This is exactly what Weezer needs to sound like in the modern music area - Pop Rock goodness that comes from a place of sincerity. It's certainly still Weezer. But there's is something just so easy to listen to here. It's well produced. It's slick, smooth, and polished to a mirror shine. Just so simple to run from cover to cover. There were times that I forgot that this was the same band that came out with "Hash Pipe." But I don't mean that in a bad way. This is just as exciting and fun as those early records were. I couldn't be more of a fan of this.
