The topic of a bunch of bands covering weezer could be very volatile. This album is an excellent example of this. There are some excellent tracks on this album which really show that weezer songs lend themselves amazingly to all sorts of rock genres. Mycomplex's cover of tired of sex, and the Impossible's The good life are very creative. I also reccomend Mock Orange's Only in dreams, Midtown's susanne, and Affinity's my name is Jonas.
However, there are also tracks on this album that make you want to grab the nearest sharpened pencil and commit hari-kari with it just to hear what it's like if you take a perfectly good weezer track, strip it of any soul it had, kick all the talent out of it, mix it in a garbage can with trite meaninglessness and reproduce it void of everything good. Further Seems Forever, Christopher John, The Stereo.... shame on all of you. I hope you cry yourselves to sleep at night knowing that instead of taking a song and doing something creative or valuable with it you have just played it soullessly and whined out the lyrics. If i wanted to hear no musical talent and crying i would turn on R&B. Leave emo out of this you talentless hacks.
I recommend buying this album if you are into the math rock scene, or have a little punk blood running in your veins. Just recognize there will be a few tracks you will skip. If you want to listen to emo, there is enough saves the day or get up kids albums for you to buy to keep you happy for years bopping up and down with your pigtails and retro clothes you payed to much for. Leave my weezer alone.
