One Perfect Album- Gavin DeGraw's Chariot

I stumbled upon a great cover of one of my favorite songs from this album earlier this week and went back to this album and thought it needed sharing. I first listened to this when I was 11 or 12, and I haven't stopped yet. It's absolutely flawless, from start to finish. There are two versions, a studio version and a stripped version, both are incredible.
Lyrically it's simple and gorgeous and I loved as much at 11 as I do at 19. Musically it's just about the best pop album I own. I seriously never get tired of it. I met Gavin DeGraw when I was 13 and he was one of the nicest guys in the world, too!
I was going to list a few favorite tracks, but I seriously couldn't pick. I love them ALL. I'm so nostalgic listening to this, but at the same time I feel completely comfortable happy listening to it now.

Hunter Parrish covering Gavin DeGraw's "Belief." His dog even harmonizes towards the end. SO CUTE!

What's your one perfect album? I probably have a few more, but this one came to mind this week. Have you listened to Chariot? Let me know if you pick it up!

  1. I remember this album perfectly! I saw him live at a festival in the rain right after it released and he wore a black trash bag as a poncho the entire time he was on stage, tres chic! Haha
