The new Weezer album rollout has lasted longer than 65% of American marriages, and what do ya know, IT CONTINUES. Today, the band drop another dumb-concept video, teasing another Everything Will Be Alright In The End track, “Lonely Girl.” To my ear this one sounds like standard post-Pinkerton filler; not bad, not real interesting, perfectly acceptable. I should say that the last song they released, “Cleopatra,” is one of my favorite post-Pinkerton Weezer songs, so I’m not hating. I want this album to be GREAT, I promise, because I am a Weezer fan, and they have it in them to be GREAT. This, to me, sounds no better (or worse) than pretty good. Listen for yourself and let’s talk about it.
Everything Will Be Alright In The End is out 10/7 via Republic.
