Continuing my list of favorite albums from every year I've been alive.
Semisonic: Feeling Strangely Fine
Not a lot of great albums this year, but all my favorite songs were towards the Alternative end of the Pop spectrum, so I guess it was an okay year. I liked "Closing Time" enough to buy the album and ended up liking the whole thing.
Cake: "Never There"
Fastball: "The Way"
Alanis Morissette: "Joining You"
New Radicals: "You Get What You Give"
