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.

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.

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.

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

This was a much grittier, personal effort than their Blue Album, which I also adore. But I really related to the hearty guitar outbursts between the diarised-style lyrics that seemed not only cathartic to Cuomo but also to the young adult that I was at the time of its release. A banging album, slightly out of tune, but fully expressive. I also love the fact that the music officionados out there have had to allow a decade or more to pass for this album to register in regards to its awesomeness. Not an immediate classic to the critics but it certainly was to me.

This is by far my favorite Weezer album because it is the one with the most soul in it. You can really feel the pain and emotions that Rivers was feeling at the time. No song stands out more than the others, but the album has a great flow and is very consistent. It takes a few spins before you can really enjoy it, but this album is definitely worth a listen!

Raw, emotional rock music from a master songwriter.
