...my favorite.
I didn't think I'd ever have a new favorite. I mean c'mon, what other band is dropping "your favorite" after you've been listening to them for 15 years?

The songs flow real well. I also feel like this album is more accessible to casual listeners (without being poppy) which I think is a good thing. Right now I would put it in my top 3 roots albums. Congrats roots on making a great album.

Do I like the album? Yes. Is it amazing to me? No. Is it in my personal Roots top 3? No. I just can't get with all the indie-rock.

and i'm still stuck on Doin' It Again..

i mean overall, Thought's verses are just so heartfelt and seemingly effortless...like he's just talking to us and it just happens to rhyme intricately.

with Legend.

I'm not even really a Legend fan generally but that song goes hard, particularly that verse (Thought's best on the album for my money).
