or 4 installments of $4.75 by Afterpay More info

The band’s sophomore album that gained a cult following and influenced multiple rock acts today – Pinkerton is now available reissued on 120g vinyl with standard jacket and 12×12 insert. Limited vinyl LP pressing includes 12 x 12 insert. Pinkerton is the second studio album by band Weezer, released on September 24, 1996. After abandoning plans for a rock opera titled Songs from the Black Hole, Weezer recorded Pinkerton between songwriter Rivers Cuomo’s terms at Harvard University, where he wrote much of the album. To better capture their live sound, Weezer produced Pinkerton themselves, creating a darker, more abrasive album than their 1994 self-titled debut.

Description

Limited vinyl LP pressing includes 12 x 12 insert. Pinkerton is the second studio album by band Weezer, released on September 24, 1996. After abandoning plans for a rock opera titled Songs from the Black Hole, Weezer recorded Pinkerton between songwriter Rivers Cuomo’s terms at Harvard University, where he wrote much of the album. To better capture their live sound, Weezer produced Pinkerton themselves, creating a darker, more abrasive album than their 1994 self-titled debut. Cuomo’s lyrics express disillusionment with the rock lifestyle; the album is named after the character BF Pinkerton from Giacomo Puccini’s 1904 opera Madama Butterfly, whom Cuomo described as an “asshole American sailor similar to a touring rock star”. Like the opera, the album contains references to Japanese culture.After wooing teenage girls across America with its infectious debut record, Weezer appears to be getting more serious with this follow-up. PINKERTON still features immensely catchy tunes and the band’s trademark crunchy guitars, but Weezer is now exuding more mature emotions within its songs. The lads have eschewed their preppy bowl cuts for a more lanky style, and they’ve written songs about being jaded and depressed (“Tired Of Sex” and “Why Bother”). Their full guitar sound is no longer an innocent roar; there is a new, burning quality to it. But Weezer hasn’t completely deserted its sugary tendencies–“Falling For You” and “Across The Sea” (about a teenage fan in Japan) are songs to melt hearts with.
