i love the production on pinkerton. listening to it always brings back a lot of memories.

09-14-2007, 04:31 PM
yeah that's pretty much how i feel. pinkerton and the blue album just bring back memories and are both till fun to listen to maybe like once a year if that. i never got anything past the blue album. Stinkypoo how could you say you like those two, but don't remember the green album or another new one? wouldn't they be fresher in your mem... nevermind

maybe it's like how people block out painful memories....

um pinocchio pinkerton came out after the blue album...

both are nice albums but it's a little soured because of how jerky the band members are these days. especially rivers.

09-14-2007, 11:08 PM
did it? bummer, i think i bought it right before the blue album. i really can't remember though.

first two weezer albums rule. i was half alseep in a car and someone put on "pinkerton" and it sounded perfect. total middle school music, like the smiths.

that being said, i don't know if i'd publicly declare my affinity for weezer...but maybe i would.

i remember when i thought i was cooler than everyone else because i liked weezer when i was 4.

and when i say liked, i mean knew what color the cd was and what track number buddy holly was.

The blue album and Pinkerton are absolutely wonderful. I've been disappointed by all of their work since except: MALADROIT. I want to put in a plug for this underappreciated album. I hated the green album and almost didn't buy Maladroit. I barely even heard about Maladroit, and I haven't even heard much about it since. But it is quite an interesting and sonically powerful record. "Dope Nose", "Slave", and "Love Explosion" are tasty as hell. It reminds me of Prince and Boston and the Apples in Stereo all jamming together. I was surprised, and I remain surprised, and it's the only post-Pinkerton weezer album that I still listen to regularly.

I thought I was relatively alone in this but I just looked at it on Amazon (here) (http://www.amazon.com/Maladroit-Weezer/dp/B000065BW8)and customers have rated it 4 stars out of 5 in 370 reviews. So for what that's worth as confirmation.... rock on.

I actually suprised at the unanimous appreciation for the first two albums.
I agree, everything after was disappointing.
Rivers had all the makings of the next great songwriter, but then seemed to take the easy way.
I think if he really challenged himself, he could put out another good LP.
I heard he quit making music after Pinkerton and went back to school... Harvard.
I'm not sure what he planned to do with the degree. I think it was English.
Then he put out the green album, right? I can't remember.
All I know is when they came out, I was way into metal, industrial and rave and it wasn't vey cool to like Weezer. A jock-ish co-worker of mine at a summer job gave me a copy of the blue album and I fell in love with it and kept it a secret from all of my friends.
I was a closted Weezer fan.

well rivers is like some really stoical buddhist now, but that doesn't really excuse hom from being a jerk to the other bandmates

maladroit's a solid record i concur. i think it's the track "space rock" that really packs a wollop for me. and if you like it you can buy it used for the change you find under your sofa cushions it's so cheap.

and i think i may be the only one i know who enjoys the green album...i really have good taste in music though, i swear :D

Lol, I used to be so obsessed with Weezer in, like... 5th grade. Then I grew some braincells, but I'll admit that I still maintain a weird kind of affection for The Blue Album and Pinkerton just because I liked them so much once, even though I don't like them anymore. But yeah, all their other stuff Green album and onward just sucks.

09-17-2007, 06:06 PM
what do you mean grew some brain cells? they're a really good bunch of musicians. and those albums are still great. don't second guess your 12 year old tastes.
