Words such as "goofy" and "geeky" have long been used to describe Weezer's music, but these qualities are only one aspect of the band's sound; beneath all the humorous pop culture references and snarky attitude, Rivers Cuomo touched upon a myriad of serious topics including existential angst, aging, and sexual mores. While at first listen RADITUDE seems to be one of the Weezer's silliest albums (song titles include "The Girl Hot Hot" and "In the Mall"), there is, as usual, more than meets the ear. Even on the paean to debauchery "Can't Stop Partying" (the lyrics of which were written by rapper Jermaine Dupri), there is a certain undercurrent of melancholy, suggesting that the song may be simultaneously a celebration and a cry for help. "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To," for all its teen-pop bounce and smirking descriptions of a burgeoning romance, is a surprisingly sweet, honest, and distinctly adult look at the natural arc of a relationship. Perhaps more then ever before, RADITUDE revealed that Weezer can be appreciated on several levels.
