[RETURN TO MY PAST ~ EPISODE 1:]

To give an explanation as to what the hell this is: I'm going back to some albums that I used to absolutely adore in my middle school years but haven't heard in a few years.

How old does an album have to be to be a classic?

Tourist History radiates "classic" energy to me. TDCC''s approach to indie rock and pop has had me spinning for years now.

This band almost single-handedly got me into indie rock and I've never found a band in the genre I liked more (even if they've strayed away from this album's rock sound).

It's pretty generic indie, but that being said, they do it pretty well.

Tourist History is a memorable and catchy pop rock album which hooks you in from the start and refuses to let go until it's - admittedly underwhelming - ending portion. Tracks like What You Know, Something Good Can Work and Cigarettes In The Theatre put a stupid grin on my face for some reason, and so it deserves at least some credit.
