Not your best review to date, but considering it's my second favorite album of the year and Josh is my favorite songwriter currently recording music (a position he's held since 2003), I have no qualms. So glad you are getting on the train (even if you're eight years late).

I normally find you're pretty loose with compliments, so any negativity should really sting...

I'm not totally surprised, though, because the review didn't come together in one sitting like many of mine do. I'm not one to write some and come back at a later time, but I had to with this one for some reason. It sucks if that was transparently the case.

Ask Steve, Blake or Chris. I can certainly provide barbs from time to timet. You normally never disappoint, but this just felt askew. Listen dude, in the end, this stuff is still some of the best editorial on the site. Which is something you always provide and I am stoked that you always do. But you know I think the world of your writing, so I'm just doing my part to provide an honest critique. Nothing but respect, man.

My only complaint would be its length. The first half about his past records is kind of drawn out, but, overall, good review and good record.

Yep. I felt the same way. But hey, Jeremy writes some of the best editorial on this site. Can't really complain about his output. It's like finding flaw in Ian McEwan.

Agreed wholeheartedly with your review, Jeremy. We're in the same boat with not getting into Josh until this album, but I'm so glad I did. Fantastic stuff.

Amazing album. Ritter is a genius, easily one of the best songwriters of his generation.

Yeah, I just read Saturday. While I enjoyed it, it did get a bit tedious mid-book. I absolutely loved the last few pages, though.
