This single features broad lyrical gestures on the ephemerality of forgiving and forgetting sung by vocalist Tim Cohen atop guitarist Wymond Miles’ chilling arpeggios and textural...

#TBTReview: Weezer’s Pinkerton (1996)

Ok, this is not necessarily an overlooked album. Still allow me to make this review personal. In fifth grade I met my first girlfriend. She didn’t know she was my girlfriend, but I figured that because I bought her Weezer’s Blue album and held her hand. So I figured; she was my girlfriend.
