the best cd you will ever purchase,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pinkerton (Audio CD)
I have owned this cd for years and it dosent tire with age. This album is one of the most heartfelt, peverse and gloriously hook laden i have ever listened to. Unlike the first album (self titiled "weezer" refered to as the "blue album")this sophmore record envokes raw emotion like never before. The CD basically runs in the order written and showcases the inner turmoil of singer/songwriter, Rivers Cuomo. Under this geeky and romantic exterior, you come to realsise that there is a dark and peverse underbelly, as heard in "across the sea", a song about the relationship between singer/fan, which is not altogether innocent. "The good life" shows a longing to get back to society and normality. "getchoo" is a heartrendering song about the end of a relationship. Basically, one cannot pick a highlight from this album as each indervidual song has its own unic qualities. No one song sounds the same but each contains truthfull lyrics and grinding guitars, melodic bass lines and high quality vocals all of which blend together to make the listner sit up and pay attention.
