What do you know -- there's still life in the old Weezer after all.
All right, just when I completely gave up all hope that Weezer would ever again write a song that I'd dig -- seriously, I just had a conversation yesterday with a friend of mine in which I asserted that Weezer just needed to hang it up already -- Rivers Cuomo goes and pens another ode to worthy of affection. Friends, behold the magnificent "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To," a jubilant, finger-snapping tune flush with the bombast of the act's finest moments and stripped of the feigned coolness of its most recent work. If the rest of the album is this solid, this fairweather Weezer fan may return to the fold.
