hahhaha, I don't read reviews of bands I like until I've heard the album.
I got my email telling me the CD is on the way. I'm looking forward to it. Wish I was going to London at the weekend.

They just surprise "dropped" a very faithful covers album, "Teal", a month before they're next proper album "black", comes out. I've listened to most of it. It's like Africa, one listen and you're done type of stuff.
I assume they know what they're doing.

Those Bryan Ferry albums.

and when an artist is a singer rather than a songwriter.

Yer man from Yo LaTengo's lo-fi Prince covers album is good but I would think that .

Their ability to mimic the originals is commendable if completely redundant. I enjoyed it insofar as I enjoy the originals and they added a little extra distortion here and there. Also I like River's voice.

They'll cover the blue album next.

Rememeber those pointless Top of the Pops records that didn't have the original versions of the songs? That Weezer covers one is like a awful version of those.
