Please stop buying their music, guys.

Please.   It's only encouraging them to make more music.

It ain’t white or EWBAITE but it’s a cohesive song with a nice hook and no embarrassing effects added. That’s lower top tier Weezer territory.

I can also see more of the through line from parts of Black to this and OK Human. He’s making smaller, more tight pop songs and drifting away from the gimmicky obnoxious stuff. Black had a few really solid songs buried under the cringe-worthy effects and production but those handful of songs and everything since sounds pretty similar and consistent. Just different execution.
Right now, I prefer the big guitar execution, even with the silly Van Halen noodling. OK Human felt like it didn’t do the songs full service and like one of those bonus albums bands release of them playing their songs live with an orchestra. It’s interesting to hear but kind of a bummer if those are the definitive versions. I’d love to hear guitar Weezer versions of OK Human.

Not a bad song. Any word on an indie color or was that the magenta? I don't think I can bring myself to go for the $14 shipping for the yellow on their site. 

I grabbed the magenta from Rough Trade as I doubt my local shop will get this in - since they didn’t get in OK.

Try their site, I found 4 nearby stores to pre-order the neon magenta from.

I just don't know how they didn't use their logo in the van halen format for the cover? On one hand it's way too obvious but it's a million times better than what they went with. I don't think they realize how important cover art is. This fan made art would make me more interested in checking out the album. credit to reddit user capsvlecorpsspacer.png

As a graphic design nerd, this times 1 billion. Man we need to somehow get these alt cover jackets printed for those who'd rather have it. Would look great with the neon yellow variant more too. 

 

Maybe like a slip cover of sorts??? Anyone with resources/knowledge on that end?

Almost 100% certain this was some hastily thrown together temporary cover provided by their label. They wanted to do a pre-order before the album was even done.

Haven’t heard this one in full yet but OK Human ended up being like a McDonalds quarter pounder with the meat replaced by an artisan veggie patty. Why would you do that? The shitty McDonalds bun and cheese ruins the veggie patty and the veggie patty ruins the shitty delicious McDonalds you’re craving in what is a shameful moment of poor judgment. Give me dumb guitar Weezer when I’m jonesing for the dumb band Weezer!
