    2. A Sailor’s Guide to Earth by Sturgill Simpson

    "The Kentucky songwriter’s newest album is his greatest yet, blending country stomps with the psychedelia that’s only been allowed to lurk in the background of previous releases. A Sailor’s Guide to Earth feels cohesive in spite of all its shifting moods, a testament to Simpson’s mastery of his craft and his ability to switch between the earnest orchestral beauty of opener 'Welcome to Earth' and the fun but furious political satire of 'Call to Arms.'"
