    Collecting from 10 years of album offcuts, Death To False Metal will be a treasure chest for the disenchanted. [Jan 2011, p.106]

    Rivers Cuomo & co rejuvenate some long lost gems.

    It's a wonder why a few of these cuts didn't pop up before this, but as a collection of outtakes, they hold together better than some of the band's proper albums.

    The strange thing is, for all that it is all over the place, compilations of lost songs and outtakes are not supposed to hang together this well. Or be anywhere near this much fun.

An album fans have been waiting so many years to hear in its entirety.

    The lyrics are uninspired and it is easy to see why a lot of these songs didn't make it on to their respective albums, all in all, for me, someone who has been a Weezer fan for many years, it was somewhat of a let-down.

    It has literally two listeneable songs, second worst Weezer release to date and it being a compilation doesn't excuse it from being awful.It has literally two listeneable songs, second worst Weezer release to date and it being a compilation doesn't excuse it from being awful.
    The Toni Braxton cover is great, felt like old Weezer.
