Few albums in rock history have enjoyed as complete a critical and popular turnaround as Weezer's Pinkerton. Though tagged as a disappointment upon it's release, today Pinkerton is considered one of the most influential and important albums of the decade and beyond. In 2004 Rolling Stone even felt compelled to re-review the album raising it from three stars to the ultimate five stars. Spin has since honored Pinkerton as among the 100 best albums of 1965-2005 and Guitar World ranks it among the top 100 albums of all-time. Now the 4 LP deluxe edition adds color to the band's musical journey with the original Weezer produced album remastered and 25 contemporaneous bonus tracks featuring every official B-side with 16 previously unreleased recordings. Among the latter are the newly discovered gem 'Tragic Girl', unreleased B-side 'I Swear It's True' and numerous live performances, particularly noteworthy given that the band rarely played Pinkerton songs after the tour. At the time Pinkerton's vulnerable lyrics and edgier music took audiences and critics by surprise. But redemption was near. Today Pinkerton approached platinum and is widely hailed as one of rock's greatest albums.
