The fifth album from nerd-pop rockers Weezer found them returning to the grooves that made them a fraternity household name more than a decade ago.

Make Believe, with its heavy dose of crunchy power chords and isolation-laden lyrics, will put a smile on the face of any “Sweater Song” enthusiast. It took a few years for Make Believe to reach completion, due in part to inner-band psycho-struggles and frontman River Cuomo’s on-again/off-again stints as a Harvard student, but the band sounds genuinely excited to be making music once again, and this album helped them get their groove back on.

Former Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant released Mighty Rearranger, his first album of original material in more than 12 years.

Zeppelin fans will recognize hints of “Kashmir”-era grooves in Plant’s new record, which melds African-styled beats with wailing blues guitars. Plant was supported on Rearranger by his new backing group, The Strange Sensations, with whom he also recorded 2002’s Dreamland, a collection of cover tunes.

Rearranger’s first single, “Shine It All Around,” is still playing on the radio, it's that good.
