Album is called Bon Iver, Bon Iver.
And not everybody is familiar with Bon Iver, you really need to say what type of music he plays or make a proper RIYL.

I liked "For Emma, Forever ago", but I love this album. It'll be hard for any other album to top my list this year.

good review, but i would have at least mentioned Blood Bank, which was a definite indication of the direction Bon Iver was headed, and ultimately landed upon with Bon Iver, Bon Iver.

I don't think Blood Bank was any indication of the direction they were heading in. It felt like a slight departure from For Emma, but still fairly similar.

This told me next to nothihng about the album. If I didn't know Bon Iver I wouldn't even know which genre the music was. That said, I'm looking forward to the album and am glad you enjoyed it.

I've only listened to the first three songs, but I can tell this record's going to be something special. For Emma still spins very frequently and I consider it a case for why modern music doesn't entirely suck. It's a brilliant record and I think you should definitely go back and give a second chance.
Review is okay though; describing some of the songs would've helped and you seemed to meander and just kind of go in circles.

no offense, but this review is sort of bland. i mean, you didn't even get the album title right. and "complaining" that it's difficult to decipher the lyrics is ridiculous when justin uses his voice as an instrument, only he's capable of manipulating it to his advantage on every level, thus the words aren't as significant as one may think, especially since a majority of the album is written in code anyway. then you contradict yourself by saying, just when you think a song starts to drag, you say, it's never not once a dull journey. which one is it? i could go on, but i won't. although, i do agree that the blood bank ep has hardly anything to do with bon iver, bon iver. thank you for saying that in the comments. so true imo.

For some reason, this album isn't sticking with me. I loved For Emma and Blood Bank, but I think some of that accidental, democratic attitude is gone now. I don't know.
