That's the most succinct and beautiful philosophy on road trips I've ever heard. Wow. The mix likewise could not be more appropriate from top to bottom. Who better to join you on the long open road than My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, New Pornographers, old school Modest Mouse, Built to Spill, Against Me!, and the indispensable Okkervil River? And that's just the best of these all-around fabulous tracks. Really impressive, and just plain neat :)
