New album out today, guys.

Surprisingly, I really dig it. It's not just the same stale power chords over and over for 40 minutes; there's a ton of creativity present. The reviews have been rather poor so far, which surprises me, and what surprises me even more is that Pork And Beans is getting a ton of praise. I think that track is one of the few to really stay in the past (past being 2002, not 1995, unfortunately) and provides little that's new and interesting.

I'd give the album an 8/10 overall.

I enjoyed it quite a bit my first time through as well, LeMeL. The lyrics are admittedly kinda weak on a number of tracks, but overall it's certainly better than Make Believe. Heck, I even like some of the bonus tracks on the deluxe edition better than albums tracks from Make Believe.

I forgot that Brian and Pat both sing lead vocals on the album. Their songs are actually pretty good.

I bought it. Listened to it. And discovered I liked a couple of the "bonus" tracks better than some of the actual tracks. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting after reading a bunch of reviews saying that it's not all power chords, because a lot of it, sadly, is.

Best Weezer album since at least Green.

"The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" FTW.

Pork and Beans is a cool song, but it's getting so much radio play around here, that I'm not liking it as much anymore.

I'm really on the fence about it - I love the first four or so tracks, but then it fluctuates a lot. It's definitely front-loaded with singles, for better or worse. As for the ever-less-than-stellar lyrics, I do love "Troublemaker," especially this one:

I picked up a guitar
What does it signify?
I'm gonna play some heavy metal riffs
And you will die

I definitely want to check this out, just to see if it's anything I remotely like. The last "new" Weezer song I heard was "Beverly Hills," which I hate hate HATE with the power of a thousand burning suns.

I agree. I love Weezer but "Pork and Beans" needs to grow on me. "Pork and Beans" reminds of songs from their album, Maladroit, which is a Weezer album that took some time to grow on me.

The other singles from the album, "Perfect Situation," "We are all on Drugs" and "This is Such a Pity" are far, far, far better.

So, as I am always wont to do, I have pulled together a new mix CD. There will be a second disc, because it's getting to the point that I love so many weezer songs that I can justify another. But this is my version of the ESSENTIAL WEEZER. It is very much singles driven, but they are very much a singles band, especially of late.

My Name is Jonas
Mykel and Carli
Perfect Situation
Hash Pipe
Keep Fishin'
El Scorcho
Photograph
Buddy Holly
Blast Off!
The Greatest Man that Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)
Dope Nose
The Good Life
This is Such a Pity
Say it ain't So
Island in the Sun
Troublemaker
Beverly Hills
We are all on Drugs
Pork and Beans
Burndt Jamb
Pink Triangle
Falling for You
Undone (The Sweater Song)
