New Weezer: A Return To Form

So, Weezer have just posted the lead single from their forthcoming self titled "red album", and it sounds pretty damn good. Being that we (along with, oh, everyone else) were highly disappointed in Make Believe, we really are hoping that this go around is a bit better. If the single is any indication, we may be in for some "Pork and Beans" still has the big, crunchtastic riffs that have come to dominate the band's sound of late, but there are also sweet sounding pianos, all the backing vocals you could want, and some nice acoustic guitars. Sure, it sounds like Weezer, what do you expect? But, it's got soul: something that the band had been lately lacking.
