A Nostalgic Look Back On Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Coming Out of Our Shells”

Coming Out of Our Shells by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

If you could get in a time machine and ask me in my 7-year old wisdom, what the best album of all time was, I would have easily answered Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Coming Out of Our Shells,” without hesitation. Seriously, the album was my jam back in the day.
