If you’re like me, it’s been a gradual downward spiral for Weezer since Pinkerton. Not to say they’re horrible, but the music has just been consistently a little worse, one record at a time.
The thought that something has been a little “off” in Weezer land was confirmed for me minutes ago when I read a headline stating: “Weezer to Release own Snuggie Blanket”. Calling it “the Wuggie“, frontman Rivers Cuomo explains it as “exactly like a Snuggie, except it says Weezer on it.” Next steps for Rivers and the gang?? I’d say:
a.) release a concept album with members of the Polyphonic Spree
b.) jump straight to starting their own “religion” in a compound in central Texas.
