Full radio rip is 'out there'. It's awesome! To think I had nearly lost all hope...
now i can go to sleep, once i've tracked it down...
Love the chorus, but otherwise a bit..meh. And don't get me started on those lyrics.
...maybe if I work with him, I can perfect the art"
This makes me very VERY happy. It's like the exact opposite of Beverley Hills lyrically - laden with snarky comments etc - as played by the Pinkerton era band.
This bodes very well indeed. Reckon this is one of the ones the band produced themselves?
"dat shyt is fyre"
me too.. my work blocks every site.
anyone downloaded it yet?
kind of somewhere between Pinkerton and Green, which is fine by me. Thing is, they'll never recapture the giddy adolescent thrill of Blue because they're international superstars now rather than geeky kids in a garage, but it's great to see they can still write good pop songs.
They're actually good again!
and could listen to it now....this afternoon is gonna proper drag now...FUCK IT ALL TO HELL!
but I really quite like this
as I was really expecting it to be utter shit.
There's a make believe vibe on there (those chunky fat riffs and solos belting out all over the place) but the vocals are the best they've been since Pinkerton and that Weezer kookyness is back in action and not in a Beverley Hills sorta way.
couldn't agree more
this is promising indeed.
it's like 'pinkerton' weezer ripping the piss out of "beverly hills" weezer.
i'm definitely very excited to hear the full red album.
its fantastic! literally amazing pop song
dont know what all the fuss is about. if you want to hear pinkerton era weezer...then maybe just listen to it?
weezer stopped being relevant or interesting a long time ago. as sad as that definately is.
The amount of antisipation and hype surrounding the upcomming album and the amount of attention a 30 SECOND clip got suggest otherwise, despite a poor last album.
still anticipate new weezer will be great and indeed these boards are teeming with anticipation, definately. but I just find it very strange that people only seem to like new weezer..if it sounds like old weezer. does that make them creatively defunct?
has the song now
... to it in decent quality on the Weezer site and I absolutely adore it. Can't be bothered deconstructing it right now, it just fucking rocks :-)
They're a pop band.
Blue/Pinkerton = Amazing pop records.
Green/Maladroit/Make Believe = Bad pop records, which most definitely could be described as "creatively defunct".
So, if Rivers is writing great pop songs again, I'd call it a return to their creative best.
on first listen. If the album can maintain the standard, post Make Believe equilibrium will be restored!
Why are people saying it sounds like Pinkerton? Get your heads out of your arses.
but having listened non stop over the last few days to Pinkerton, it is too produced to sound anything like that album. Blue/Green yes... not Pinkerton.
whole song had a Pavement feel to it. Especially the vocals...
on further listening, I think the verse is good, the chorus is great and the middle eight is just awful. Still, averages out at a good song.
since my last post. But why is everyone glossing around the whole 'lyrics are shit' issue?! I mean, they're almost Beverly Hills bad - they take so much away from what could be a great Weezer single
I think the lyrics are funny, sort of mocking Beverly Hills
if the rest of the album is half as oodas this song it will be better than make believe.
if you want a good quality rip of this, you might want to check some of the torrent sites. Can't say for certain, because obviously I don't involve myself in that sort of thing, but I've got a hunch you might say something. Don't know why you'd want to though. I've had another couple of listens and I've decided it's shit.
*might find something
It's definitely horrible, even having cranked the high quality version.
The lyrics are terrible, just vague meandering with some sort of possible-meta-bitching about being in a band.
The rest of it seems completely phoned in, a lazy chugalong that just sort of farts itself out of existence at the end.
I'd say it's their Masses Against the Classes, but it's not even that good. And it sounds like Pinkerton? Get te fuck it sounds like Pinkerton. Jesus we all desperately want Weezer to put out something half decent but this is not it.
It's just so bland but if that's what Weezer fans want these days. Let them have it. I can keep my Blue and Pinkerton memories and live with that....
one of the non-Rivers vocals songs is about, albeit in remix form:
and they're still shit. I listened to this song and ...yeah, it's shit... still. Let your childhood go, my friends!
but that song was DULL.
