My mom's awesome.
  1. Nirvana - Unplugged
    The studio albums were too harsh for her but this worked.
  2. Beck - Odelay
    She was on the fence but the record store clerk's recommendation tipped the scales. She wasn't entirely won over by the album, but I sure was.
  3. NIN - Pretty Hate Machine
    I can't believe she rolled the dice on this one. There was no denying "Head Like A Hole", I guess.
  4. Los Lobos - Kiko
    Classic eclectic white mom pick.
  5. R.E.M. - Monster
    She liked the preceding three records more but this album had "What's the Frequency Kenneth?".
  6. Paul Simon - Graceland
    De rigueur for all late 80's divorcees.
