“Maybe it’s me”, I wrote in my notes. That’s definitely one possible explanation for why I feel how I do about this album. “Maybe it’s me”. Maybe I’m not in the right headspace for the album at the current time when I’ve chosen to listen to it. Maybe if I come back to it again later I’ll change my mind about it. Maybe if I listen to it multiple times it’ll grow on me and I’ll come around to it. Or maybe there’s ... read more

Listening to OK Human was a bit of a strange journey for me. For the first three tracks, I was very ready to call this album a 7 and move on. Those songs are fine, not super impressive but I appreciate what the band was going for with them. What’s so strange about that is that the last time I had that reaction was with The White Album, and both that and this have been consistently praised by everyone else while other recent Weezer albums are generally looked down upon, but those are the ... read more
