|(album cover Bon Iver, Bon Iver)|
Justin or Bon Iver as we all know and love, took a long time to release this second album and in his own words said, "this is a sounds-first album, leading with the how and not the what." Sounds amazing doesn't it?
As many devout followers of his music know, he is a complex and deep singer-songwriter. I think the review from Pretty Much Amazing sums it up best with this take -
"For Emma, Forever Ago, the stark and raw album that put Bon Iver on the map, wasn’t just a solo work, it was a work of solitude. While Bon Iver, Bon Iver retains some of that album’s wintery feel; it is clear that there is more communion here."
Listen and then decide for yourself.
