Woe is Weezer

Today Weezer released their third self-titled album (the so-called "Red Album"). I decided it'd be quicker, considering my busy after-work errand schedule, to simply hit the 30-second samples on iTunes.

Yup. They still suck hard. Probably harder, in fact.

Steven Hyden over at The A.V. Club sums it up for is:

The breathtakingly stupid Weezer begs the question: Is this for real? Or are the over-processed hooks and lobotomized lyrics intentional self-parody? When Rivers Cuomo sings, "So turn off the TV, 'cause that's what others see, and movies are as bad as eating chocolate ice cream," is he a comic genius feigning creative bankruptcy?
