Regardless of whether or not it's supposed to be ironic...

It turns out the glimmer of hope that Weezer's "Pork and Beans" offered for their new LP was all for naught. The Red Album pretty much sucks.

The only other songs off the record that pack anywhere near the punch of its killer first single are the crazy, Queenesque, "Greatest Man That Ever Lived" - and that's mostly just because I find their experimentation in the multi-part epic to be laudable, if uneven - and "Dreamin,'" which has some classic Weezer chord progressions, but fails to excite.

Maybe I'll come around somehow, but I'm finally joining countless other former diehard fans in declaring - hard as it is to say - that the Weez has lost "it."
