Blood bank teasing me for more...,
This review is from: Blood Bank (Audio CD)
First off - I am one of those who absolutely loved For Emma... in that it hit me right in the chest and didn't let go.
Blood Bank has kept him in there and built on an already solid foundation that keeps me coming back for more.
I have never listened to an artist that conveys a sense of bewildering loss better than Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and I'm not sure I ever will. The connection is amazing. Our circumstances are nothing alike yet I feel myself listening to his records over and over again.
Blood Bank is a taster of more brilliance that I hope to embrace in the future. The title track has me on the verge of tears every time I hear it. Lyrics that brilliantly portray an emotion that only people who have experienced love and unfortunately loss can appreciate.
I'm sorry but at the moment no-one out there can touch him. If you like music that has feeling then you could do a damn site worse than spend some cash on Bon Iver.
