Agreed, probably my favourite album of the year.

The song writing is excellent - "Elephant" has to be the best song written about cancer - anyone who has lost someone close to this awful disease will get it.

"Songs that she sang in the shower" - is a breakup song but brilliantly observed and written, here's the opening lines

On a lark, on a whim,

I said “There’s two kinds of men in this world and you’re neither of them”

And his fist cut the smoke

I had an eighth of a second to wonder if he got the joke

In the car headed home

She asked if I had considered the prospect of living alone

With a steak held to my eye

I had to summon the confidence needed to hear her goodbye,

And another brief chapter without any answers blew by
