Weezer - Make Believe
Anyway, Make Believe is a perfect Weezer album as far as I'm concerned. Every song is a finely-crafted rock gem. I love the fact that they added keyboards on this album. It really does something awesome to their sound. I'm just amazed they didn't figure that out after they recorded "I Just Threw Out the Love of My Dreams," which was one of the Pinkerton b-sides. Oh, and regardless of what anyone says about "Beverly Hills," the talk-box solo is awesome. I've seen Rivers do the talk-box solo live, and it's the greatest thing since Frampton. I know that critics and fans weren't too thrilled about Make Believe, but I don't care. This is as good an album as Weezer has ever made.
