“Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo”

How did some of these songs never get a proper release on a studio album?!  The songs on this compilation would dwarf most of the recent Weezer output, easily.  The love and longing for a few of these tracks easily push a Weezer diehard to overrate this album (myself included… I tried to justify an A-rating), but the truth is that the meat in the middle, while special, does not make the rest an automatic A.

Grade: B+

Favorite Track: Longtime Sunshine

Second Favorite: Blast Off!
