Weezer (commonly known as the Blue Album) is the eponymous debut studio album by the American rock band. The album came two years after the band's founding, after they initially struggled as an alternative to grunge music, which was prevalent in Los Angeles during the early 1990s. It was almost entirely arranged and composed by frontman Rivers Cuomo, who also anticipated to lead the band in self-producing the album. However, at the behest of DGC, the band was required to include a producer, and collectively opted for Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. Most of the recording was conducted at Electric Lady Studios in New York City between August and September 1993.

Everyone knows the singles, Buddy Holly, Undone and Say It Ain't So (the latter being the absolute best song on the album). Since the recent release of Guitar Hero 3, you could almost count My Name Is Jonas in that easily recognized song category.  I don't care as much for No One Else, The World Has Turned... or Surf Wax America.  I have a certain affinity for In the Garage, but that may have something to do with the lyrics (maybe not with the exact objects of River's affections but the general idea of having your own safe place to indulge all your favourite nerdy past times).  Every time I listen to Holiday, I think of Queen. Only in Dreams is a great closer that takes them out of their 3-4 minute song habit and builds to a great climax. Although Pinkerton is a more cohesive album, the Blue Album has so many classic Weezer songs that you can't ignore it.
