USA, 1999, indie rock / pop rock
Wilco – Summerteeth: This is one of the best examples I can think of of an album that is at its core so sad yet sounds so happy. Every time I hear this album, I feel a little older than the mere passage of time should make me feel. So much spirit is spent on this album–themes of internal falling apart, relationship disintegration, dreams of murder, meaninglessness. Smiling on the outside, dead on the inside.
