    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    I really like how this record is the sunnier, poppier companion to Dying Star, like the latter resembles the dead of night and the former the morning after.

    Still reasonably confident that this is my favorite album that's come out this year.

    It’s a toss up between Ruston Kelly, Bright Eyes, & Brian Fallon for me.

    Right now I got this at 4 or 5. It’s been an absurdly strong year for singer songwriters.

    awesome list! I just realized like a week ago that Nation of Language was the guy from Static Jacks and I’m so happy to have his songwriting back.

    I love Nation of Language's debut so much. I've been saying to anyone who will listen that if you found that record in a bin and were told it was the greatest hits of a lost 80s new wave band, they'd 100% believe you. Should check out Static Jacks.
