Weezer - Maladroit
Maladroit brings a whole lot of different things to the table. This is where Weezer started playing with textures and song structures they had never touched before. Rivers let his inner metal fan out, and really went for shredtastic solos that sound completely different from The Green Album's simple riffs. Oddities like "Burndt Jamb" and "Death and Destruction" made the cut, which baffled some of the Weezer faithful. Over the years I have come to enjoy Maladroit in spite of its somewhat disjointed presentation. There are a lot of great songs on this album and it certainly deserves more respect than it has gotten thus far.
