Our latest iTunes Pass comes from longtime alt-anthem band Weezer. If you buy the iTunes Pass, you'll get the group's forthcoming Raditude album when it's available on November 3, plus videos, live tracks, remixes, bonus tracks, and more before and after the album's release.

Seems cool, but I hope it has all the songs from the deluxe edition as well.

I haven't listened to any samples but do enjoy the first single from it very much. The chorus is pure Weezer-confection.

By the way, i picked up The Red Album awhile back and it's pretty damn good. Gets off to a rockin' start but kinda' starts to drag after awhile though. But overall... good stuff. And now i'm all caught up, and ready for some Raditude!

Weezer's playing the The Rave, in Milwaukee, on December 3rd for the first time since '01!!! Oh wow, Weezer in a club environment is one of my favorite things in life (last time they played one in my vicinity was the Aragon way back in May '05). Cheers, guys!

I'd love to go to the show in Boston, but $45.50 per ticket is a little lot out of my unemployed price range.

It's not too shabby. But I think I liked the Red album better.  But it was totally worth getting the iTunes pass for the MGMT/Lady Gaga medly as well as a few alternate versions of songs.
Title: Re: Weezer's RADITUDE
Post by: TeamRAD on November 05, 2009, 01:56:40 PM

This didn't "wow" me like the RED album did w/ its diversity, but the album's tongue is firmly planted into its cheek w/ such tracks as "I'm Your Daddy" and "In the Mall". The first single is obviously the standout track, and I personally think it's one of the best songs Rivers has ever written. That chorus is beyond infecttious, and the song overall does what Weezer excels at, lifting up your spirits. I can't wait to sing and dance to that next month! And the B-sides, they're great as always. I could attest "Get Me Some" is a B-side from the Maladroit sessions, and Underdogs is just super-sweet.

From the results, it sounds like the guys had a lot of fun w/ it.  *thumbs way up*

The "Cold Dark World" (Rivers Cuomo Vocals Version) is pretty good, but I think I like the original version better with Shriner singing.

I just need to track down the 2 Japanese bonus tracks to satisfy my OCD...   :D

Post by: dignan on November 06, 2009, 03:59:22 AM
I really like Raditude.  I wasn't a huge fan of the Red album, actually.  "I Want You To," "I'm Your Daddy," "Put Me Back Together," and "I Don't Want To Let You Go" are the standouts for me.

yeah I agree with all of this.

I hate to give the haters any ground but I think it's their weakest album by far, "I Want You To" and "Put me back together" are really the only tracks that gave me the instant goofy grin than I expect from Weezer, they're both REALLY good though so I'm happy to let everything else grow on me.

Post by: dignan on November 06, 2009, 06:36:32 AM
I tend to love all the odd-numbered Weezer albums and am "eh" about the even-numbered ones. So I'll probably not like whatever their next one is.
Title: Re: Weezer's RADITUDE
Post by: TeamRAD on November 09, 2009, 09:32:32 AM

...and I tend to like them all, sans Make Believe. I mean, "Hold Me", really? :D

Howbeit, I do hold the BLUE album in higher esteem than the rest as I all out worship it.

Title: Re: Weezer's RADITUDE
Post by: dignan on November 10, 2009, 04:08:40 AM
Oh yeah, Blue album is my favorite still.  I listened to all their albums the other day, to reevaulate them.  I found I liked Maladroit more than I remembered, although my original feeling on it (that I'm afraid it's just too darn loud) still holds up.  I do like a lot of Make Believe, particularly This Is Such A Pity and The Other Way.  Still don't like the Red album.  And Raditude is growing on me very quickly.

Of course Maladroit is too damn loud, it's their rock album!    :)

Indeed, Scott. Indeed...

:)

In the entire Weezer catalog, "Hold Me" just seems so out-of-place (even w/ Pinkerton in mind), and it makes me chuckle regardless. It's such a downer as a whole, and just swallowed all the energy out of the Aragon when they debuted it back in '05 (the energy came soaring back when they went into my all-time favorite Weezer song "The Good Life").

3 weeks from today is the big Milwaukee show.... *starts humming "The Good Life" & shakes his booty"*

Curse you!

The fact I'm seeing both Pavement and Pixies in March is the only thing easing my pain.  REALLY hope they tour here next year, I'd happily fly interstate if they don't come to my city, hell I'd probably fly interstate even if they do just to see them twice.
Title: Re: Weezer's RADITUDE
Post by: TeamRAD on November 12, 2009, 07:13:58 AM

...and Scott, I'm seeing the Pixies next Thursday. 

What's extra special about this tour is the fact they're playing clubs, a first since their very short club tour before the release of Make Believe. It's their first stop at my home club in nearly a decade. It's most definitely a wonderful Christmas gift, and I hope they make it your way next year!  :)

Weezer Cancels Tour After Bus Crash In Upstate NY (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091207/ap_on_en_mu/us_people_weezer)

Quote from: Associated Press
Weezer has canceled the rest of its December tour after the lead singer was injured in a bus crash in New York.

Rivers Cuomo and band assistant Sarah Kim suffered minor injuries when the group's tour bus skidded on ice, struck a guide rail and slid into a ditch Sunday morning.

Cuomo and Kim were hospitalized after the accident in the upstate New York town of Glen. That's about 40 miles west of Albany. They were traveling to a show in Boston.

Cuomo's condition isn't clear.

A message on the band's Web site says Weezer is canceling the rest of its Raditude tour and will try to reschedule those dates.

Publicist Jim Merlis says he won't comment on the crash.

Total bummer, although it sounds like everyone is okay. So that's a good thing. My show was like, the second week of January though... so there might still be some hope for me. Anyway, there's a message and some photos of the crash up on their website.

I got an extra copy of the 7 inch today.  If anyone can score a copy of The Get Up Kids EP at Record Store Day for me I'll gladly pass along the 7 inch and a RT gift certif.

Nevermind! I got one!

But if anyone is interested in the Weezer 7 inch let me know.
