"Chiptune? F-f-f-f-fuuuuck your shit"
That might be what you're thinking. Probably not, but maybe. Designing a Nervous Breakdown is the debut album of The Anniversary, Kansas' pride and joy*. Actually, it never really got that big, but that doesn't detract from the awesomeness of this album. It came out in 2000, but it never made any "best of the naughts" lists, which is a real shame. Their style is like the middle-road between Jimmy Eat World and the Get Up Kids, with some synth here, some synth there, and female back-up vocals.
Best Tracks: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, The D in Detroit, Perfectly, Without Panasos
*Interestingly enough, they were just a circle of bros who never really got serious until highschool friend Matthew Pryor (of The Getup Kids, no less) suggested they make an album. It's all about connections, man.
