Rivers Runs Dry

Weezer's sullen front man trades good songwriting for meditation. Such a pity, indeed.

Weezer's Make Believe was supposed to cheer up the band's longtime emo fans after the disappointment of Green and Maladroit. Keep crying, kids.

In the end, the disappointment shouldn't be a surprise. Make Believe proves good music was what made Cuomo so unhappy in the first place. His greatest songs were his most conflicted efforts, and he was championed for witty, convoluted takes on nerdiness and young love. Now, post-Rubin and post-meditation, Cuomo is his own champion. He has sacrificed his best musical days to achieve inner peace. Still, if inner peace sounds anything like "Beverly Hills," Weezer fans should swear off meditation--for life.
