Bon Iver is undoubtedly the best folk band of the last decades. "For Emma, Forever Ago" is their masterpiece. This album exudes a soft, greyish, snowy and melancholy atmosphere. This folk is minimal but also intelligent, Justin Vernon (singer-songwriter) is an accomplished musician who really has a writing talent. This album is extraordinary, beautiful and addictive!

9/10

Best track: "Skinny Love"

Not gonna lie, I expected to be greeted with crappy, pretentious, modern indie folk/pop music, but this album is nothing like that. Simply beautiful album that can somehow be described in one word: Winter.

Always come back to this album. I know I should be glad that it's rated in the top 100 albums of all time, but gosh I really think it should be higher than 94. Top 40 IMO

Beautiful folk album... I will definitely be listening to this again sometime. I didn't catch a lot of lyrics but the instrumentals and harmonies were just great.
