My So-Called Life

Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): Atlantic; Status: In Season

The ’90s teen-angst experience encapsulated on record: engaging bubblegrunge from the likes of the Lemonheads and Madder Rose, unrequited-love yearnings from Juliana Hatfield and Daniel Johnston (whose ”Come See Me Tonight” is stone beautiful), and a few dollops of healthy aggression from Sonic Youth and Afghan Whigs. In other words, exactly the sort of music you’d expect Claire Danes’ Angela to listen to — the only thing missing is Clearasil on My So-Called Life.B+
