When I initially heard Weezer, I didn’t like them that much. I listened to them when I really didn’t like rock music much, and just didn’t like their sound. But recently I have been craving hard, upbeat rock- and Weezer’s Pinkerton is a perfect rock album. The heavy bass guitar and drums in this album combine to make my perfect rock album. It’s perfect to mosh and bounce too, but it’s not overwhelming. While you can tell there are many layers to the sound, it honestly sounds quite simple. I mean that in the sense that it’s just pure and fun rock, which is hard to find.
I also really like Cuomo’s voice and lyrics. He has some pretty intense moments where his vocals are very powerful. I really like how collected his voice is throughout the album. I think his lyrics are also a highlight of this album. They’re fun, nerdy and full of personal emotion. I really like how open Cuomo is. Overall, I think this is one of the best rock albums ever. I also really like The Blue album, but I prefer Pinkerton with its harsher tone.
