What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 51 - Weezer - Pinkerton (20th Anniversary Special)

September 24th, 2016

Today (24. Sept. 2016) marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Weezer's second album, "Pinkerton", and in celebration we at Iron-Cast will be delving track by track into this album. Initially reviled by both critics and fans (and also by the main songwriter Rivers Cuomo), the esteem of "Pinkerton" has significantly risen in the years after its release, and, along with Beck, has become a bit of a "patient zero" for the modern hipster trend. But what of this album? Is it one of the best albums of the 90s that deserves the accolades it now receives or is it a series of half-assed efforts attempting to justify Rivers Cuomo's seeming fixation on Asian women? Tune in to find out.
