"Almost" full tracklist has been revealed, except for track 9. New single this Thursday, which will be Beach Boys.

Beach Boys

Mexican Fender has really grown on me and I liked Feels Like Summer for the unusual feel, but this one is not working for me at all.

Not sold on Beach Boys yet, but maybe it'll grow on me. This album is really not looking too good so far.

I went through about 5 different emotions listening to that. Not a huge fan right now but I'm sure once I've heard it in the context of the album I'll change my mind.

I can't lie, I hate this new song. All three of the new tracks do nothing for me. Ah well.

For as pop as it is, I've grown to really like "Feels Like Summer" but man, these last two singles are just not doing it at all from me. I agree that everything so far sounds overproduced, but that's been a problem for them before.

This is really good and all, but we just got two good Weezer albums in a row, so this new direction is a big bummer. An Endless Bummer, it seems.

Not a fan of the new song, and I really like Mexican Fender, and even Feels like Summer.

But, there's always one or two songs I hate on a Weezer album.

Not feeling the new stuff at all, though I think everything since Make Believe has been absolute diarrhoea so probably best to just not care about Weezer any more.

There's a bit less "cautious" in my cautious optimism each time Weezer does a new album now. I've only listened to two of the songs coming from this album, but I like them.

I actually really liked this one. Probably the best first impression of any of the songs so far.

If anyone is on the fence about these, listen to the first three in the order they appear on the album. They actually go together quite nicely and put to rest some of my fears about this direction.

It is physically impossible to talk about weezer without shitposting. I call it Cuomo's law.

Weekend Woman is alright, definitely the best single so far. I don't know what I think of this album so far though I mean Beach Boys was alright but the other singles were pretty disappointing. I mean it's safe to say this is gonna be a "summer" themed album at this point.

I'm conflicted about the new song. It's not a bad song, and I can see it growing on me, but it doesn't sound like "Weezer" to me, but more like a collab between Rivers and some other band/artist, if that makes any sense.

I'm actually alright with Happy Hour, it's definitely a pop song though. Could even see a dance mix of it.

Guess this is their pop album.

Don't really agree. Both "Feels Like Summer" and "Happy Hour" are catchy and fun.

Happy Hour is the kind of song that's playing when you're trying on jeans in an Old Navy fitting room and the tags are scraping against your hip.

I've liked a couple of the songs but I'm really not feeling optimistic about the album.

That's a funny comparison, because I actually heard Feels Like Summer in an Old Navy a couple months ago. Was a bit shocked, but it made sense, lol.

I mean even if they're going for a pop sound it's not even good pop. Very disappointing coming off the last two albums which were good and now it's back to bad Weezer songs.

Billboard interview.

“We’re not trying to re-create the 20th-century recording experience,” adds Cuomo, referring to the band-in-a-room studio approach the group took on 2016’s Weezer (colloquially known as the “White Album”) at producer Jake Sinclair’s behest. While that LP was nominated for a best rock album Grammy in February, Cuomo wasn’t satisfied with the music itself, which he thinks “sounded like 1994 all over again.”

Being a Weezer fan is an amazing and frustrating journey. :lol

(I don't want them to just redo the 90s, but I thought White was a good example of them finding middle ground between their roots and modern stuff.)

Happy Hour sounds pretty good live actually. Adds some more guitar in there. Watched them play on Facebook Live.

LOL at Rivers not liking White Album, their best album in many years, IMO. Oh well, let them experiment. :)
