Weezer: New LP - 10/27/09

From pitchforkmedia:

New Weezer Album Gets Release Date

According to a post on Weezer's MySpace, the band's much-rumored seventh album is now due October 27. We can only hope recently debuted teen-pop tributes "I'm Your Daddy" (er) and "The Girl Got Hot" (um) are included.

------------

The last one sure didn't age well but hey, ya never know.

I'm already gonna say I'm in the minority in that I've really liked everything Weezer has ever done, even the Red Album. Definitley looking forward to this.

Love the Red Album too. I think it is one of their better albums...

Awesome! Looking forward to it and seeing them in concert on the 23rd of this month, maybe they'll play 1 or 2 of the new tracks.

Wow, I'm surprised. I thought that it was their weakest effort aside from the dismal Make Believe. Different strokes.

I think Maladroit is easily their weakest record, but I love all Weez.

Well, I am the fan that still doesn't like Pinkerton, but I would say Maladriot or Pinkerton are my least favs...

I was one of the first to instantly dismiss The Red Album, but after repeat listens, it has gotten better overtime.

With that note, bring on the new LP.

This. Maladroit is miles behind everything else they've done.

That makes two of us...since I agree with you. I thought Red was a return to form.

I'll get it. I still love Weezer. They make fun music, and that's not such a bad thing. I thought the Red Album was really good as well. "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" is an awesome track.

Weezer is one of my favorite bands ever so I'm definitely buying this as soon as its out. I too am one of the few Weezer fans who doesn't bitch and moan about everything aside from The Blue Album and Pinkerton sucking.

I've come to believe that even the fans that claim to like Pinkerton really don't, they just like to say so in some effort to think they are bigger fan of the band than you are.

Don't believe the hype. Fans who claim to like or love Pinkerton actually do like or love that record! It is "from the heart," it is "catchy as all hell," it is "raw and very autobiographical."

The album is a peach, and is one of the few albums I truly love from start to finish. I can't even say that for the "Blue" album (the last two songs I can leave).

What about us once Weezer fans that loved the 1st album and Pinkerton and then kinda hated most everything else?

Pinkerton is a fantastic album, is there really not much love for it here?


Maybe I'm just a Matt Sharp fan?

I love Pinkerton! How dare you question my love for that album.

But seriously, it is a great album. I can't wait to hear the new stuff.

Add me to the list of Pinkerton lovers!

I also enjoy Make Believe (quite a bit) and the Red Album (to a lesser extent).

Red's my least favorite and I'm looking for the new album to see if they rebound or decline.

Why not? It isn't like Weezer songs are super complicated and overly long.
