Others have already written detailed reviews so I won't add much other than to say I completely agree, this is my album of the year for 2011 so far. I'd be amazed if a better one is released this year.
Justin Vernon has managed to expand the sound and range of his songs compared to "For Emmma", whilst retaining the same intimate, introspective, melancholic mood. Yet as with "For Emma" this isn't a depressing record, it's one full of life and hope.
