VÖ-Datum30.10.2009

Nun also flirtet die nette Band mit der Radikalität. Allerdings ist die extremistische oder eben radikale Attitüde, auf welche der Titel Raditude verweist, kaum für irgendwelche klanglichen Exzesse verantwortlich oder auf lyrische Gemeinheiten zurückzuführen. Vielmehr ist Weezer nun noch viel stärker und kompromissloser als zuvor dem verträglichen Popsound zugewandt – I Don´t Want To Let You Go ist wohl das treffende Beispiel. Die schmeichlerischen, vereinnahmenden Melodien waren schon immer da und eingängiger als die Gitarre oder Stimme von Rivers Cuomo lassen sich diese kaum vortragen. Auch von irgendwelchen Königinnen oder Königen der Popularmusik nicht. Trotzdem musste, bis zuletzt, immer die dicke Gitarre bratzen und britzeln oder der sanft rückwärts gerichtete Bandklang dazugehören. Davon verabschiedet sich Weezer nun, mit ureigenster Raditude.

Die Gruppe um den Vorzeige-Nerd des spätestens mit Nirvana dramatisch über-populär gewordenen Indie-Rocks, besinnt sich somit auf angestammte Qualitäten. Das Betören steht im Mittelpunkt, das schmachtende und auch das leidende Liebeslied. Wobei dies selbstverständlich in der Hauptsache ebenfalls bedeutet, dass die Metalhead-Phase Weezers so gut als beendet sein dürfte. Ferner aber sind auch diverse Details einiger Songs ganz anders gestaltet worden als zuvor. In ihrem Erscheinungsklangbild tauchen Ereignisse auf, welche bisher keine Rolle spielten. Besonders auffällig ist Love Is The Answer, dem Titel nach ein Reggae-Stück, welches aber ausgiebig indische Elemente mit sich führt. Ebenfalls neu: Sprechgesang, vorgetragen von einem Menschen außerhalb der Band. Rapper Lil Wayne übernimmt eine Strophe des Songs Can´t Stop Partying. Doch auch der Elektroclash findet bei Weezer einen fröhlichen Widerhall. Es blubbert, zirpt, orgelt und tschirpt das Synth-Spiel hier und da. Der Non-Stop-Party-Track vertraut zudem auf eine komplette Neo-Achtziger-Verpackung.

Außerdem hat Cuomo für Raditude Co-Songwriter akzeptiert und eines der auf Rockriffing basierenden Lieder, In The Mall, komponierte in der Tat Patrick Wilson. Allein sogar, ohne Cuomo. Das Album nimmt dadurch keinen Schaden, ganz im Gegenteil. Die Öffnung scheint vielmehr das Schaffen weniger kompliziert gestaltet zu haben. Eigentlich jubelt jedes Lied, möchte Single sein, gesondert und besonders intensiv wahrgenommen werden. Auf seine eigene Art, in seiner kuschelig eingerichteten Nische dieser ansonsten kalten und gefährlichen Welt.

Diese Vielzahl an Veränderungen nimmt allerdings, streng genommen, weniger Einfluss auf das Songwriting als dieser Text annehmen lassen kann. Denn den nahezu perfekten Popsong im Rockgewand, den haben Weezers Hymnen bereits mit dem Debütalbum hinlänglich als Bandbesonderheit etabliert und einen bis heute geltenden Ausnahmestatus beschert. Nun ist die Band, der Stimmung nach, näher am ersten Album als zuletzt. Melancholie und Nostalgie sind bestimmend, die Perspektive jedes Songs flirtet mit den Fünfzigern und Sechzigern, mit Naivität und Unbedarftheit, mit imaginiert unberschwertem Teenager-Dasein, welches allein in Emotionalität und Hormonwirrungen intensive Erfahrungen zu machen braucht. Kummer bringt Nahtoderfahrungen, ein Lächeln rettet Leben, ein Kuss stürzt in Depressionen oder bringt eben ungeahnte Hochgefühle.

Die ewige Adoleszenz, dafür steht auch Raditude. Das bedrohliche Unglück lugt zwar durch die Fugen dieser grandios produzierten, glanzvollen Dreiminutenstücke. Noch ist selbst der Alltag ein Abenteuer, denn mit Weezer bleiben wir ewig jung, pfeifen hochmelodisch auf jegliche Verantwortung und selbst erdrückende Tristesse ist noch weit entfernt.
