Weezer - Pinkerton (Vinyl)

Limited vinyl LP pressing includes a 12 x 12 insert. Pinkerton is the second studio album by the band Weezer, released on September 24, 1996.

Direct Metal Mastering for an optimal sound cut at Abbey Road Mastering Studios.

After abandoning plans for a rock opera titled Songs from the Black Hole, Weezer recorded Pinkerton between songwriter Rivers Cuomo's terms at Harvard University, where he wrote much of the album. To better capture their live sound, Weezer produced Pinkerton themselves, creating a darker, more abrasive album than their 1994 self-titled debut.

Cuomo's lyrics express disillusionment with the rock lifestyle; the album is named after the character BF Pinkerton from Giacomo Puccini's 1904 opera Madama Butterfly, whom Cuomo described as an "asshole American sailor similar to a touring rock star". Like the opera, the album contains references to Japanese culture.
