Does anyone else realize rivers voice today on the old pinkerton and blue album songs just isnt the same. Whenever he has to sing loud he yells in an obnoxious,annoying voice that doesn't feel and sound like his old voice. It's almost like he tries to sing to not make his voice crack or sound bad but really whenever his voice does crack and has a deeper tone to it, it sounds better, more raw,and alot more enjoyable to listen to. For example in uspoken he sung in a soft voice and sounded extremely young. In Butterly he also sung in a soft voice but it was alot more emotional and his voice sounded 10 times better even though it cracks throughout the song. It's funny because it seems like rivers wants to sing in that annoying voice instead of his original pinkerton/blue voice. But occasionally in some peformances he does sound like the old him like in the 2009 aol buddy holly recording. Trampoline and Everyone also sound like his original voice and i know there old but there post pinkerton.And God only knows sounds great.When ever the the green album dropped along with all those demos he never sounded the same. Very sad for the old weezer fans. I bet it goes all the back from pinkerton on trying to get away from that sound. I know its not him getting older because he sounds even younger when he sings on the newer records. I just wish he would stop trying to sound like that and just be him even though its rougher and it cracks but its so much more better like that, I had to brings this up because every concert he just sounds so bad on pretty much every pinkerton/blue song especially el scorcho, tired of sex, and getchoo. El scorcho probably the worst because he uses that annoying voice so much in it. no more quality yells.
