Oh wow, a singer/songwriter dicked around in FL Studio and decided they're Richard D James. That's pretty crazy.

Pretentious window dressing aside, these two tracks aren't very good. He's trying too hard to make fairly simplistic songs sound complicated. I'm concerned about the direction of this album, but I'm still looking forward to hearing the finished product.

This blog of the songs has me with a real Marge Simpson hrmmmm thought on it all.

Bon Iver Debut New Album in Concert: Live Blog | Pitchfork

It feels somewhat like an elaborate troll... Vernon does whatever the hell he wants and I think he enjoys the tongue-in-cheek sticking it to people. Over Soon has some really nice elements to it but throws in an annoying James Blake pitch-shifted vocal that immediately puts me offside and the repeating "ohh" is very annoying, just like what ruins Heavenly Father. Deathbreast is worse, there are electronic artists out there doing the crunchy, glitchy electro well and this is not it. Along with the blog it all seems to suggest we're going to get quite a dissonant, much more electronic, industrial album.

Bon Iver

The first song is good, second one is okay.
This was not the direction I was hoping that he would head into, but I'll wait for final judgement until 09/30.

Yeah this song is amazing.
22 Over Soon is really good too, but I still haven't been able to get into Deathbreast.

The drone in the Over Soon annoys the shit out of me, and Deathbreast is shit but 33 God makes up for it all.

My rankings for the songs:
Over Soon - 8.5/10
Deathbreast - 7.5/10
33 God - 10/10

I've listened to the whole album already through some Eau Claire bootlegs. I'm not going to rank those yet cause I haven't heard the studio versions, obviously. But 8(circle) is going to be one of his best tracks ever.

7.5 is a weirdly high ranking for a song you haven't been able to get into.

I've liked it more lately after some more listens. Last week I probably would have given it a 5 or 6. I consider 7/7.5 to be decent. 8/8.5 to be good/really good. 9/9.5 great. 10 amazing. It's probably somewhere in 7/7.5 range for me. Decent song. I don't feel a super strong opinion about it right now. Definitely has less listens than both of the other songs.
That ranking may change once the album comes out, too. It's only been a week, so my rankings are still pretty fluid on some songs. However, I feel pretty strongly about 33 God.
