Spring was... mediocre. It was cheesy, sometimes boring and generally played it too safe. This album sees Weezer go in a much heavier direction, in a similar vain to 'Van Weezer'. Except here, it's pulled off a lot better, leading to each song being good in its own right.
I won't go over each song, but I will mention that 'Thank You and Good Night' is one of Weezer's best closing tracks in years. It's also one of the heaviest songs on the record.
Some tracks were a tad formulaic, and I hate how Cuomoville reminded me of 'Scatman's World', but overall this was a very strong EP and I hope Weezer continues down this path.
BEST TRACKS: Records, The Opposite Of Me, What's The Good of Being Good, Thank You and Good Night
