Blood Bank based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
This album starts so strong, with the title track, that one can hardly believe the downhill slide that follows it. Bon Iver starts with "Blood Bank," a haunting and melodic trip that will break the heart of even the most staunchly resolute; however, he follows that masterpiece with a steady decent in quality on the second track and then departs into digital cut-and-paste that is so overwhelmingly pro-tools altered that it loses all of its simple beauty and leaves listeners with a creepy empty feeling. If that's what you're looking for in an album, then pick it up, but don't go into this expecting the wonder that Bon Iver brought on his debut release, For Emma, Forever Ago.
