EDITORS’ NOTES

After dropping three solid efforts in the ’90s, each one better than the last, Powderfinger totally nailed it with 2000’s Odyssey Number Five. Anchored by the razor-sharp, Brit-rock-inspired “My Happiness,” the album strikes a balance between crazy-hummable hooks and lyrics soaked in personal strife and political disenchantment. The group’s anger boils over with “Like a Dog,” a snarling indictment of their government’s mistreatment of aboriginal Australians.
