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.
1,000 Kisses is pretty amazing, and you nailed all the best songs, but my personal favorite of her discography is Impossible Dream. "When it Don't Come Easy" continues to be one of my all-time favorite songs, just wow. But really she has very few if any bad songs, and has yet to release an album that hasn't been first-rate. Even Flaming Red is bad-ass. She's tremendous. Sorry to write about Patty in an Isbell thread, but I can't hold back my affection for my favorite redhead.

Haha, that's alright. Yeah, 1,000 Kisses has all of my favorite songs of hers, but I'm always hesitant to call it her best album because I think it loses steam toward the end. The sequencing on that album is a bit off too. No way that "Nobody's Crying" should have been anywhere other than in the closing slot.
Totally agree with you about "Nobody's Crying" and the tracklisting. Definitely limps to the finish line.
