4.3 superbSowingSeason STAFF | August 9th 19

i, i retains the "Radiohead of folk" experimentation that I've come to expect from Mr. Vernon, and in the process crafts yet another delightfully gorgeous album. It's a little too much of the same on the heels of 22, A Million and Big Red Machine - and some of the melodies are a little too chirpy/spirited to feel genuine - but nitpicks aside, Bon Iver remains the standard against which indie folk acts are measured.

Sit next to a dovecote all day and you still wouldn't hear this much indistinct cooing

The audible recording for that feeling you get when you reach for what you think is a Sprite and it is actually water

4.5 superbfurpa | August 8th 19

People have been saying it resembles an amalgam of all previous albums thus far, and I think for the
most part that's true. Might bump this down based on how the album grows on me but so far it
definitely seems a worthy addition to the catalogue. Hey Ma & Faith are still incredibly affecting in
context.

Also much like 22AM, a number of these songs could benefit from being more fleshed out.

This is sick -- what a unique and imaginative release. Love that sample in iMi that sounds almost like a hissing furnace, and there keep being so many layers to focus on, one moment to the next. It all sounds so gooooood

4.5 superbAlex Stephenson | August 9th 19

The antithesis of For Emma, the antidote to the bleakness of Bon Iver's debut record. Although there are still matters that Vernon struggles with (organized religion gets targeted a few times), he seems to conclude that faith and hope can be procured from even the darkest places, and even after all the struggles of his life, as he proclaims in "Faith": "I'm not all out of mine".

If Vernon doesn't start writing real songs again and not this bee blop computer sounding shit I'm going to drive to Eau Claire and fight him in the street. Not really because he's my daughter's favorite artist, but you get the point.

3.5 greatLucman | August 9th 19

A beautiful ode to a wonderful career. This sounds like everything Justin Vernon
has been building up to, incorporating every aspect of his sound into a really
tasteful record.

What might have been lost does in fact bother me.

2.0 poorRik VII (sound-off ratings out of 10) | August 15th 19

This is mostly just terribly inoffensive. While that can be regarded as a step forward after the rather obnoxious 22 A Million, that doesn't account for much. There's hardly anything memorable about it, safe for Naeem and maybe Jelmore (both with interesting instrumentation), two songs that have their immense faults as well (Naeem's trite, dumb chorus and Jelmore not going anywhere). After two listens, there's nothing that genuinely makes me want to return to this. Moreover, the lack of personality downright annoys me. Not necessarily his worst, but the most redundant. - 3.5

4.5 superbIIAphelionII | August 13th 19

I enjoy this more than 22, M. And I really like that album. I probably enjoy it more than For Emma even. Just speaks to me clearly. I think it is written superbly aswell, and produced well too. Nothing Bon Iver does will likely ever strike me like CREEKS does though.rMy favorites are U (absolutely and totally disagree with Sowing on this one :D), Sh'Diah, iMi, raBi, salem, and Marion.

Bump

4.5 superbCurroSkywalker | August 12th 19

Better everytime. I think this is a candidate for the album of The year.

Bump

3.5 greatdedex | August 12th 19

So he listened to Frank Ocean and James Blake and decided to incorporate art pop into his
style. It's for sure better done than in 22, A Million. Some occasional moments are
absolutely marvelous, but this relies too much on what other artists have already created
for this to be called experimental. An enjoyable record nonetheless, but not one I will
regularly visit. 3.5

Bump

2.5 averageSonofSnow | August 10th 19

A supremely plodding regression after the wonderfully experimental and catchy "22, A Million"r
