Your favourite album in each of your teenage years

Or from whatever age you starting having favourite albums.

They don’t have to have come out the year that they were your favourite album, just what you liked most at that age.

Didn’t think that hard about it tbh, probably forgotten loads of stuff.

11 - Nirvana Unplugged (gateway drug)
12 - Dookie, Green Day (pre teen pop punk classic)
13 - Definitely Maybe, Oasis (obvs)
14 - Word Gets Around, Stereophonics (re-listened to this last night on a long drive for a laugh. It was awful. Inspiration for the thread)
15 - Bring It On, Gomez (embarassingly wrote an essay in an English GCSE exam about one of the songs on this. A, natch)
16 - Odgen’s Nut Gone Flake, The Small Faces (not sure about this one tbh but I know I listened to a lot of 60s stuff around this time)
17 - Grace, Jeff Buckley (a cool older cousin gave me this when he saw some of the shite I was listening to)
18 - Kid A, Radiohead (liked their previous albums better probably but was well into this at the time, and was a bit of a gateway into lots of other stuff)
