Hey boys and girls, can you say "one-hit wonders?" If so, then follow it with Weezer. The band's second release, Pinkerton (DGC) clearly shows Weezer is headed to the graveyard of forgettable bands. Pinkerton is 10 loud, grating songs that are supposed to pass as rock, but sound like trains going over rusty tracks. Three of the four band members say they do "vocals," but it's hard to tell, with the off-key, sometimes out-of-range wailing. This follow-up is a tremendous disappointment, consider the hit the Weezers are best known for, "Buddy Holly", was catchy and its video unique. But not this time. Pinkerton fails miserably.
