what i like about music #4: pinkerton

this album is like that scene in almost famous: "I'm flying high over Tupelo, Mississippi...with America's hottest band...and we're all about to die." them yelling truths at each other. dirty little deep down dark secrets that must be revealed in the last moments of your life. he's yelling his secrets at the universe for all to hear, real loud and unafraid because soon he will be dead and not around to see the fallout or feel the embarrassment. things that must be said before the end. these are the things you do not say:

…And I don't wanna be an old man anymore
It's been a year or two since I was out on the floor
Shakin' booty, makin' sweet love all the night
It's time I got back to the Good Life
It's time i got back, it's time i got back
and I don't even know how I got off the track
I wanna go back…Yeah!
Weezer, The Good Life

They don't make stationery like this where I'm from
So fragile, so refined
So I sniff and I lick your envelope
And fall to little pieces every time
I wonder what clothes you wear to school
I wonder how you decorate your room
I wonder how you touch yourself
And curse myself for being across the sea 

I'm a lot like you so please
Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you
And you'd be good for me
Weezer, El Scorcho

this is my favorite album. hands down.....all the melodies all the's just awesome.

I've been checking out new bands similar to this album, so far ozma is the most similar one I've found. Also, this band is pretty cool, but they're not really on a label or anything so I don't know how much they'll keep releasing:
