ I thought it was here.”

“Smart Girls” points out that girls that have intelligence are coming out of the woodwork, and the narrator just can’t get enough of them.

Mostly, “Hurley” brings back the staple of classic rock topics: girls. It’s a really interesting take on the topic, but for the most part, the album just entertains.

Gems like “Where’s My Sex?” and “Memories” set it apart, but the album as a whole is just a fun romp through classic rock anthems in the “Weezer” style.
