    "Pink Triangle" is a great track that would fit on the Blue Album, Weezer's pop-rock opus. However, the rest of this album lacks anything worth listening too.

    Unlike the previous review, I can categorically state that it is easy to deny how great this album is. I don't get it. There's a particular strain of US guitar-led music featuring whiny voiced gents that utterly passes me by (Neutral Milk Hotel, Weezer, Girls, and there will be others). It doesn't inspire feelings of dislike, only 'this is boring'.

    Pinkerton still stands tall as a modern rock classic. [6 Nov 2010, p.51]
  2. Ultimately, the legacy Pinkerton leaves behind is it being one of the most emotional and raw albums ever made. It's an album that many can relate to, even if you're not on the same level of crazy as Rivers was back then.

    This is their Holy Bible--in other words this is an unknown quantity alright; it's Weezer's raw, emotive bastard child; and a great, brilliant, titanic blot on an often pristinely laundered back catalogue. For that reason in particular this is a thing to be cherished.
