Weezer (The Green Album) (1994)

EW's GRADE
A+

Details Lead Performance: Weezer; Genre: Rock

After straying into angular rock and tell-all misanthropy on 1996's Pinkerton, the nerd collective wisely rehired ex-Cars frontman Ric Ocasek (who produced their irresistible 1994 debut) for a return to their winning formula of sugary power pop and smart-assed rants. Weezer fiends weaned on classics like ''Buddy Holly'' and ''Undone -- the Sweater Song'' can breathe easy now that the band have coughed up some more sardonic sweets. B+
