10 Songs, 34 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Bon Iver’s third LP is as bold as it is beautiful. Made during a five-year period when Justin Vernon contemplated ditching the project altogether, 22, A Million perfects the sound alloyed on 2011’s Bon Iver: ethereal but direct, layered but stripped-back, as processed as EDM yet naked as a fallen branch. The songs here run together as though being uncovered in real time, with highlights—“29 #Strafford APTS,” “8 (circle)”—flashing in the haze.

Don’t like it.

I liked their first album so much. Hate to listen to this one.

Masterpiece

I didn't care for the album at first, but the more I listened, the more I heard and now I place it easily in my top 3 albums of all time. My hats off to you sir for an incredible, moving and inspired album.

Uninspiring

While I understand the need for artists to capture new voices and sounds to grow, I felt that this album went in the wrong direction. The past albums always inspired me and made me feel something. This album was mostly just noise thrown together. Apart from one or two songs, I couldn't listen to the album. While I love Justin Vernon and the genius behind his music, this let me down. I don't recommend purchasing this album. Instead, listen to some of his old music with Volcano Choir. You won't be disappointed!
