Jeff's Top 10 of 2016 - #4: Jeff Rosenstock - Worry

My #4 album this year is Jeff Rosenstock's Worry.

This one caught me by surprise and got more and more additive the more I listened to it. I didn't even list this as my favorite album of the week it came out, but did predict accurately that this would age well, and it absolutely did. This is like that classic 1990s alt-rock album you loved and forgot about, with great hooks and melodies and some nice crunchy guitars to go along with it. It's obnoxious and fun, the lyrics are off-center and provide a solid look into what a less serious album can sound like in this day and age.

Overall, just an album that fills me with joy almost every time I listen to it. If you've missed this up until now, you have to check it out.

Recommended: "The Fuzz," "Wave Goodnight to Me," "Staring Out the Window of Your Old Apartment"
