I'm glad to see they're finally going to release this thing. It sounds very calm, relaxed, unrushed...That's pretty much what the process was I believe.
I wonder what the other guys in the band have been thinking. Initially it's like "Hey this is my big break!" Then Brian is like "Hey I gotta go do another Weezer record, wait here 'till I get back." Frustrating, but hopefully some people will buy the album. Brian doesn't need the money but perhaps the other guys do.
I like a couple of songs, but otherwise, this is a little sleepy for me. I really admire Brian though, and have never been able to resist his good looks and great hair. I'm going to buy it, but I don't know how much I'll actually be grooving to it.
