I guess some scientists were getting stoned and wanted to see a Weezer and Dinosaur Jr. crossover.
The Good Life should add “Missing” to their name, as singer Tim Kasher’s lyrics portray him as an old rocker who misses the limelight. Sorry homie, the light fades, you get a job at Home Depot and just waste away, welcome to the real world, ya dildo. “Holy Shit” should be their pop-punk single and only play it in Hot Topics and Tilly’s. It’s just so much angst for a 40-year-old front man.
All in all, the album is serviceable for wallowing in your lost youth while slopping down a pint of Ben n Jerry’s. I’d probably listen again, but I’m a Toys-R-Us kid who’s never grown up.
