Agreed, though IMO they peaked on their first album.

What bothers me about Weezer is that I KNOW they still can make the kind of songs they made in the past, it wasn't a fluke, they weren't a one hit wonder ya know? they had talent but they seem to chose the route of making mainstream hits..

which i get, one crappy hit single that gets air play will get them more money than a good song that's unpopular..

like you i do think the blue album is their best work but pinkerton has 'Across the sea' which is probably my fav weezer song.

Forced Entry could have headlined shows here over almost any of the famous Seattle bands before Nevermind was released. Yet most of you have never heard of them






My Sister's Machine never made it out of here either, another headline act before the stupid music press decided that Seattle was worth some money to them

I like them both but my heart belongs to Pinkerton. I don't hate the green album but I haven't bought anything they've put out past that.

I think the biggest thing stopping Weezer from duplicating that level of success is the fact that Rivers Cuomo just doesn't want to get that personal again. He was dealing with physical pain from surgery, being bipolar, feeling lonely and disillusioned with the rock star life etc etc, and that resulted in some really emotional material.

Good point, i never thought of it like that their later work does seem very unpersonal.

Would have liked another Sneaker Pimps album led by Kelli Dayton. Her vocals pretty much defined the band's sound so it didn't make much sense dumping her.

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.
