UK Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    After a decade of albums that tested the faith of the faithful, along comes Hurley, which sounds exactly as a Weezer record should: all crunchy riffs and “humorous” lyrics

    It's got the spark and charm of the Weezer of old

  4. 7.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    On the whole, Hurley isn’t the catastrophe people probably expected. It’s pretty enjoyable

  5. 7.0 |   Spin

    The band's aims are more modest now: have fun, get people to sing along, share a common feeling or two

  6. 7.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    A fun romp that proves that there is life in the old dog yet
    Read Review

  7. 7.0 |   Blurt

    Hurley isn't perfect ("Where's My Sex"), but it's a cool rummage through an old closet where Weezer happened to find a few things they've never quite tried on

    Weezer’s best release in years
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Recalling the drolly self-deprecating power-pop of their earliest albums
    Read Review

  12. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Print edition only

  13. 6.0 |   No Ripcord

    Hurley sums up like a consumer guide of all the musical directions Weezer has explored throughout the years

  14. 6.0 |   PopMatters

    Recorded quickly, the album finds Cuomo mellowed considerably
    Read Review

  15. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Hurley is their most "corporate" record ever
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   BBC

    Describing a Weezer album as disappointing is a bit like watching an Olympic medal winner smoke crack: a sad reminder that everyone is fallible, no matter how talented they are
    Read Review

  17. 5.0 |   Under The Radar

    Even at their best, Weezer too often come off now as self-parody
    Read Review

    At this steady rate of basically listenable and huge-selling albums, Weezer’s a sure bet for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019

    Weezer seem to get worse with each album they release
    Read Review

  20. 4.0 |   The Skinny

    Naming the album after Hugo "Hurley" Reyes only magnifies the fact that Weezer have gotten a little lost in the new millennium

  21. 4.0 |   The Guardian

    Rivers Cuomo, seems to have lost the sure touch he once had
