…and at once i knew i was not magnificent.
high above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
i could see for miles, miles, miles

There is a certain freedom you hear on this new album, an openness and greater depth that was not previously heard on For Emma, Forever Ago. Bon Iver is an album filled with elaborate, vivid arrangements accompanied by Justin Vernon’s unique vocals. This album is Bon Iver the band.  It breathes life into your ears and you feel the emotion.  It is bold, dreamy and beautiful, a definite favorite of 2011.

    Such a great album – one of my fav’s of the year – different from his debut but as you said has “greater depth” and more layers. Enjoying your site!
