Weezer - Pinkerton (MCA)
Another fine pop album from Weezer, with enough alternative influences
(the Pixies in particular) to make it interesting.
Thankfully there's no carbon copy of the OO-WEE-OO song (Buddy
Holly), but there are some songs that are almost as catchy
on this album, especially new single El Scorcho.
The spooky thing about this album is how much like the Frank and
Walters Weezer sound a lot of the time. They've hardly heard
the Cork lads all the way over there in Americay, have they?
