'I've Had It Up to Here' with Weezer!
Everything Will Be Alright In The End
Weezer - 2014
I think it was Andy Mandiak who first shared the following joke with me.
What do Ginger Baker and coffee have in common?
They both suck without Cream.
Let’s cut a long story short here. I feel the same about Rivers Cuomo without Ric Ocasek.
It’s true that Cuomo can pen a power pop/rock tune but his ambition has long exceeded his talent. It takes a master craftsman such as Ocasek to rein him in and help the band deliver a quality product.
In conclusion, Everything Will Be Alright in the End is the best thing to come from Weezer since the Green Album.
PS I can assure you that I’m not trying to fan flames or ruffle feathers here but it needs to be said that the brilliant Green Album is a far better record than the band’s debut.C. Scott Back
