My So-Called Life (1995)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Various Artists

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+
