Re: what the fuck
Listen to only in dreams before half of the songs on pinkerton and it has the same effect.

Re: what the fuck
there's plenty of great music out there (weezer and otherwise) that isn't nearly as good as OID.

but if anyone does that test and thinks the new stuff is better than OID, then they're idiots.

Re: what the fuck
Of coarse your going to think its better. Seeing that you have listened to OID 100 billion times and Take Control, what maybe 15? The argument that OID is better stems from your emotional connection to a song you feel is a classic.

Apples and Oranges comparrison. The new batch of songs aren't supposed to tap into the same emotional vein. Does sound to you like hes trying to? Take the new music for what it is: Solid rocking music.

Note: this is not an argument that the new is better than old or visa/versa. Its all good in its own right.

i actually think that listening to take control over 15 times makes it a worse song. I'll listen to OID a billion times and still love it.

It works in the context of the song. Same thing with the lyrics. Nothing weezer has done is very original...you're famous because you write consistently good pop songs. I can see where you think it's rather messy though....do you think you could record OID the same way you did in 93, today?

Re: what the fuck
Argue what you will, ace, about Only In Dreams.. but it doesn't change the fact that a lot of people truly love that song, people that care about music.. that song just MOVES a lot of people, and you can't deny that. Whether or not it conforms to some abstract formula or anything.. it doesn't change the fact of what it means to some people. Do you understand this? I'd kill to have people feel that way about one of my songs.

I seriously doubt ANYONE feels the same way about anything you've put out recently.

Cheesy lyrics are ok here since the song doesnt follow the structure that the recent songs all have, Intro,Verse, verse, chorus, solo, half chorus, outro.

we put up with that shit because it's immediately followed by

that way there's no chance i will
crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces,

and because of the whole "she's in the air" segment.

if you intersperse gold like that with the gay gay gay stuff, we will love it.

OID's lyrics work because of the music behind them. But they are kinda middle-school cheesy. I think D&D's lyrics work for the same reason. I can't say OID is a bad song, but I will say that the build up is a little too long and unnecessary.

Re: ...
as for oid's cheesiness. . . given your position on "fakeness"i am not sure how it's possible to write an authentically sentimental song short of the type of "over-emotion," super-realistic stuff on Pinkerton.

OID's cheesiness works because of the specificity of the lyrics....the series of cliches with that "but when we wake it's all been erased" twist. I like D&D, but i think it's less powerful because it lacks that lyrical specificity (and a 4 minute instrumental that alienates/bores the average listeners).

Re: ...
I noticed a definite attempt to make the vocals better towards the end of the recording process. A few of the songs have some feeling, but I would agree the first two albums are better lyrically and vocally.

I think Only In Dreams is good but it isn't one of my favorites on the blue album. Jonas, No One Else, Say It Ain't So... I don't believe you actually think that was a bad album.

I also hate December with a passion. I will agree that Slob kills OID... I don't know why but I love that song and I always have.
