While I was at Target getting a cheap phone for backup, I checked the music aisle to see if they had Rivers’ new release. As luck would have it, they had one copy of Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo. It’s a collection of his recordings from 92-07. I’ve heard a few of these tracks before. “Blast Off!” and “Longtime Sunshine” are two of my favorites songs written by Rivers. Any fan of Weezer should go get this album. And I’m not talking about buying it off iTunes. I’m saying you should go buy the CD. The jacket contains short writings by Rivers that tells the background and origin of each song.
