What's not to like??? It's Weezer baby!!!!!!
Did you hate the demo too? There's something about catchy acoustic / live versions to full-band conversions that I like. I hated Ash's Meltdown until I started listening to the acoustic live version of the album. Afterward I listened to it again and it was love. I figure that might have happened with this song too, save for the sequence.I Dont want your lovin-6/10: Not a bad song by a long shot...but not a great one either
The album is not horrible by any means. Is it as good as Hurley? No, but it's only a couple steps behind it.
After first listen, I could say I really enjoyed Turning up the Radio, IDWYL, BMS, Trampoline, and Unbreak My Heart. The middle was 'eh' for me initially, but after a couple more listens, I can say that I like the album as a whole. Again, Weezer ventures off a bit, but retains their classic sounds in many ways.
If I had to pick my least favorite, it would be Autopilot. It's better than Trainwrecks though, that's for sure.
I completely disagree. I think DTFM is the best post-Pinkerton Weezer album. You may think I'm crazy, but I almost think it is the new Pinkerton. Funny that these are all studio album rejects (if you want to call them that) over a long period of years and releases, but with the exception of maybe the last track, the cover - it comes across to me as a singular, cohesive album.
I don't write a lot here, but my here's my brief Weezer history. I was a freshman in high school and 13 years old in 1994 when I first heard the Blue album. It was the first week of high school and it was almost like everyone received the album that week along with their freshman orientation crap. We were told about the album from music savy Juniors in a music appreciation class (yeah I was already after the easy credits) and heard Undone on the radio and on MTV. The Blue album was like the high school bible.
When Pinkerton came out I was 16 and a Junior and while I liked El Scorcho the music and concepts really flew over my head at the time. I was one of the ones guilty of dismissing Pinkerton initially (I really think you need to be a certain age or experience to really get it) and by then I was totally into Pearl Jam, Radiohead, etc... Pinkerton made sense to me in college and now it's definitely in top 5 albums.
Now as a 31 year old with a home, wife, two kids, and a horribly boring job - I can relate to the message (yep I think there is one) on DTFM. It hits me perfectly.
So yeah I disagree that it is awful. Give it another shot. I didn't love it on first listen - but after many, I do.
Why is everyone saying that Everyone is no good? I LOVED Everyone, it may even be my favorite song on the album. Either that or Losing My Mind.
