first paragraph of this is great and then you spend a whole third of the review talking about bon iver. i'm not saying there is no point in touching on similarities between this and other vernon works, but you really should try to avoid long tangents like this one:

"he's proven that Bon Iver can release a record with none of the mythos that surrounded the entity of For Emma, and yet still pull it off, which is exactly what his self-titled did. The songs "Holocene" and "Towers" were Bon Iver's folk-side we've come to fall in love with since the debut, but what truly made self-titled such a worthy successor was its enormity. Whether it was the booming fuzz layered over guitar noodling on "Minnesota" while Vernon crooned "never gonna break, never gonna break, never gonna break," or the momentous 80s-esque ballad "Beth/Rest" exploding in their live shows, the self-titled was a work that didn't need an enchanting story behind it"

@sniper: I suppose you're right. And I guess that wouldn't be fair to the other members who have nothing to do with Bon Iver. I kind of see Justin Vernon as a Thom Yorke though in his influence and involvement in the music industry and would probably go into an Atoms for Peace review talking about Radiohead just as much as I talked about Bon Iver in this. I do see your point though and will be more conscious of that next time! Thanks!
