Album owns. Definitely in EOTY discussion. An absolute beast/whale of a disc. Still think you're nuts to think that Hoge's disc is better than this, but to each their own, my good friend.
Also, you recommended Patty Griffin's 1,000 Kisses. Have you listened to American Kid? That's been my AOTY since it was released and has not wavered from that spot.
Hahaha, "Elephant" is probably my song of the year, but Hoge's is my album of the year. Both are going to be in my top five though.
Yes, I've heard American Kid
. I like it. Need to listen to it more. Nothing hit me quite like my favorite songs from 1000 Kisses
do ("Nobody's Crying," "Long Ride Home," "Rain," the "Stolen Car" cover), but I think it might be up there with her most consistent work. Thanks for the reminder.
