    What Kind Of World has 8 thousand listeners? Seriously? How is this even possible? Ok, so maybe Brendan isn't all that popular, but it's a lovely album and everything.. I was sort of inclined to think it's not as good as the previous two, but I couldn't keep up with that opinion - it's sort of different, but great. In a sort of way where I find myself listening to it over and over again, and not the other albums (though I love those too).
