Carroll Thompson - Hopelessly In Love
This album wraps me up just like Carroll’s fur jacket wraps her up on the cover. This album takes care of me and walks me home. Everything is rounded and wholesome. Everything is like a warm bread roll. If you’ve fallen out of love, this album makes you fall back in. When I put it on, I wave my head around and close my eyes. Every time Carroll plays live, I’m too scared to go and see her. I love her too much.
