Don't be confused by the title of the album, Weezer is still an alternative rock band. Despite how much frontman Rivers Cuomo dreams of being a band like Kiss. Like Kiss, the latest Weezer album has its own fair share of kitschy moments, crazy big guitar riffs and even some angry vocals, but they are counteracted by power pop-ness of other tracks. It is interesting to listen to the album as a whole because these are all leftover songs that did not make it onto other Weezer albums for some reason. To finish off this review, I cannot end this without saying that I don't even know what to say about Weezer's cover of Toni Braxton's (??) "Unbreak My Heart" as it left me speechless.
