    I haven't gotten to listen to the entire album quite yet or as closely as I'd like but a standout so far that I really am digging is "The Whole World".

    You're the only other person I've seen mention Handsome Ghost, that is such a great album and was a really pleasant surprise for me last year. That Against the Current album was also one of my favorite finds of the year.

    Handsome Ghost would be top 5 if I were ranking my albums based on pure beauty of sound. As much as I love the album every time I give it a spin... I don't find myself going back to it all that often so that's why it was given a mention as opposed to a high ranking number .

    Music, a steady riot in my soul. Prestigious

    I can echo these sentiments at 38, but what a great year to have a lot of stellar releases. Even with the limited time I have compared to when I was younger, I feel like there were a lot of high quality releases filling up that time.

    Trusted Prestigious

    Pleasantly surprised at the Musgraves #1. Would have sworn, as I assume most people thought, it would be the 1975.
