Weezer – Pinkerton

22 12 2010

Listened: Thursday December 9

Pinkerton is another wonderful “soundtrack to high school” album. To this day I enjoy singing “I’m dumb, she’s a lesbian”, “Shakin’ booty, making sweet love all the night, it’s time I got back to the good life”, and “Why are you so far away from me?”

I remember being surprised when I heard this was cult album, since it hadn’t been successful the first time around and had only become loved over time when Weezer stopped making albums for a while. I’ve always loved it and thought it brilliant. I feel lucky I got to love it as a high schooler, which is I think is the perfect age for Weezer.
