Weezer Hurley

Weezer <i>Hurley</i>
Over the past few weeks, we've all experienced the barrage of hype leading up to Weezer's eighth album, Hurley: first there was the news that they had signed to an indie label, Epitaph, which was followed by a ridiculous album cover and allegations of a cross-promotional deal with Hurley clothing.

Now, finally, we have the album. Although it isn't coming out until next week (September 14), you can hear the whole thing over at Weezer's MySpace. Is it a return to form or just another in a string of often-maligned albums from the once-great powerpop band? Judge for yourself right here.
