its not perfect, but it is,
This review is from: Bon Iver (Audio CD)
There are only about half of the songs on this album that i listen to regularly, and they are also my all time favourite songs. Holocene,Towers, Wash are among my top 10 songs of all time. Thats not to say that the others arent any good though,i can appreciate them, the emotion from Justin Vernon (Bon Iver is a band not a person for those who dont know) is incredible, his passion can be felt in every song. This album is beautiful, and considering Justin Vernon composed it all himself when on a break to gather his thoughts is simply amazing. This guy is a TRUE talent, not enough of those these days.
Anyway i digress, this is a great buy and i'd say just get it. if you like it try some of Sean Carey's stuff out as well, he's another member of the band. In the Dirt and In the Stream are my favourite songs from him.
sometimes if im sad, or even happy, i just listen to Bon iver and it calms me down so much, its hauntingly beautiful music. I'd happily spend a night alone in a woods or on a beach with this on through my headphones. so good.
Just buy it, you wont regret it.
