Title - 'Class of 98'
Artist - Eric Hutchinson

For those not in the know, sometime last year, Eric Hutchinson came to a strange realization: he kept daydreaming about high-school.

The adolescent dreams, hopes, fears, anxieties and emotions the singer faced as a kid began flooding back; suddenly, he felt transported back into his teenage self.

Growing up in suburban Maryland, Hutchinson’s teenage years were filled with the type of alienation and private angst recognizable to most anyone who’s ever been 17, now in 2020 the singer was finally ready to write about it.

The result: Class of 98, a '90s alt-rock-inspired autobiographical record that chronicles the singer-songwriter’s adolescence.

“It took me a long time to understand myself,” Hutchinson says. “Writing this record allowed me to get into the time machine and go back and look around my old life and report from my current point of view. That was fun.”

1. 'Rock Out Tonight'
2. 'Cooler Than You'
3. 'My Old Man'
4. 'Ann Marie'
5. 'Good Things Come'
6. 'Sweet Little Baby Rock N Roller'
7. 'If They Don’t Care (Then We Don’t Either)'
8. 'Drunk At Lunch'
9. 'Lovely Lori'
10. 'Whether I Like It Or Not'

Opening this early '90s guitar flashback of the highest order, 'Rock Out Tonight' paves the way for what's to come in magnificent, melodic-alt style, and is backed by the Weezer-esque, one-two bounce of 'Cooler Than You,' the drum-led foot-tapper 'My Old Man,' and then comes the acoustic guitar beauty, 'Ann Marie,' which also allows us to fully embrace the vocal lengths and breadths of Hutchinson.

The pace is picked up once again on 'Good Things Come,' which is followed by the gently fuzzy guitar and methodical drum work of 'Sweet Little Baby Rock N Roller,' the punchy rock of 'If They Don’t Care (Then We Don’t Either),' the alt-pop flow of 'Drunk At Lunch,' rounding out with more acoustic appeal on 'Lovely Lori,' closing on the speakers-at-eleven vibe of 'Whether I Like It Or Not.'

"Like any true son of the '90s, I know a grunge song is only good if you can rock it unplugged too," Hutchinson explains. "All of my songs start with me and an acoustic guitar, so reinterpreting these rockers was a fun and easy transition."
