Weezerpedia:Today's featured article/August 9, 2009
Songs from the Black Hole (or SFTBH) is an unreleased, unfinished Weezer album.
A space themed rock opera/musical, SFTBH was originally envisioned as the follow-up album to The Blue Album, but during the course of songwriting/demoing, the concept was discarded, and the project evolved into the album Pinkerton. Several of the SFTBH songs ended up on Pinkerton or as single b-sides, some of which were slightly altered lyrically or sonically. SFTBH was, in the words of songwriter Rivers Cuomo, "supposed to be a whole album of songs transed together," meaning a seamless flow from one song to the next (previous examples of this technique include the closing medley of The Beatles' Abbey Road and various Pink Floyd albums including The Dark Side of the Moon The Wall, and Wish You Were Here).
