The sophomore effort from Justin Vernon is a stunner. I absolutely love his vocal style and it is still the lead "instrument" in this recording. Listening to this on headphones is an incredible experience as well, I hear something new with each listen. Obligatory comparisons would evoke the varied likes of Wilco, Sigur Ros, Jeff Buckley, Arcade Fire and yes even ELO. The only downside I see in this album is the very last track "Beth/Rest". It is a fine track on it's own but, to me, it does not fit in with the rest of the album at all. The first 2 tracks "Perth" and "Minnesota, WI" more than make up for this minor "flaw"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
