And I thought what I felt was simple.

Andrew Unterberger at Stylus Magazine dissassembles (that means "to take apart into its constituent pieces ") and reconstructs Rhino Records' Whatever: The 90s Pop Culture Box as he sees fit.
It's often suspect (of LFO's 1999 hit, "Summer Girls," he writes "No song puts a smile on my face like this.") and occasionally dead wrong (I'm pretty sure his entry on Lisa Loeb's "Stay"--where he declares "Joni Mitchell never had a song that was half this good, and the 90s in general didn’t get much better than this"--is totally serious and unironic), but it's an entertaining (and thorough) nostalgia trip.
