Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending January 16)

With falling temperatures and actual snow on the ground (albeit only briefly before the melt), it's time for fun winter games. But before you head outside this weekend, be sure to check out the albums to come on my Upcoming Releases page!

Weezer is a band that just won't quit. They got some praise for their first and second albums, Weezer (Blue Album) and Pinkerton, which remain my two favorites of their repertoire, but there hasn't been as much love for their work since. Many see them as a band who, 1) won't grow up and 2) aren't living up to their potential. This week, they announced their 10th album, returning to their habit of self-titled releases; this one will be referred to as the White Album. Judging by the tracks' names, they won't shake the claims of immaturity anytime soon, but their has been some cautious praise for their most recent singles, so it may be a return to form. The album is set to be released on April 1, no foolin'.
