Feels Like Summer (Acoustic) - Single Tracklist:
The original version was bad, but this is somehow even worse. I wish Weezer would stop trying to make this song happen. It bombed live at Boston Calling, and this continues a weird feud between Rivers Cuomo and his band's fanbase. He seems hell-bent on making mediocre pop rock while the demand is for genuine punk rock.
This is roughly 120% more palatable than the original Panic! At the Douche-co mix. They seem to have a knack for releasing something over-polished then coming back through and bringing it back to Earth. Imagine how great Weezer would sound if they wrote sugar pop songs and played them with jagged punk rock guitars? Oh wait...
Enough with the poppy stuff, Rivers! Get back to those Blue/Pinkerton roots, and to hell with the mainstream. Where is the authenticity? I love Weezer, but this sounds like a Katy Perry cover.
