Memoir in Music

Age 10: The Offspring - Smash (Angry lyrics, lovely noise...)

Age 11-12: Soundtrack to The Crow (Love and pain and killer's poise...)

Age 13: The Roots - Things Fall Apart (Boastful pride as darkness looms...)

Age 14: Jack Johnson - Brushfire Fairytales (Smooth notes soften schoolhouse doom...)

Age 15-16: Modest Mouse - Lonesome Crowded West (Headphones on, alone at last...)

Age 18: Phil and Jimmy - EP (Found: excuse to fail in class...)

Age 20: Ani DiFranco - Out of Range (Understanding woman's scorn...)

Age 22: Paramore - Riot (From the ashes, love reborn...)

Age 23: Imogen Heap - Ellipse (Fountain, liberated, wild...)

Age 24: Ben Folds & Nick Hornby - Lonely Avenue (Purpose-hungry, music-child.)
