Weezer – Pinkerton (Geffen, 1996)

weenkertonNick: strange name.

it’s the old story.

nothing new, nothing I haven’t heard many times before.

it’s good but….

{throws arms up in the air}

they’re like hundreds of other bands.

anything else you can add?

ehh… no.

it’s nice and slightly interesting but it’s in no way original.

also it’s quite relentless, apart from the last one it’s just banging on and on, same level, same pace.

now, mind you I wasn’t in the right mood for that music, if you know what I mean.

The readers of Rolling Stone magazine voted this the second worst album of 1996. That’s how good it is.

  1. Sadly, this is one of my favourite albums in the whole world ever. I think maybe you have to hear it at least twice. Play it again!

  2. It is certainly a grower. It’s only a matter of time before you’re listening to it really loud and writhing around.

  3. Ruan, in 2002 Rolling Stone readers voted it as the 16th greatest album of all-time, and then in 2004 Rolling Stone gave the album a NEW review, gave it five stars out of five, and added it to the Rolling Stone Hall of Fame

    This proves that:

    a) this album is the biggest grower of all time
    b) it was ahead of its time and is only appreciated fully in retrospect.
    c) Rolling Stone are complete and utter morons that flip their viewpoints as required to stay in tune with the coolkids.
