Incredibly, the sound of Teen Spirit turns 30 years old today. While the album truly saturated the zeitgeist to the point of being overplayed and, for a time, too heartbreaking to listen to, revisiting the actual artifact, it feels wonderfully alive and powerful.

Sayama's debut album not only loudly pushed her to the forefront of alternative pop but also provided listeners with a much-needed introduction to who she is and how the subject matter of her music intersects with that identity. For those looking for an introduction to upbeat pop music and intricate lyrics with a penchant for genre exploration, look no further than the album RINA.
