  1. 8.0 |   Mojo

    With his trademark gothic drawl, Patterson Hood limns close highway calls with perspicacity, then mourns the compatriots he's lost to foibles and vices alike. Perennially underrated Mike Cooley, meanwhile, hands in some of his sharpest-ever writing. Print edition only

    After this much time together, the mature look back makes sense
