"Some music does not age well, and some music doesn’t age at all. 'Room On Fire' falls into the latter category. If not for its sound, which nearly two decades later, still elicits wide-eyed adulation, but for its subject matter. From the opening lyrics “I want to be forgotten / and I don’t want to be reminded” to the refrain of “I Can’t Win” on the closing track, the album is an acknowledgment of a perception shift, a nod to that feeling of finally getting what you thought you wanted, and realizing (for better or worse) that it’s nothing like you expected."
