LET GO When the NYC pop band Nada Surf first emerged with the snotty ’96 hit loser anthem "Popular," they looked like the second coming of Weezer — cute video, Ric Ocasek—produced debut album, nerd glasses, and all.
Weezer have since parlayed their taste for cheap thrills into a lucrative comeback, but Nada Surf have chosen to follow fellow alt-rock survivors the Flaming Lips and Superdrag into the less-commercial realm of highbrow art-pop.
Nada Surf might not be as fun as they used to be, but there’s plenty of beauty in their sophistication — and everyone has to grow up eventually.

Nada Surf even tip their hat to former folky great Bob Dylan on "Blonde on Blonde." "Let Go" takes the listener to blistering hights of food storage, bilingual splendor, to a run-in with a pair of LDS missionaries (and the meaning of life), and almost shapes up to be a classic in the meantime.
Let's face it...if you mention Nada Surf to someone, they are either going to bring up the song "Popular" or say "Nada who?" But you won't find a more consistently good pop album by a group with "Nada" in the name...or any group for that matter.

UNIVERSAL CITY, California — When Nada Surf hit the airwaves with "Popular" in 1996, they were a one-hit-wonder waiting to happen: the kitschy name, the silly single, the even sillier video.

This isn't so much of a review of Monday's Nada Surf/Rogue Wave/The King of France show in Tempe, Ariz., as it is a quasi-examination of a trend that Nada Surf – for better or worse – seems to somehow epitomize.
That was my first experience with Nada Surf live, and I'm really impressed at how seemingly innocuous pop songs translate into these powerful anthems on stage.

With few exceptions, this album sloshes through with pretty mechanical inclanations..Nada Surf were obviously just starting out, and by no means is it a bad debut rock alternative album, but it is definitly the wrong place to start, hardly hinting at their greatness to come..
i'm a huge weezer fan too, and though they are similar to weezer in some ways, such as making catchy pop-rock and quirky lyrics, nada surf has NO interest whatsoever in being weezer, and prove it even more with their follow-up to this, the proximity effect.
Nada Surf is more reminiscient of Nirvana(although still very different overall) in that way because the songs dont really have clear cut meanings, you can interpret them in different ways, unlike a song like "Jeremy" by Pearl Jam that although a superb song, is immediately understandable and specific in its meaning.

 HitSession Review: Nada Surf
Nada Surf - Let Go Way back in the 90's, Nada Surf emerged as a new band that purposely avoided the grunge tag while embracing a power-pop ethic that was in many ways similar to Weezer.
While the '95 album featured the college radio hit "Popular," it was the follow-up, Proximity Effect, that revealed a harder-edge, especially with the angry, powerful track "Mother's Day." Proximity Effect suffered from legal issues with the band's label, but was eventually re-issued in `'99.
But for the fan of highly personal, emotional music, Nada Surf have created a masterpiece of the early 21st century.
