Weezer


#201

The recorded version is fucking great, and pisses all over the original - and I say that as a green album apologist. Actually kind of an interesting case study in good songwriting and good musicianship/performance being two distinct things which sometimes intersect.


#202

Ughhhh weezer


#203

The best Weezer song released in the last fifteen years isn’t even by Weezer


#204

Listening to Pacific Daydream for the first time.

I…

I…

Like it.


#205

Although I really liked The White Album too. So, yeah.


#206

OK. No, it’s terrible. White is way better.


#207

Not sure if I can even do Pinkerton anymore tbh. Great when you’re an angsty, sexually frustrated, probs-a-bit-misogynistic teenager but pretty awks otherwise.

Blue is good.


#208

made this abomination


#209

Yeah youre right


#210

Baaaah


#211

did these people write My name is Jonas?


#212

Well, this is certainly embarrassing. I don’t know what would be worse, if they’re genuinely unaware of it or if they think they’re being funny / cute.


#213

New Weezer stuff tomorrow…


#214

Maybe it’ll be a return to form? Like Blue/Pinkerton era…


#215

#216

New songs alright. A complete departure into pop music but at least they’ve not done it with the subtlety of a ham-fisted hippopotamus attempting chopsticks on a freight train so it’s not inheriently bad, in fact pretty catchy and has a solid groove to it.


#217

Oh dear.
Maybe it’s a grower. Maybe.


#218

hmmm, not certain, but that seems relentlessly mediocre. It’s got shades of when the Offspring gave up completely in about 2002 or whenever it was - can’t remember if I mean Conspiracy of One or the one after that. It’s catchy though.


#219

Ill give it a 5 out of 10


#220

Absolutely perplexed by Dave Sitek producing this
