Weezer Pinkerton 180g 4LP
4LP 180g Set Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, NY Features Previously Unreleased Live and Studio Tracks to Highly-Acclaimed 1996 Album!
Few albums in rock history have enjoyed as complete a critical and popular
turnaround as Weezer's Pinkerton. Though tagged a disappointment upon its 1996
release, today Pinkerton is considered one of the most influential and important
albums of that decade and beyond. In 2004, Rolling Stone even felt compelled to
re-review the album, raising it from three starts to the ultimate five. Spin has
since honored Pinkerton as among the 100 best albums of 1985-2005 and Guitar
World ranks it among the top 100 guitar albums of all time.
Now the 4LP 180g Pinkerton release adds color to the band's musical journey with
the original Weezer-produced album remastered and 25 contemporaneous bonus
tracks, including every official B-side and 16 previously unreleased recordings.
Among the latter are the newly-discovered gem "Tragic Girl", unreleased B-side
"I Swear It's True" and numerous live performances, particularly noteworthy
given that the band rarely played Pinkerton songs after the album tour.
At the time, Pinkerton's vulnerable lyrics and edgier music took audiences and
critics by surprise. But redemption was near. Today Pinkerton approaches
platinum and is widely hailed as one of modern rock's greatest albums.
