You Thought I Dropped a Dud in Your Face

Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) Alone: Home RecordingsI have to admit, I've been wildly indifferent to Weezer not soon after their debut came out. That album was a blue light special in a shop full of gangsta (c)rap and pop trifles (literally - working at Best Buy at the time, we fought often about which album we would play - Weezer was always my pick). I don't listen to it often, but when I "rediscover" it, I'm always genuinely excited (Say It Ain't So and My Name is Jonas are stellar). I'm one of those few that found Pinkerton to be less than thrilling (although I've been meaning to revisit).

Nonetheless, I'm especially intrigued by the release of Rivers Cuomo's demos, Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo.

including a big chunk of songs from the scrapped sequel to The Blue Album, Songs from the Black Hole
That may be enough to get a download out of me. It was released this week.
