Weezer’s first album Weezer (also known as The Blue Album) was released 18 years ago today.
I could go on and on with an in-depth track-by-track analysis, but all I really need to say is to me, this is the perfect album.
I didn’t hear any songs off of this album until September 1994, and didn’t get the album until that Christmas (my first CD), but I’ve been listening to it ever since. It’s the album that got me into music. Before that, I had bought, listened to and enjoyed music, but I can’t say I ever was really into a band before Weezer.
It should also probably be noted that another Weezer album, 2005’s Make Believe was also released on May 10th. While not as perfect as Blue (I can’t get behind We Are All On Drugs and Beverly Hills gets old), it’s still a very enjoyable album.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some listening to do.
