    More Slint in the beginning, than Weezer and Pixies. Just my observation.

    I can't help but feel this song would be better if it was in a different key or just sounds off...

    a lot of people will think songs sound a like, its a personal feeling, perhaps because your ears pointed out a different part of the song, and it seems similar to your ear, but to a professionally trained ear, such as a college music instructor, they could sit down and contrast the two songs in a hundred different ways

    @idiotgirl I know what you mean, it has the same guitarsound and structure, even the drums are alike, certainly the breaks, his voice is different but it seems he's trying to sing in a same way. But I still think this is a very different song, especially the melody is completely different. I prefer the Weezersong though :p.
