Re: I probably never will
Well yeah it's obviously nothing essential. They clearly just made this for fun to play into the "weezer covers africa" meme, all the songs play it pretty faithful to the originals so just look at the tracklisting and imagine Cuomo singing those songs and you pretty much know what this record sounds like (he sounds pretty close to the original vocals too on some songs). They mostly chose what some might categorise as yacht-rock kind of songs so "teal" is appropriate (though personally I would call the genre of this albums "Jack-FM-core").
>>Wasn't he celibate and/or vocally anti-sex for several years? Or am I thinking of someone else?
I think you might be thinking of someone else, cus that doesn't ring any bells for me. I could be wrong though, I'm far from a weezer expert.
Weezer are inconsistent as hell, but as perhaps the only rock/power-pop bands still around with mainstream appeal I'm happy that they've had such surprising longevity.
