The 20th Anniversary of Our Lady Peace – Clumsy

20 years ago Monday, Our Lady Peace released Clumsy.  Speaking without doing any research or looking up basic data, I’m pretty sure this was their most popular album, and definitely the biggest fan favourite.  Personally, I prefer Spiritual Machines – but I have a place for Clumsy for sure.

I would have been 12 years old when it was released, turning 13 in March of the same year.  I remember being vaguely familiar with Our Lady Peace, hearing about them briefly in some band feature vignette on YTV.  Rock music in general wasn’t really on my radar in 1997, but I think it was my brother that suggested I select this album from one of those mail order CD catalogs that were big in the 90s.

This was one of the albums that transitioned me to a predilection toward rock music.  Still more pop-oriented, as I think in the same year I also picked up John Mellencamp’s Mr. Happy Go Lucky.

Anyway, I don’t have a lot to say about it other than reflecting on my life when it was released.  I still listen to this album from time to time, and it holds up really well.  If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s pretty much available everywhere for purchase online or streaming, so you have no excuse.
