One those albums where nearly every track is a 10, the chord progressions are really cool and it's just a nice album to sink into. Very special. I love how loose and heartfelt it is.

Personal and brooding, the side of Rivers that we never quite got after the band's reformation. Heavy-hitting yet graceful and the band's truest masterpiece (just barely more than its predecessor)

Tongue in cheek songs that manage to still cut deep and carry their own kind of awkwardly tender emotional weight.

When I first had a glimpse on this record I thought It would be one of those that would really impress me. It didn't, It didn't at all, I guess Weezer isn't for me.

From Aaron98
I go back and fourth either liking this or the blue album more. This definitely has less polish than the blue album, but gosh dang, this album just screams raw emotion. "Tired of Sex" is such a good opener, and "The Good Life" is just my favorite Weezer song. But Weezer will never top their first two albums, and that's okay, cause the white album is honestly really good. It's okay for bands to change sounds from album to album, it's honestly what band's should do. It doesn't mean it always hits, the Green Album and basically everything after it is just a slap in the face. Dis album's still a classic though, den outta den.

From Brad1770
The legendary 'Pinkerton' has taken on a life of it's own as the years have ticked by yet strip away the hyperbola and your left with a great album that is the perfect follow up to their mega debut

If 'Blue' was the slap to the face then 'Pinkerton' is the punch to the gut

I think this album is underappreciated and deserves better. The good life is my favourite song by Weezer.

From pknitro
Perhaps the album I've listened to the most in my life. Pinkerton has grown on me like no other album, and is my personal favorite Weezer album. I think The Blue Album is as good as Pinkerton, completely tied really. But Pinkerton has so much great emotion that it's become a classic for not only me, but the entire music world in general.

Favorite tracks: Tired of Sex, Across The Sea, The Good Life, El Scorcho, Pink Triangle, Butterfly
