You know that Weezer has got to have some tracks hidden away that didn't make the cut when it came to one album or another. Thankfully they weren't too shy about sharing some of the ones that made it to the cutting room floor. Death To False Metal collects 11 previously unreleased tracks from throughout Weezer's career. They span a vast period of time from the very beginning of their career in the early 90s right up to the present day. The album opens with "Turning Up the Radio," which is the result of Rivers Cuomo's YouTube songwriting project Let's Write a Sawng. It's a surprisingly cohesive collection of material for a band that has been around as long as Weezer. Originally released in 2010, this reissue gives the album the deluxe treatment it deserves.
