Never even noticed the similar trajectory both bands took in terms of popular opinion until now! Weezer fans, if you ever need someone to talk to...

Where does Dig Down rank on the Weezer-scale?

Pork and Beans is great .

Plus, Weezer have been on form of late - White is easily my favourite album of theirs.

Ehh, Iíll respect the opinion but if you think Pork and Beans is great I donít think thereís any room to complain about Mattís lyrics (not saying that you have, more of a general statement)

Weezer are hardly renowned for the depth of their lyrics though, are they? The difference is while their lyrics are knowingly light and breezy, Matt's lyrics come across as actually being serious despite them being complete and utter nonsense to embarrassing ends.

Weezer are way too self aware (EWBAIT and White Album are solid tho) and Muse are everything but

Self-awareness trumps ignorance or indifference every time. I'd say Weezer are more self-referential or self-deprecating, sometimes to an irritating extent. Plus, Muse never have and never will write tunes like Buddy Holly, Dope Nose or Endless Bummer. They're not good enough songwriters.

I hold many unpopular opinions of Muse, one of which is that they would benefit from just a teeny, tiny smidge of self-awareness. I think Panic Station is an example of them doing it well. But, as will be in scripted on my tombstone, that's just my opinion.

They always have been self-aware, actually. In both good and bad times.

White Album might be better than Blue Album / Pinkerton. EWBAITE is great too. New album though is merely pleasant. Too much atmosphere, not enough substance.

Oh Muse, yeah I think Weezer are still more unpredictable quality wise. Where is the Muse version of Beverly Hills?

Do you want the full list? Muse were pumping out stinkers even at their peak.

You may be right. If so, I think it makes their Queen influences more appropriate. Queen really found that balance between respectable rock band while also being a ton of fun. Still, I think there's a decent amount of genuineness in their lyrics. I can imagine Matt writing "The fat cat's had a heart attack" and thinking it was some real good takedown.

It was more of a rhetorical question. I doubt you'll convince me Muse have done anything quite that shamelessly simplistic and commercial.

At least not without still being good.
