I really love the first two albums, especially Pinkerton, and I know a few tracks off the green album and maybe a couple others after that. Am I missing much or was it mostly all down hill?
Naw. They really did need to write Hash Pipe. Their best song evah!!Weezer is one of the most 'they should have quit after...' bands and I do not get why. They have the baggage of their first album being a classic and then a long hiatus after a less well-received second (Rivers went to Harvard and many publications have taken the very rare step of saying they were wrong about Pinkerton - it was great too - and publishing it.)
With the exception of Make Believe, I think all of Weezer's albums have been exceptionally good.
Funny thing: it seems from what I've read nearly everyone hated Pinkerton when it came out. Sale's plummeted, critics cast it into hell. I think Rivers went into a bit of a depression after that one. About 10 years later the critics did a mea culpa and now Rolling Stone calls it one of the best 50 albums or something like that. I'm not much of a fan but I think that's gonna be my favorite. I used to hate Weezer. I think I'll dig them a lot over time. I thought the new one wasn't half bad actually.The blue album and Pinkerton were one of the deadliest one two combo punches since rubber soul and revolver.
Here's my theory why the first two are so f*cking good.I really love the first two albums, especially Pinkerton, and I know a few tracks off the green album and maybe a couple others after that. Am I missing much or was it mostly all down hill?
