    I just found out that EVERY song from Weezers new album "Maladroit" has just been posted online. The album is tentatively scheduled to be released mid April but Rivers Cuomo decided to put the early mixes on the web. I downloaded all of them and like all of the tracks. I think the music and lyrics here are much better than Green. Here's the URL

    Here are the remixed versions of the songs. These are the final versions.

    This is the full album? Why did they do this?

    What are the differences in the two links?

    BTW, I'm still hoping for a return to their Pinkerton sound.

    ive been following the development on this disc. it seemed every month or so they had different versions of each song on the website to check out. i wish more bands would do something like this for fans just as a payback for buying their discs. btw...the final remixes arent from the website..they are from an mp3 group

    but those are the final remixes?
    That's too bad 'cause they suck. It has little of the pop-rock sound of the green album (which wasn't really my thing anyway) and none of the creativity and introspection from Pinkerton.
    I really wanted to see Weezer take it to the next level and prove Pinkerton wasn't a fluke...however, if this is the final album my hope was all for naught.

    Yeah "they all suck.."[​IMG]
    I disagree..
    I like Pinkerton quite a bit but when Matt Sharp left the band their sound changed, he was a HUGE part of the Weezer sound. These new songs have a more raw straight forward rock sound similar to Pinkerton, did you even bother to listen to them? and if you did was it more than the first 3 seconds of each song? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but if you like Weezer music this is more of the same, no less...

    Of course I listened to them! Weezer is one of my favorite active bands...I even gave these songs the benefit of doubt.

    very little of what Weezer does well occurs in these new songs. The raw sound you speak of masks what made Weezer weezer.

    Pinkerton was one album of their catalog! The Blue album is highly polished, as is the Green record.

    And Rivers Cuomo has since practically disowned Pinkerton and said that he was embarassed by it.

    To take that album as the high point in their career and hold them to that standard, when even the band itself dislikes playing the songs, is unreasonable.

    I liked most of the songs there.

    I do miss the backing vocals that were so very interesting on the Green album: oh baby, hip hip, etc.

    I am a Weezer junkie, I can't think of a song that I don't like.. I have friends that really enjoyed the "blue" album but not Pinkerton because they said it was sloppy and silly sounding.. mainly due to songs like El Scorcho or Good Life due to the lyrics, those same friends like the green album except for Hash Pipe for the same reason. What I do miss is Matt's HEAVY distorted bass and background vocals. Oh well to each their own, I still can't believe we only had to wait 12 months for a new CD and I hear theres alot more songs being recorded too! =W=

    And I agree completely. The songs on Pinkerton got under my skin. I like songs fun and catchy like Weezer offered up on the green album, but when the person writing the songs obviously injects something personal, I like that extra layer that's added. I think of Pinkerton as very much like the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, a collection of great songs that happen to provide a glimpse into the ego of the mastermind behind them.
