What's the difference between Weezer in 1998 and now? This song. I bet if Matt Sharp rejoined Weezer, you'd get the proper follow-up to Pinkerton within a year. The truth is, Rivers Cuomo needs somebody to tell him to stop trying to be cool and just write a song that he can actually feel.
I hate to harp on it, really, but this came up on my iPod on shuffle today and my first thought was about how great the Blue album and Pinkerton are. Whatever the fallout between Cuomo and Sharp was, it's a damn shame. At least we've got a couple good albums from The Rentals to go with the two classic Weezer albums.
