College ended, and the horrors of adult life began. It’s possible all the time since then has been a Jacob’s Ladder-style fade out, or has taken place in an alternate reality. These were the albums that defined that transition:
- Radiohead – OK Computer
- Beck – Odelay
- Weezer – Pinkerton
- Garbage – Version 2.0
- Oasis – Be Here Now
- Catherine Wheel – Happy Days
- Afghan Whigs – Black Love
- Foo Fighters – self-titled
- Luna – Pup Tent
- Air – Moon Safari
- American Music Club – Engine
- Roni Size / Reprazent – New Forms
- Wu-Tang Clan – Wu-Tang Forever
Of those, Moon Safari and that Foo Fighters album are the only ones I can listen now to without looking back in anger.
