1. Eilleen: The Complete Limelight Sessions (Shania Twain)
    Static
    This is the first album I ever owned. I got it from my uncle for Christmas and I had no idea who Shania Twain was. This album introduced me to country and rock n roll, as well as shameless air guitar sessions in my bedroom.
  2. Abbey Road (The Beatles)
    Static
    In grade nine I finally HEARD what my father played all those years growing up and I fell in love with the Fab Four. They introduced me to meaningful song lyrics and wacky psychedelic sound. Oh, and hippie culture ✌️☮
  3. Recovery (Eminem)
    Static
    The Real Slim Shady was struggling with depression and addiction. I was struggling with heartbreak and abuse. He was in recovery, and so was I.
  4. The Blessed Unrest (Sara Bareilles)
    Static
    She taught me to be brave, to love fearlessly, and that I could have a voice through music and poetry.
  5. Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die (Panic! at the Disco)
    Static
    No one else could accurately express how I felt growing up as a teenager like Brendon Urie could. (Plus he's a fox and I was an emo kid once.)
