Rivers Cuomo Seems to Regret That Weezer Released ‘Too Much’ Music
But imagine traveling to the late '90s and telling a Weezer fan — one pining for any new Weezer music after Cuomo all but disappeared from 1997 to 2000 — that Weezer would eventually release so much material the singer would perhaps regret it.
Asked about Weezer's discography, per Consequence, Cuomo says, "I think, if I were to go back and plan out an ideal artist's career, I don't know — maybe there's too much quantity" among Weezer releases.

The 52-year-old Weezer singer continues, "Maybe the whole thing would be more impactful if we could go back in time and just release the very best stuff. Cherry-pick and release it in a very strategic way."
Cuomo adds, however, that "hindsight is 20/20." Still, he hopes "future generations will sort it all out, and they'll focus on the best stuff."
Maybe Cuomo is turning over a new leaf. (Did 2002's Maladroit really need to exist?) He also says he now "want[s] to listen and see where [the fans'] heads are at, and what they're reacting to" since "sometimes it's not exactly where I would have gone."
