it doesn't seem terribly logical to combine current weezer with 1995 matt sharp as an example of how they might sound today.
Teddy said:In your head, combine the return of the rentals/ that's incredible! with weezer 2k__... sounds perfect, right? Sharp must've been more than merely a "stooge."
BackToSchool said:Matt Sharp is no "missing link". He didn't write the songs, he didn't co-write the songs, he didn't write his own vocal parts, the synth-lines, his bass-lines, any of it. He was a stooge who contributed nothing more than his onstage energy. His presence is unnecessary and would not improve anything. The buck stops with Rivers.
But I suspect he's not all that into their new material, either.
