We gave it a B

No discernible through-line on Reality Bites, except for some guitar-heavy production and boy-girl-life angst. Still, it’s a hit list (U2, Crowded House, Juliana Hatfield, Lenny Kravitz) with few misses (Ethan Hawke’s whiskey-scratch bark), plus nice surprises, like the new Posies tune and the unsigned Lisa Loeb. All told, not a bad way to thumb your nose back at reality. B
