TRACK REVIEW: Weezer – “Falling For You”

Written for DIY

“Falling For You” is the climax of Weezer’s proto-emo opus Pinkerton. After eight songs of Rivers Cuomo laying himself – his insecurities, his urges, his borderline gynophobia – bare, getting angry, getting sad, suddenly: “Holy cow! I think I’ve got one here. Now just what am I supposed to do?” Rattling through his conflicting feelings towards this too-good-to-be-true potential relationship in the making, the band accompany and sound like they might fall apart at any given moment, change time signatures about four times, the guitars not so much duelling as scrapping in the mud, feedback screaming along. It’s fantastic.
