I admit: I'm not a very big fan of the modern Weezer. But their first two albums are so god damn good that it's hard not to enjoy them every once in a while. While their debut, the Blue Album, was a complete commercial success and goldmine... I prefer the more looked down upon "retarded-twin-brother" sophomore album, Pinkerton.
This record means a lot to me because when I was a freshman in high school my first "band" played a cover of "The Good Life". I had never even listened to the song until the drummer told us we should play it. I was hooked immediately. It was completely different from their first album, and I can understand why they would want a different sound- making a follow up to a great album such as the Blue Album would be damn near impossible, and by going in a different direction made sense. To me, this is a better recording than Blue, but again, it's just my opinion.
Apparently the album is loosely based on an opera by Puccinni called Madama Butterfly. A lot of the lyrical topics and themes involve the Japanese, their culture, sex, sex with Japanese girls, etc etc. You can read more on Wikipedia if you're interested.
Anyway, here's "Butterfly" from Pinkerton.
