Weezer Goes Teal

2019-01-24 by Rowan5215 STAFF | 33 Comments
If you thought you had Weezer's 2019 pegged, think again, as the lovable nerds have surprised dropped a covers album to iTunes. Titled The Teal Album and rocking the best album art since Red, the album sees Weezer following through on the smash success of "Africa" and tackling songs by a-ha, Tears for Fears, Michael Jackson and more. Check it out on iTunes, along with a rationale by Cuomo and Bell for the album's existence - not that we've ever needed that from Weezer, who at this point just do whatever the fuck Weezer want.

It's fun, but how is this objectively better than a lot of cover bands? Weezer saw their biggest single in over a decade from an 80's cover band, and now they've doubled down on it, and while it's fun, and the music is true to the originals, they offer very little from their own corner in terms of building upon these songs. It's cover songs with Rivers on vocals, I can dig it, but they're absolutely nothing to hang your hat on or praise, and it's simply playing into this nostalgia culture where there's a new generation of people who hear very little rock music on the radio and these songs are iconic in their own right and still have an audience, I just believe Weezer in total adds nothing to the originals or makes them their own. Case in point, almost all the covers, while solid, only make me want to listen to the originals.

Respectively disagree, Jacked Up alone is better than anything on here.

Has anyone ever tried to have a conversation with DORBUSCUS to find out why he's such an angsty 14 year old?
