So, can people stop belittling it please?
but also agree it is still a good album.
of "yeah, last night was good, just had a beer and watched the Apprentice", rather than good in the sense of, "bacon is so good it's freakin' unbelievable".
i love it, fall together, dope nose keep fishin, burndt jamb, december, all really good songs.
i just feel that in comparison to weezer, pinkerton and weezer it seems a bit weaker. although, it was the first weezer album i bought way back in 2002 and without it i wouldn't have bought the other albums and fallen in love with them and made them my favourite band ever.
It is great. :)
is a pop genius. He has written hundreds of fucking good pop songs. Having said that, dont get that "Alone: Home recordings of Rivers Cuomo" (i forget what its called, but its pretty self explanatory) maybe i need to listen to it more, but it was a bit shite in my opinion...
rnb thing on it was so good i had to return it.
nice username :]
It easily has some of their best songs on it, and the opening 5 tracks are amazing.
and 'Slob' is a solid song.
...is the only Weezer song outside of Blue/Pinkerton that really stacks up IMO. And the Burndt Jamb riff is tasty. Otherwise, i'd say it's no Green, and that's not saying a whole lot.
Sure it's not a masterpiece but vastly underrated. December, Love Explosion, Slob, American Gigolo and Living Without You are pretty flawless songs.
Yes, Make Believe is pretty bad in places - as has been stated to death on this site - but it's got Haunt You Every Day and The Damage In Your Heart on it which can make me ignore My Best Friend.
This Is The Way from Alone is I think the most unforgivable creation Rivers has given us and I pray to God daily that it doesn't make it anywhere near any Weezer album any time soon.
