604. Weezer - pinkerton

I remember going to Best Buy with Doug when this came out and him asking me to front him the money for this cd - I didn't and feel bad to this day. He eventually got it, and we heard it together later that day, but still that was sort of mean of me. Sorry Doug. Pinkerton, a short record by many standards, is a perfect exercise in pop rock smart ass angst. It's heavier than the blue album, it's lyrics have a greater bite and in all is a better record. The commercial failure of the disc postponned its follow up indefinitely, with Rivers putting the band on hold... luckily they got back together five years later.

9.4 out of 10

Do it to me every time"
