Weezer (also known as the Green Album) is the third studio album by American rock band Weezer, released on May 15, 2001 by Geffen Records. Produced by Ric Ocasek, it was the only album to feature bassist Mikey Welsh, who replaced Matt Sharp. After the disappointing reception for their second album, Pinkerton (1996), Weezer went on hiatus and the band members worked on side projects. During this time, their fanbase grew online and Pinkerton's standing improved

The new self-titled Weezer album, as it turns out, is average from beginning to end. There are maybe one or two decent melodies out of the ten songs here, and the only change in tone comes with "Island in the Sun," the album's only truly enjoyable song and its catchiest hook. It's the first and only moment of even moderate pleasure in the record's brief yet far too long 28-minute length. But even with this singular change in volume and mood, Weezer lacks the sense of dynamics and intricacy that Pinkerton- and especially their debut- held in spades. But The Green Album doesn't generally sound like the canned, artificial angst of "Hash Pipe"; it has a sunny disposition, with songs like "O Girlfriend" and "Glorious Da. An actual line from the song "Smile," for instance: "Open up your heart and let the good stuff come ou. It's unoriginal, moronic and tacky, and that's all there is to it.
There's a reason why Weezer's third album consciously recalls the band's first, not just in its eponymous title, but in its stark cover, Ric Ocasek production, and tight pop songs. That's not because Weezer was trying to recapture its core audience, because, unbeknown to the band, it already had. Once its second album, Pinkerton, stiffed on the charts and was lambasted in the press (including an devastatingly unfair pan from Rolling Stone, who named it the worst album of 1996), the group dropped out of sight and leader Rivers Cuomo went into seclusion.
Weezer, also known as "The Green Album", was released May 15, 2001, nearly five years after Pinkerton. It is considered Weezer's first "post-Pinkerton" album, as well as their comeback album. It is notable for its short, poppy, and punchy sound. By August 18, 2000, Weezer was having meetings with various producers, learning and rehearsing new songs in their new garage, and ironing out all plans regarding recording a new album.
