This along with the Blue Album make up Weezer's masterpieces. I wish Songs From The Black Hole was an official release.

Pinkerton is one of the best expression of human emotion I've ever heard. It's deceptively simple sound helps to ease the listener in, while revealing a conceptual acknowledgment of hypocrisy and sexual frustration upon repeated listens. I love that Cuomo understands that his sexual and romantic failure is his fault. His false expectations, exemplified in the track "Pink Triangle", lead to his destiny to repeat his tragedy. Every song is catchy and meaningful, specifically "Across the Sea", which is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

Excellent second album. I can't figure out whether it's this or the debut I like more. Full of punchy rock'n'roll, it's full of energy and the it's possibly even more instant than the first record. Good album.

Great lyrics and structure overall but very samey melodically.

Those with ears more attuned to melody will get bored with this album quickly.

Weezer's best album by a landslide. The second half (Across the Sea, onwards) is so strong it's insane, at least compared to the first 4 tracks which are the weakest on the album, albeit still very good. Pink Triangle fading into Falling for You (my favorite from the record) is one of my favorite moments.

I don't really get the love for this album. Ever the more well known songs from this album do very little for me. I'll give it another listen some time.

Rivers Cuomo exposes himself and allows to see into his insecurities through his music, and it creates one of the greatest musical experiences ever.

An EP with those first five songs would be PERFECT.
