Weezer Kick It Old School

    The Blue Album and Pinkerton came out a long time ago (21 and 19 years respectively) and after that there was very little of anything particularly high quality coming from Weezer with the exception of some awesome singles on some not-so-awesome albums. However last year, all that changed with the release of the criminally underrated Everything Will Be Alright In The End. I personally think of it as Pinkerton 2.0. With mature songwriting about regrets, nostalgia, and fatherhood, it was the next chapter in the life of the angsty awkward teen in Pink. It was the first time we had heard that honest songwriting from Rivers that made us connect with Rivers all those years ago.

    Then I heard "Thank God For Girls" and we were right back to the "LOL looK@ mE sooooooooOOooo RNDM" bulls*** we got on Raditude and Make Believe. No more honesty, no more maturity, almost as if all the growth they accomplished on Everything Will Be Alright was just a fluke. I was devastated. I had so much hope for Weezer; they had fully redeemed themselves in my eyes and were about to throw it all away. Now they've just released "Do You Wanna Get High?" and I was somewhat relieved. It's not growth; it's a step back in time. Further back in time than "Thank God For Girls," back to the golden age, back to the shack, back to Pinkerton. The song is young and immature...just about a girl asking if you wanna go get high, but at least it's honest.
