Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You:

Need to grieve something. Or you’re alone in a cabin with a whiskey.

Meh, it’s alright. I think as a vinyl it’d look cool, but  on my ipod it’s kinda whatever.

Final Thoughts:

This is one of those albums that I didn’t realize that was actually really close to my heart until I sat down and listened to the whole thing. It’s hit after hit, flowing smoothly from one song to another. Absolutely beautiful music.
