That's cool. I don't think Ric's done any producing since Motion City. I hope he's not like a Rick Rubin and just presses record. They're a band that needs direction.

Hurley wasn't tragic so I'm hoping this is good. I want a new Weezer record that I'll listen to more than just a few times.

Weezer hasn't released an album I've loved in a long long time, but I have hope that they still got something left. Ocasek is a great choice, hope he brings out their power pop. No fucks given about greatest hits of course.

Hurley had a couple catchy songs mixed in with the shit, so I haven't given up all hope on them.

My thoughts, too. I like a majority of Hurley.

Speaking of Ric Ocasek (and going slightly off-topic), we need another album by The Cars. That last album from a couple of years ago was a pretty decent comeback.

Maybe they'll go back to a Blue Album type sound after celebrating the 10 year and having to play it every second night for the most part of the last year and a bit. It's a definitely a possibility because when they were writing this record, they would've had that in the back of their minds the entire time. Also, the source link is broken.

If they were gonna go back to an old sound, I'd much prefer Pinkerton.

You're not alone there, but I was just saying because they've had to play it a lot lately it may have influenced their writing of this new record.

Yeah, I know. And there's like a 0% chance they ever release anything again that resembles Pinkerton, so the Blue Album is probably a more realistic hope.

Exactly! Let's hope they don't release something like Ratitude again. That album was horrible.

Hopefully they don't write with about 5o co writers again.
