@schuth @hutaffe Cool! I found Radiohead way later, so they don’t have that same nostalgic shimmer to me. But Basket Case and When I Come Around definitely bring me back to my best friends room, playing Super Empire Strikes Back in the SNES.

@schuth @MrHenko it was such a great time! I guess I will listen to some more music tonight 😉

@MrHenko @hutaffe We must be rough contemporaries. Love Garbage & am nostalgic now for similar chapter of life reasons. (Also: Green Day & Radiohead) Moved to Madison a decade ago; it’s a bit surreal to drive by the studio where Garbage recorded those first four albums.

@hutaffe Indeed! I think that's the ultimate proof that people of our age are now old enough to be nostalgic. :)

@MrHenko yeah, I was 10. But it's true, music that’s special to you in special times of life will stick forever, no matter how bad it is. That’s also why I love music so much. I have countless songs and albums like that. Always great to stumble upon them from time to time ☺️

@hutaffe I think Crash Test Dummies was just before "my time". Off course I've heard the songs but I was just eight years old when the album came out, so it didn't stick with me.

@MrHenko I fail to operate micro.blog today. Reply got lost... It's always like that with music for me. I even have very good memories about a Crash Test Dummies album 🙈🙉🙊 But I also think that Version 2.0 was their best album by far!

@hutaffe Awesome! And it had a remote! My cassette walkman was way less fancy and I don't remember what brand my cd one was.

@MrHenko sadly I don’t, but I think this was it... What a beauty! ☺️

@hutaffe Given how the roadtrip influenced your regard for Not Your Kind of People, maybe we hold Version 2.0 is such high regard because of those memories of walkmans, bicycles and school. (And the girl that I liked when I was 14. Her name always flickers by in my mind when I listen to this album.)

@hutaffe Wow, I've been out of touch with the music lately. I had no idea that they had released anything new after Bleed Like Me. I need to chech this out!

@MrHenko 😆 I had a real cassette walkman. It was a real fancy one because it was basically just as thick as the cassette itself. What a technological piece of art at the time 😉

@MrHenko Not Your Kind Of People stuck with me because I heard it a lot on a roadtrip through California with a friend ☺️ The rest of the older stuff is quite good too, but I sadly didn’t really care for. Their latest album is way too weird for me though.

@hutaffe How do you feel about Garbage's other albums? For me it's only the "The World is not Enough" single that's stuck with me. Still love the bamd though, just because 2.0 is so incrediby good.

@hutaffe Same here with the bike riding and listening to this. In my case it was a cd walkman. (With 10 seconds of electronic skip protection!) That walkman scratched this cd up so badly that eventually it wasn't playable anymore so it's one of the few cds that I've bought two copies of.

@MrHenko This is one of my all time favorites! When I hear these songs I still see my self on a bike, riding to school, listening to them my walkman. I still know all the lyrics… It's a magic and special album.

♫ I’m currently listening to Garbage’s album Version 2.0. This is the soundtrack to my angsty teenage years. I love it!
