℗ 1994 DGC Records
This may be my favotie of all Weezer albums because I love every song on the album. I love it for the cheery hooks and tunes put to more serious, emotional and intelectual lyrics.
I have the fondest memories of staying up late into a summer night at a sleep over with friends listening to this album while everyone else was asleep. Musically and lyrically superb. Hard, crunching guitars, with some blistering solos. Only In Dreams is not only one of my favorite songs of any artist, but is also one of the most emotional and cathartic songs ever. Just a relentless blistering release of emotion at the end. Having said that, I don’t recall the last time I listened to the album from beginning to end. I think it’s because of having so much emotion and nostalgia wrapped up in it that it makes me sad, in a way. Like it leaves me longing for my youth.
