Rivers Cuomo

Following the ambitious compositions and confessional themes of Pinkerton, songwriter Rivers Cuomo wrote simpler songs with less personal lyrics. Frontman Rivers Cuomo returned to Harvard University to finish his studies, but dropped out to focus on songwriting.
He stated that Weezer's subsequent albums, the Green Album (2001) and Maladroit (2002), were "very intentionally not about me. Not about what was going on in my life, at least in a conscious way."

Pinkerton (album)

After the disappointing reception for their second album, Pinkerton (1996), Weezer went on hiatus and the band members worked on side projects.
Rolling Stone described Weezer's 2001 comeback album, the Green Album, as the "anti-Pinkerton", with album art and "squeaky-clean" production that recalled Weezer's debut.
