You can finally listen to the new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" a week before it's released.
To my surprise many of the so-called hipster blogs and critics have thrown high praise on this album. It could be because Ric Ocasek, who produced their "Blue" album has returned to produce this one, or perhaps it's okay to like Weezer again. Could be the music is that good.
You can decide for yourself by streaming the album over at iTunes Radio.

The new Weezer album, "Everything Will Be Alright in the End" will be out on October 7th, so I am guessing we will get a full stream of the album sometime next week. Until them the band has shared another track. This is the closest thing I have head to the "Blue Album" and it makes plenty of sense since Rick Ocasek produced that album as well. Two minutes and fourty-nine seconds of what could work as a sequel to "Buddy Holly" in spirit.
Thom Yorke is a sly guy. Last week he was teasing us by posting a short video of mysterious, white vinyl on a turntable. This led many to speculate that a new Radiohead album was in the cards.
That isn't what was in the cards. The cards of the day and Thom Yorke say it's time for a new Thom Yorke solo album. It's called "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" and it's available via Bit Torrent here. Thom is nice enough to give a taste of the album for free with the first track, "A Brain in a Bottle" with accompanying video as a free download. For a mere $6 you can get all 8 of the tracks.
Go forth and enjoy all the bloops, beeps and melodic moans.
I remember sitting for hours and hour playing Final Fantasy II. That's right, I said part two. Do you know why I could sit and play Final Fantasy II for hours and hours? Because you could actually play it. It was a game, with objectives.
So, my gripe: jumping a full generation ahead we have the first peek at Final Fantasy XV. Like many before it and many after Final Fantasy III there isn't as much gaming. Sure, you can put in forty, eighty or more hours on per new volume, but after playing the last few editions I felt I was watching a movie and not playing a game. I was being lulled into submission and passivity rather than the active passivity I achieve from playing most games, watching "Transformers" movies or writing blogs while sending emails while watching "Transformers" movies at 10:30p. What went wrong with this once great gaming franchise?
You may disagree with the last paragraph but when "game" gets removed from "video game" we have left the fun dome. Yeah, the Fun Dome is gone, too. Though I hear kids are getting educated there, which is probably better than what I got from my time spent there: mini golf, roller skating and batting cages. It's why I am a radio guy and not lawyer.
The trailer looks amazing but if every 5 minutes of gameplay is interrupted with over-indulgent clips, well, I just cant hang. I guess we will wait and see.
