Bon Iver 22, A Million


#1

Who would have thought t’Fork would give it a 9 ?


#2

Hearing a lot of good things about this. Whereas the single hasn’t struck me as particularly different from anything else he’s done. @xylo was particularly impressed with what he heard.

Once I’ve finished re-listening to Bloc Party’s Four I’ll give the stream a go.

On first listen it sounds good. Perhaps nothing as magical as Calgary on there but enjoyed just about every track and he certainly hasn’t lost his ear for a beautiful melody.

Bit bemused by some of the reaction to this: people saying its a huge revolution in his sound, even seen the odd comparison to Kid A in there. Sure if you were to play this next to “For Emma” it’s much more electronic but I think it actually sounds like a pretty straightforward progression from S/T if you take into account the work he’s been doing in between


#4

Got bored on track 3 to be honest and decided to listen to Raw Power instead.


#5

Any update on what @xylo thinks of it?


#6

I don’t think so @ma0sm but maybe you should ask @xylo directly?


#7

However, @ma0sm I feel like @jordan_229 is the big-hitter whose opinions a sold-out audience would really listen to.


#8

woah, 715 Creeks is amazing


#9

It’s a fucking embarrassing pile of shite. The prick has just forgotten how to write a song and is covering it with production wankery.

2/10

when the bass comes in on 666… what a lovely moment


#11

hi jordan!


#12

Did he record it in a cabin?


#13

He’s been sleeping in a stable, mate.


#14

If it’s not been done in a cabin I ain’t fucking interested mate!


#15

Still can’t get over ‘I’ve been sleeping in a stable mate’ and ‘fuckified’ appearing in the same song.


#16

:smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Fucking hell, Justin mate. The fuck is this!?


#17

Jesus, this is really bad.


#18

Somehow finished the whole thing, fucking great bants from yer man :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:


#19

When s/t came out, I waited a month for the dust to settle before listening to it. Judging by the contrasting reactions so far, that might also be a good ploy this time.


#20

Apparently the lyrics are great, shame you can’t fucking hear them
