U Can't Touch This

Rhino records, which specializes in reissues, issues a compilation of 90's hits. It's a milestone: the 90's was an important decade in music in general and for me personally and Rhino is a serious company whose re-releases got character. Curiously, there's no Radiohead, Soundgarden or Nirvana, but actually it makes sense; there still are many reasons for me to buy it: there are a lot of one-hit wonders whose albums i wouldn't but anyway, and there are wonderful surprises such as Stereolab's "Cybele's Reverie" and Grant Lee Buffalo's "Mockingbirds", which i feel ashamed for having only as MP3's. And what makes it completely irresistible is the first track - "U Can't Touch This".

All too allegorical...
