Ouch, can you seriously not hear any beauty in that outro? I think it is a real refreshing, experimental (by Weezer standards) breath of fresh air. I like to close my eyes when it's on and allow the music to take me to another realm.
I remember reading once that The Angel in the One is Rivers saying, "alright guys, enough goofing around [with the Red album], here's the real deal.", and I kind of agree with that kid. The song is brimming with real emotion (and has a set of beautiful lyrics to match!), rides on a unique, flowing song structure, has guitar work captures the 'romantic longing' Rivers in '02 confessed was essential to his songwriting, and there are some gorgeous, classic Weezer harmonies at the "Peace, shalom." part, when Rivers cuts in with his "woohoos" at 3:57 I climax. It's gorgeous and it personally happens to be the type of music I'd expect the band who wrote Pinkerton 12 years before it to be producing. Unfortunately this type of ambition, songcraft, emotion and execution in Weezer was all but a fleeting moment. In '08 I hoped with all of my heart that The Angel and the One would be signalling the direction of Weezer's future; I'm damn disappointed in my heart because it didn't work and now we're stuck with material like 'Trainwrecks', 'Smart Girls' and 'Where's My Sex?'; ick.
Oh, by the way, everyone, do yourselves a favour and listen to Pat's drumming on this track and notice not only how good it sounds but also how it slowly builds up, adding a new beat each bar. It kind of sounds like Pat is slowly warming up, and in essence he is, charging up until he releases all of that pent-up energy during the song's crescendo. Give Pat some love for it, yo!
Wow I got auto correct ownd, drags*, Anybodies*,that's*
pinecone said:The thing I don't like about angel is it drag on at the end a lot , it's not antibes fault it's just the way the riff is the end note is also the first note so it's easy to keep going theyre both great song but thyself my reason for my choice
James Stockwell (Jamekae) said:The Angel and the One should win this. Greatest Man is a fun song, but it's not a great song like The Angel imo.
If The Greatest Man That Ever Lived was a man it would be The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.
In other words I am voting for The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.
ohh! ok! haha, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.
