hey guys what if it was really good

EDIT: Also fuck this article.

"Even though mainstream rock has taken a polished, corporate-centric turn since Weezer first broke out
in the early 1990s, the band has managed to maintain the same attitude"

I can't stand that they pretend like weezer doesn't blow the most cock now. Of course it's a release
announcement so that's not how it's gonna be spun, but it still pisses me off.

why doesn't Cuomo just put out this garb as his solo work so the weezer fans that still exist can stop getting their hopes up..

Album will probbly blow but theres still a tiny part of me hoping it wpn't because it's on an indie label and maybe they got all their shittiness out with Red and Raditude.....

But it'll probably suck bals

Somehow, I think they might release something of a better substance since they're no longer under the huge label they were in before, but hopefully something of better substance, since they're independently releasing it.

But that's just me being speculative, assuming Cuomo can actually come up with something different than he has always done the past 20 years.

i saw Weezer live and i had a lot more respect for the 'new material' in a live context. sure it's kind of cheap and superficial but i can accept that that's what weezer is now. i am honestly interested in this release, if not necessarily looking forward to it.

i dont think it's crazy to say that weezer have started purposely making shitty music either during or after make believe because there is simply no point in trying to make good music anymore if they still get hits out of it. rivers is playing the pop music game and has stopped playing the actual musician game.

They basically did the opposite of Korn. Instead of making records crying their entire career, they grew the fuck up. But still made shit music in the process... COMING SOON!, Weezer III

Rolling Stone raves this is a return to form, and their best album since the Blue Album!

weezer baffles by how high they are shooting on this one. Pinkerton reeked of pretentiousness, but pinkerton was also not shit. They are putting out all the stops to not only give off a hyper advanced form of the pinkerton smell, but also somehow find a way to suck worse then raditude.

False. Most of Maladroit was pretty decent, and there's at least two-three good songs per modern Weezer album typically

The Stones got the same treatment as Weezer are getting now. Zeppelin nearly did but didn't, and the Beatles could have but didn't so they're out of the question. The fact is, Weezer have done it, yet instead of call it quits they persist on releasing dull, uninspired albums just to keep the income in.

yeah... gotta pay the bills, but writing bad music also comes with a cost

income + making bad music = loss of fanbase

exactly whats happened here. you saying 'at least they're trying' contradicts your last comment when you basically say they're not. they're now just making music for the hell of it, hence why everyone is now saying this band should give up.
