EDITORS’ NOTES

Death to False Metal is a collection of unreleased songs from the band’s fifteen-year career on a major label. How songs as catchy as “Turning Up the Radio,” “I Don’t Want Your Loving” and “Blowin’ My Stack” ever landed on the cutting room floor is a question worth asking. This is hardly an album of inferior outtakes, but more like a lost album coming to light. “Losing My Mind” is a campfire tune where the singer’s life is going down the drain. “Everyone” cranks it up towards the metal end of the spectrum, while “I’m a Robot” bops along with a sprightly and aggressive Ben Folds Five-type bounce and lyrics that once again trend darker than the day. “Trampoline” features the Weezer wall of guitar and some great harmonies. “Odd Couple” and “Autopilot” crunch with new-wave guitar drives and more lyrics that find Rivers Cuomo going off the deep end. Diane Warren’s “Unbreak My Heart” (a hit for Toni Braxton) is given the Weezer once-over and turned into another punk-pop hit.
