Weezer [The Red Album]
Released on June 3, 2008
Comprised of sessions produced by Rick Rubin, Jacknife Lee and the band itself, the album is adventurous and undeniable Weezer pop-rock. The first single, the quirky and catchy “Pork and Beans,” was recorded under the watch of the Irishman Lee and will soon be a Weezer classic.
The Red Album has parts “Blue Album,” “Pinkerton,” and forges new territory with all four members taking turns singing lead. The “Red Album” is the rarest of modern music combinations: being both immediate and having the quality of growing better upon each subsequent listen.
