Weezer – Weezer (blue)
After Maladroit, folks recommended this and Pinkerton. I know a lot of songs here, having heard others’ copies repeatedly. Definitely of its time, there’s a reason the hits were hits – they’re different and interesting but still Weezer. Many of the other tracks have that 90s four-chord big crunchy guitar sound that quickly starts to sound very similar. They definitely have a Beach Boys-like quality, as well. I quite liked this, but I’d have liked it more twenty years ago.
