4.0 excellentVegeta of Nazareth | August 20th 13

lol you can't repave an ocean, Vernon. Come now with your abstract thinking. It has no scientific basis in reality.

With Repave, Justin Vernon proves that he doesn't have to release an album under the Bon Iver name for it to be a fantastic piece of art.

Not bad, but I'm starting to think Justin Vernon really isn't the genius we thought he was. There's just so much experimental, empty space. It gets old quickly.

4.0 excellentWilliam Lim | October 4th 13

Album Rating: 4.0

Repave sails its way into the top tier of this year's exceptional catalog with some much needed uplifting rock music. Where Bon Iver is perhaps a more subtle entity, what strikes with Volcano Choir is that the band is a little more straightforward and upfront, but equally as dreamy in their impacting and beautiful indie rock instrumentation, taking cues from indie folk in Repave's acoustic guitar tendencies and post-rock in its build-up driven structuring. Repave is a rich endeavour for its endless succession of masterful melodies and instrumental arrangements which will surely catch you off guard, and its this songwriting skill that escalates the album's impact remarkably when it becomes apparent that Volcano Choir knows exactly what they're doing 100% of the time, and does it well. It's intent, no-bullshit music that doesn't want to prove itself as experimental or edgy, and needs only to be completely, wonderfully beautiful.

3.5 greatLargeTuna | September 4th 13

First two thirds are outstanding, but the last third is pretty underwhelming. Still, it should get its fair share of well-earned spins.

4.0 excellentD-D-D-D-Dave | August 28th 13

Goddamn it, Justin. I didn't plan to feel like this today.
