Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Sad, so very sad.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It brings home the fact that most of this was written in the wilderness, it’s not a bad cover, but it’s not an amazing one either.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Already own it, and it sounds haunting.

Final Thoughts:

This is one of my all-time favourite albums, Bon Iver’s best work here, I’d be shocked if I found another album of theirs to surpass it. It’s so beautiful and has helped me through a lot of rough nights.
