That's just it... It's almost like he never existed at all!

I'm like MLKJ only I stand down a few steps. I think we should all rally under the flag of our God as we did in 1776 but I don't think that I should have to follow fundamental values of Christianity like helping the poor. Social justice is just an excuse to sow the seeds of propaganda. Invest in gold. Next time I'm thinking about renting out the mosque that is going to be built (courtesy of FOX NEWS) by Ground Zero and taking my predominantly WASP crowd to take a tour of a terrorist organization. The Obama regime cannot keep us safe. We must rebel!



It was good for my pocketbook?

You don’t even need to listen to the music to realise this. Just look at the pseudonym that Vernon adopts for this project, “Bon Iver”, a kind of fictionalised French, carefully designed to create mystique. Take the album title “For Emma Forever Ago”. What does that even mean? That the idea of Emma has always existed? That their love belongs to the past and the future? How about those calculatingly academic and self-conscious song titles, The Wolves (Act I and II) and re: stacks with its studied lower case punctuation? Or those oh so educated references to “kumran” and “torah”? What about the carefully cultivated lyric sheet with its overfussy designation of narrator, him and her in For Emma, including the superfluous “so apropos”?




except this

Weird. One of the biggest reasons I like this is 'cause it's down to earth. I guess what you take for absurdity I take a whimsical, so there you go.

i really do like this review though, i just don't think your points against the album title, song titles, lyric booklet, etc. adds anything to your argument (in fact it really detracts from it). the last paragraph sums up your ideas more than efficiently enough.
