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.
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.
”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.)
