Weezer – Maladroit




If “The Return of Weezer” likened The Green Album to The Blue Album, then Maladroit is Weezer 2.0’s Pinkerton. While lacking the depth in lyrics in comparison to the actual Pinkerton (much like Green compared to Blue), the raw, loud, and complete abandonment of pop-rock is very Pinkerton-esque. Add on top of the sound the critical and commercial success (or lack thereof) and you have a criminally underrated Weezer album.
