Your Life In An Album Title

This is a simple exercise, but might take some thinking. What album name best sums up your life?

I was going through a stack of newly arrived CDs yesterday and came across one from a band called Eighteen Individual Eyes. The group's new EP (which is worth checking out) is Slightly Frightened, Mostly Happy. It immediately struck me that the title completely sums up my entire life.

I asked All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen what album name sums up his life and he offered Saucerful of Secrets by Pink Floyd or Hunky Dory by David Bowie.

So what is it for you? Green Day's American Idiot? My Bloody Valentine's Loveless? Tell us in the comments section below.
