10/10 Nick Smith Customer review, 11th March 2014

Rivers always stated Pinkerton was a hard record to write, especially after the success of their self titled classic in 1994. Truth be told the band were unhappy with the results, fans the world over would disagree and often cite this record as their swan song. Years later it is revered as a classic and rightly so. The songs are so well written you simply cannot skip the record at any point, it the perfect example of a "difficult second album", few artists can achieve what Weezer did with their debut albums successor...an achievement on all counts. Kicking off with Tired of Sex the angst and loudness hits you, no longer are the band happy to play summery "We love the Beach Boys" they opt for the noise Nirvana would be worshipped for on In Utero and the delivery of the lyrics are almost bitter. Getchoo continues this theme with early Sub Pop influence and noisy Radiohead guitar tones, the backing harmonies are thrown at you as the track builds...it's great. Why Bother is a ripper, harnessing the bands urgency and punchy playing style - it makes you want to pick up your guitar due to its simplicity but song writing this good doesn't come that easy "Why bother, it's gonna hurt me, it's gonna kill when you desert me, this happened to me twice before, it won't happen to me anymore" Cuomo sings these lyrics with every ounce of honesty, you really feel they are writing from experiences. You work your way through to The Good Life and you immediately associate with the punk overtones and charm of the lyrics, simple but effective the song writing is nothing short of genius. Pink Triangle is one of my faves on this scorcher of a record, the noise of the guitars is astounding and they lose no gusto by this point, the songs just keep coming and their overall love for all genres is the bands advantage over other acts of the time...this track has everything. Few bands could achieve what Weezer did with this record, if you like classic 90s Sub Pop it's for you.
