Really good album. Minnesota is criminally underrated in my opinion.

It now feels like the weakest Bon Iver album. It's still a very good album but it doesn't have the vurnerability of the debut nor the experimentation of the third. It falls a bit short on both of those categories.

It's easy for most to cast this of as a middle-of-the-road folk album but they've created is like nothing and something you've heard before. Permeated with loose song structures, delicate but eerie synths and crushing lines on malaise. If you didn't enjoy it frst time around, I strongly suggest another try and a try after that, the pay off is euphoric.

The album may not do much as far as sophisticated music, but it knows what it is.

The first half of this album is absolutely incredible. This album was instantly nostalgic for me even after only a few listens. A unique and immensely emotional indie art rock record that has no equal.

I don't have an explanation for why I like this album so much, I honestly don't. There's nothing musically original or stylistically profound on here, it just has this soul-wrenching quality to it I can't explain. Even on the less profound songs on the back end I feel my spirit moved.

When reading comments on "For Emma, Forever Ago", I read several comments comparing that album to this one, and stating that this album was over produced. After having listened to the album, I have to agree with them. Thats not to say that I think that the other album is better. I think they're both flawed album, but in very different ways.

After falling in love with, 22, a million, I went and listened to this album again and it suddenly made even more sense. All three records are absolutely beautiful. Stunning music, a unique and brilliant artist. Superb.

Not as brilliant or as focused as, for,Emma, still, it's another strong album from an artist who will interesting to follow over the years. Good.
