  1. 9.0 |   All Music

    The album feels like a departure: with its soft orchestral balm and sweet melancholic undertow, OK Human offers a singular, complete listening experience unlike anything else in their catalog

  2. 9.0 |   musicOMH

    Weezer have made one of their most catchy and insightful records to date

  3. 8.4 |   Sputnik Music (staff)

    OK Human is an oddity and a warm digital hug; it's Weezer reacting to an endless, nerve-shredding, social-life-destroying period of isolation the way only Weezer can, drawing further inwards to themselves but somehow inviting us along for the ride.

  4. 8.0 |   Northern Transmissions

    It not only documents a significant period for humanity but also shows how positive a creative outlet can be when the world is falling apart around you

  5. 8.0 |   PopMatters

    Fresh out of gimmicks, Weezer think outside the box and deliver their most sincere album in years with OK Human

  6. 8.0 |   Upset

    Their strongest offering since 2016’s ‘White Album’

  7. 8.0 |   Mojo

    It's Numbers that punches hardest, it's compassionate message about the futility of measuring ourselves against others deftly handled. Print edition only

  8. 8.0 |   Clash

    What a lovely surprise from a band who are becoming increasingly more marmite as they near their third decade as a band. If they can keep this up with ‘Van Weezer’, they may just manage to keep the wolves from their door

  9. 8.0 |   Kerrang!

    The best part is, when the time is right and we go back to stadiums again, they’ve still got what promises to be the perfect album to celebrate with left in the chamber

  10. 8.0 |   Exclaim

    With 12 tracks and a runtime of barely more than half an hour, any flaws are minor and the album breezes by

  11. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    It’s in the slower, more balladry-driven songs that OK Human (the latest in a long line of stupid reference-heavy album titles, this time nodding at Radiohead’s classic) finds its openly beating heart

  12. 7.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Loud guitars are out, schmaltzy strings are in on the group’s 14th album, which frontman Rivers Cuomo & Co. finished in lockdown

  13. 7.0 |   Paste Magazine

    Nearly 25 years after their landmark album Pinkerton, the band makes a surprising and effective orchestral pivot

  14. 7.0 |   Under The Radar

    The record isn’t groundbreaking material, but it’s definitely nice to have a new Weezer album that isn’t trying to recreate their old material and instead looks to the future of their sound

  15. 6.7 |   Consequence Of Sound

    Possibly the band's most personal effort since Pinkerton and certainly their most relatable

  16. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Fourteen albums in and Weezer are still daring, but to a mixed result
    Read Review

  17. 6.0 |   NME

    The guitar heroes have – gulp – ditched the guitars for a bold new direction. The result is an evocative, intimate record that'll make you pine for the old world

  18. 6.0 |   Vinyl Chapters

    OK Human is Weezer’s saddest record since Pinkerton
    Read Review

  19. 5.8 |   Pitchfork

    Rivers Cuomo pays tribute to his hermit orchestral-pop heroes, name-checking Harry Nilsson, Serge Gainsbourg, and Pet Sounds. But of course, it's all Weezer in the end

  20. 5.0 |   No Ripcord

    Weezer’s maddeningly inane lyrics sometimes work, but they aren’t doing much to move the needle here. At least the album sounds nice, as that’s more than you could say for plenty of previous albums from Cuomo and the gang. We might as well enjoy it
