When I was in elementary school, my sister bought two CDs. One was Dookie by Greenday and the other was Weezer's Blue album. Both of these albums made a huge impact on my taste in music. Greenday was my first introduction to punk rock (yeah yeah, they are pop punk, but you gotta start somewhere). Weezer's blue album on the other hand spoke to me in a way very little music had before. I wonder if this is because I was just starting to notice music at the time. Anyway, my favorite song off of the album is Only in Dreams. I love the slow build, and how after the song climaxes, the instruments start to drop out in the reverse order of how they came in, leaving you with just the bass line.
