I know I’m late to the listening party here, but IMO this is easily their best since Pinkerton. From what I’ve read, it sounds like Rivers really tried to make a good album, and I’m happy he succeeded. I gave up hope of another decent Weezer album a long time ago, but Rivers has proved that he still has some good music left in him.

Playlist looks great, but you’re missing two of my absolute favorites – “You Won’t Get With Me Tonight” and “Blast Off.”

Not b-sides technically, but they were written and recorded in between Blue and Pinkerton.

Sorry, but not a revisionist history. Back in high school, I frequented Weezer message boards in between the releases of Maladroit and Make Believe. Back then, there were a lot of people that really, really did not like Green and Maladroit. It’s really funny to me now, that in the grand scheme of all things Weezer, those two albums are relative high points.

I love this album. It is an anomaly in the R.E.M. catalog and I think that’s part of what makes it special.

I’m surprised at how invested in this album I am now. I wrote off Weezer sometime around the red album, but now I find myself hoping this new one will be good. My fingers are crossed for at least an Oceania level comeback.

Well, this is pretty unexpected. They were announcing new tour dates as recent as this week, so there must have been some sort of drama amongst band members.

In my opinion, 4 out of the 6 reunion albums are pretty great, so I’m upset. Motivational Jumpsuit is top-notch.

Only 10 minutes in so far, but I’m liking it a lot. Very subdued and low-key, but I like the mood.

Man, I bet David Guetta is just really tired in this video. The dude’s not young, and his job is basically to just blast party music all night, every night.

Rivers’ voice kind of irritates me on the recent albums. I don’t know if it’s because of the production or his age or whatever, but his singing just sounds so much better on Blue and Pinkerton.

I love this album, but I don’t understand why it’s considered the cream of the crop in GBV’s catalog. I think it was the first album of theirs that I listened to, but it didn’t sell me on the band. I don’t think it’s as fun as Alien Lanes and Propeller, or as accessible as Under the Bushes Under the Stars.

I don’t know what I’m saying, really. I’m not trying to knock Bee Thousand – it’s obviously great. I guess I’m just confused at how some people really enjoy this one, but can’t get into other GBV albums. To me, the band has at least 4 or 5 unimpeachable classics.
