The Good Life: The Best of The Week

I don’t think I’m speaking out of turn when I say that Weezer felt out of touch with their own sound until they dropped their latest release, (White Album). A true return to form, they’ll rock out those tunes alongside old favorites in front of their trademark winged W logo…

Now the band is back with a more mature sound on their latest, Goodness…
