TYF Staff: The first albums we ever owned

We’re taking a trip down musical memory lane and reminiscing on the first CDs — or heaven forbid, cassette tapes — that we ever owned. Feel free to share your own in the comments section below!


FanMail – TLC (1999)

As kid totally obsessed with “Waterfalls,” you can imagine my excitement to get TLC’s new album, FanMailRolling Stone put it best, FanMail is “equal parts steely bitch and sweet sister, superfreak and misty romantic, self-centered coffee achiever and spiritualized earth mama.” Ten-year-old me loved it, and while there were parts of album I couldn’t quite understand yet, I loved the themes of sisterhood and girl power intertwined throughout.
