But they really like Hurley and think it's a great rebound! (CNN just sourced them, but I couldn't find it on their website)

READ: I was too lazy to look up the link on EW haha.

That's what I was trying to say. I think they wanted to get out as quick as possible.

Weezer had a seven album contract with Geffen... 'Raditude' completed this (although weren't 'Weezer (1994)' and 'Pinkerton' both on independent release? Maybe Geffen getting rights to those counted as 2/7 and they reissued them) and I really think Weezer was looking for something else... I'm sure Geffen wanted to keep Weezer.

But check out the story behind "Pork and Beans"... Rivers was getting sick of Geffen's control. So he wrote the song, basically as a big "screw you" to them. And probably after 'Weezer (2008)', they were in a rush to get 'Raditude' out there and slip out of Geffen's hands... I'm not saying 'Raditude' was bad or rushed, I rather liked it, but that could explain the three albums knit so closely.

Anyways, on the topic of the 'Hurley' review, I'd say it's a very accurate review. Good grade, relatively good insight on the lyrics and such. It's fair. 'Hurley' is definitely an "A" album.
They were both originally released by Geffen.

unlike others, in the mall was easily one of my favourites off raditude, the chorus was so damn catchy

Or maybe it will be, considering it was just told.

I liked "I Don't Want To Let You Go" and "I'm Your Daddy"
