Twelve years after the original formation of Brian, Rivers, Scott and Patrick, the band Weezer is going forward with a new edition of their popular “Blue Album.” Famous for their easy-to-relate-to lyrics of adolescent angst, teenage relationships gone wrong and other generational dilemmas, this recollection promises to be musically advanta-geous to those who have enjoyed their previous titles, including “Weezer,” “The Green Album,” “Maladroit” and “Pinkerton.” “The Green Album” gained commercial success with tracks like “Hash Pipe” and “Island in the Sun,” as well as previous praise for their original hits “Buddy Holly” and “Say It Ain’t So.” Many have marveled at the band’s ability to return, despite long periods away, with just as much strength and delivery as they had when they left. Disk two of Weezer’s “Blue Album Deluxe” (the original recording mastered version), includes fan favorites like “Say It Ain’t So,” “My Name is Jonas,” and “The Sweater Song” – all in a variety of forms, including live, B-sided, or both. Even die-hard followers will be scrambling for this album, as it features the bands rarest tunes, packages, and essays. While the second disk is not as studio-enhanced as the first, it will no doubt be praised by some of the band’s truest punk listeners. If you happen to be one of those who only prefer Weezer’s radio-friendly versions, you would be safe saving your money and just buying the original “Blue Album,” since the “Deluxe” version’s only difference is it’s inclusion of a second disk.
