USA, 1994, alternative rock

Frank BlackTeenager of the Year: I find it hard to think of anything to write about this album because it’s been a part of the fabric of my soundscape for so many years. This is a beloved favorite because of the cerebral lyricism married so effortlessly to fun singalong rock songs. “They tried to give me advice down at the record shop. I said, ‘Sit down, boys. This may come as a shock: the only thing I listen to is freedom rock’.” I love this sense of awareness Black has in calling out music snobbery. Clocking in at 22 tracks, this album has plenty of room for the harder, faster rock songs and more ballad-y or bouncy pop tunes.
