I missed this album for much of the year. Thankfully, my friend Lindsay made me give it a listen while I was reviewing albums for this list. Adventures in Your Own Backyard became one of my favorites of the year–even though it makes me cry almost every time I listen to it. Especially this song.
I’m super bummed I missed him on tour–although–my certain sobbing might’ve been a distraction for the other concertgoers! 😉
