Yep, a 3. 'Beach Baby' especially does nothing for me. The final 2 tracks are solid - if flawed - experiments, while the title track is excellent.



The experimentation may give this 4 track EP a reason to exist, but I can't rate it any higher in isolation.

To be honest before I heard his cameo spots on Kanye's newest album, I never gave much thought to Bon Iver until on a spur of the moment purchase I took a chance on this EP and saw the simple brilliance of the combination of his vocoder laden voice and his nearly opaque lyrics.



Highlights: Woods, Blood Bank, Babys

Blood Bank is the best song ever. Woods is the worst song ever. Other two are ok.



3/5



Beach Baby is pretty nice actually

I wish "Woods" could be executed convincingly live somehow. It's just so fucking brilliant and the crowd reaction would be really interesting.

Blood Bank is my favourite Bon Iver song, with Woods definitely in the top 5. The reason Woods works is because Vernon uses his voice as an instrument, not just an addition to the music. I think its more of a musical statement than a song to be read in to, and for that reason its awesome

Blood Bank is only good when performed in a live environment.
