With only one album, The New Radicals decided to make what can only be described as "a powerhouse of adolescence." Perfectly capturing all the feelings of the period in the life where you don't want to participate in the system, but ultimately know you must. This music is the background for a crisis. With almost every song giving you knew chords and progressions as the album keeps building and building.

You like that? That was me doing my reviewer voice. Anyways, I love this album. ... read more


Oh no maybe I HAVE been brainwashed too oh god oh jeez


How good is "You Only Get What You Give"? That tune defines the 90s and eclipses it in an eternal shade of musical bliss. The rest of the record is a trippy, romantic, psychedelic, and depressing assortment of gems that sound just a tad more dated. But cuts like the harrowing "I Hope I Didn't Give Away The Ending" and the gorgeous yet bitter "Flowers" help make this record so much more than the sum of its timeless hit.
