Review Summary: They decided to have fun. Why don´t we?

Make this record back in the nineties and get axed. Release the Teal Album now, when music -at least the mainstream music- is so generic and formulaic, and i´d call it a joyful record to listen to. I know they won´t get points for originality, but the weird mix somehow works. Weezer give audiences a chance to scape reality (no recreational drugs needed) and travel to all of your fond memories and stories back when you were, let´s say, young.

You get a collection of memories so vastly different from each other, but they find the way to coexist peacefully. You have your eighties ones, filled with europop tunes, a nineties girl group lost gem, a tune previously cover virgin, until now, a recollection of your heaviest musical experiences and so on. This is great. Nowadays music united all kinds of "old" styles into one category: Good Music. And that is what the Teal Album is about: rediscovering (though they were never lost) good songs, for the sole sake of it.

And about Weezer. I don´t know what it is, but in most songs, i think Rivers´ voice and the feel of the whole band just works. i love the modern drum sound and the way they didn´t try to reinvent the songs, but just channeling their energy. I just enjoy music when i feel the musicians are enjoying it. And if people complain for the lack of original material, well, kill this review with negative votes all you want, but i prefer old gems to soulless modern plastic music. Who knows, perhaps they get the attention of nowadays music listeners who didn´t know some of the original tracks. Boy i´d like to see them discovering a new (old) world of great music. Thanks Weezer.

okay review idea-wise, but what's with the weird spaces between apostrophes?

also this: "Weezer give audiences a chance to scape reality"

also a few randomly uncapitalized i's, this is a review not a soundoff right?

It's kind of annoying how these reviews barely talk about the actual music
