this is beginning to hurt... [May. 15th, 2001|01:06 pm]

Kareem and I were on a mission last night... Tower Records was having a midnight sale, where they sold all of the new releases coming out today (Tuesday). Kareem was there for Tool and MegaDeth, whereas I was there for Weezer.

Considering the fact that Weezer was long considered to have been broken up, the mere existence of this album is enough to make me happy. So joy. The line was extraordinarily long, stretching quite a ways along the Drag.

Bored as hell, I made some broad stereotypes based on shoe-type:

converse= Weezer
combat boots= Tool
sandals= REM

Judging from the shoe distribution, then, I'd have to say that most folks were there for Tool, followed by Weezer.

So how's the album? Solid so far. I've only listened to it twice as of yet, though, so it's too early too tell. I think it's going to be one of those albums you have to sink into, like Kid A or Apollo I8 or somesuch.

welll, the Tool album is pretty sweet. however, i kinda wish they had gone in a new direction, after six years to think about it. granted, lateralus is more epic, with longer songs, but the length seems to be the only thing different about this album. more of the same, but luckily "the same" is pretty fucking good. As to weezer, what i have heard from the green album is...ok. i am extremely partial to "pinkerton" as opposed to the blue album (hehe), so i suppose that reveals why i am not so into the hardrock stuff from green. besides, my music listening lately is wholly dominated by my illicit copy of the next radiohead album, "Amnesiac" swwwweet. as to megadeth, why isnt dave mustaine dead?

weezer album

hey, sorry to burst your bubble, but mine was serverly bust when i heard the new weezer, only 28 minutes, and 2 decent, that's decent, not good, songs. I was so disappointed. i really like weezer, but that new one...well, it sucked major ass. the new Tool on the other hand, well, lets just say it rocked! (so did the new depeche mode, if you're into them!!)
