Happy Birthday Blue Album!
So today I found out that Weezer’s ‘Blue Album’ turns 22 years old today. The Blue Album was Weezer’s first debut studio album and also my favourite album by Weezer. I first got introduced to Weezer just from watching replays of there music videos on Much Music back in the early 2000s. I believe ‘Island in the Sun’ was the first music video I watched from the group but it wasn’t the track that got me into the band. After digging more into there music I fell in love with there songs. Out of all there albums, there Blue Album was my favourite. Every song is simple but the words speak so loud because they are so relatable.
Last year I got to attend Riot Fest in Toronto which one of the most magical, surreal, and blessed events of my life because I got to see Weezer end the festival by performing the entire Blue Album on stage while the sun set. On top of that they performed other favourites before they closed, which is amazing because Weezer has been around for over 10 years and they still managed to give an amazing performance. That performance was my favourite performance to date.
