Writing the words of a sermon...
I think I'm in the minority but I really like the three songs done by the other members. I will fully agree that it wrecks the momentum of the album but most of the time I just load up a bunch of cd's into Winamp and shuffle them anyways so it doesn't cause a huge problem.
If you haven't heard the deluxe issue, you should try to get those four tracks. I think the inclusion of those four tracks really boosted my overall feel for the album. Rivers' vocal melody and rhythm on "Miss. Sweeney" is one of the more interesting vocal portions of the cd IMO and "Pig" is just a fantastic song.
But again, I really enjoyed reading the review and glad that Weezer actually sounds like they're having fun again.
