Teenage Kicks.

I don’t go in for the whole thing that the music from your teens is never bettered, but there is something really magical about albums that come out and connect with you during those years. These are my favourite albums that came out during my teenage years; each one eagerly anticipated, with no way of hearing it until you went out and bought it. What are your favourite albums to drop during your teens?

In no particular order:

Tori Amos – From The Choirgirl Hotel

Smashing Pumpkins – Adore

REM – New Adventures In Hi-Fi

Ben Folds Five – Whatever And Ever Amen

Placebo – Without You I’m Nothing

Jurassic 5 – self titled

Metallica – Load

Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory

Massive Attack – Mezzanine

Unbelievable Truth – Almost Here

Frou Frou – Details*

Bjork – Homogenic

Radiohead – OK Computer

Deftones – White Pony

Roni Size + Reprazent – In The Mode

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – The Boatman’s Call

*strictly speaking not a teen record as I’d not long turned 20, but this was so a part of that era. There’s a funny irony to that nowadays of course…
