    Shredding Weezer is the best Weezer

    If the whole album really is Van Halen worship, I hope OK Human is Radiohead worship. Would be wild

    At this point, I have way more faith in them churning out weird pop records than I do classic Weezer records, and that's okay

    Sucks that we probably won't hear OK Human until 2021, unless they decide to drop two albums next year (definitely not out of the question with this band). But this record is going to be great so it's alright.

    I'm in love with this song. That riff is stuck in my head.

    Just a heads up, glow in the dark is super cool but sounds like garbage

    How Green Day, Fall Out Boy & Weezer Teamed Up for the Biggest Rock Event of 2020

    From this article:
    "It’s a healthy mix of the Blue Album and guitar shreddage, ’80s metal riffs -- our fun, extroverted side. We feel comfortable really going for it because, at the same time, we’re making another album [for 2020] called Okay Human, which so far has no guitars. It’s all piano-based and orchestrated -- the strings were recorded at Abbey Road. It’s very introverted and quirky."

    Hell yeah

    although sometimes, when Rivers makes Blue Album comparisons, I wonder if he's actually heard the album lol

    I'm very interested in a no-guitar Weezer album

    I am very, very in for these two records dropping in the same year. Feed us Rivers.

    Okay Human is either going to be the best Weezer album or the worst

    Riff reminds me of this.

    I think by comparing it to the Blue Album he just means they'll be catchy pop-rock songs haha

    I'd actually say The End of the Game sounds closer to something on Green or Maladroit.

    Enjoyed it but wasn't super excited about The End of the Game on the first listen but it's really growing on me now

    I know he was an absolute legend in music but Weezer was the first thing I thought of when I heard the news

    I think “Just What I Needed” is a top 10 all time song of mine. It’s deceptively genius. The urgency in his (Orr) voice, the production. It’s so special. Not to mention a ton of other great Cars songs. And of course The Blue Album. One of the first records I ever loved.

    Ric is without a doubt a legend. But I also think of when he was supposed to produce all of “Even If It Kills Me” for MCS and only did like six or seven songs because he’d love their bad takes and they thought he was fucking with them.

    One of my favorite things about Weezer is their silly album covers.

    Can I measure your tree?

    not gonna lie this is what I'm really excited for, like imagine an album of them on their "Jacked Up" shit omg

    even though I was really just hoping they'd double album us, "End of the Game" rules so it's all good

    I've ranted about their recent quality upswing to my friend so much that the word "Weezaissance" is just saved in my phone autosave

    I'm very happy about this fact
