I like it as much as my fifth favorite record of the 2000s, if not more. So yes, really.
But as I and many other writers for this site have said over the years, the number is arbitrary at best. Surprised that you of all people would bring it up as a sticking point.
LOL. I think Hoge is fantastic. I truly do. I'm a huge Hoge devotee and very rarely say negative things about him. I'm just trying to stack this up against the other albums you've given lofty praise to so far this year (Butch Walker, Jimmy Eat World, Dawes, The Civil Wars). I guess that's where I'm coming from. Does that make sense?
