Interesting thoughts.
How did you hear the album? I've seen a few low quality leaks floating around the Bon Iver sub forum on Reddit and obviously there's the Eau Claire bootlegs, but I want it hear it in high quality (and I've already pre-ordered it on Amazon), so I'll wait it out.

Bon Iver

The leak I heard was fine, not great. It sounded like 160 transcoded to 320. Some minor compression when it got loud. I don't blame anyone for waiting, but it wasn't bad enough to preclude someone from making an opinion either.

I'm reasonably drunk, but I loved that. And I think when you love an artist you love their releases that little bit more, so I love it and think my love for it will grow. 33 god and 8 circle the picks of the bunch for mine on first listen. 666 upside down t also very good.

Looking forward to hearing this over the weekend. I was going to get tickets for his show here but ended up passing, which I'm starting to regret now.

Gets a 9 nine from Pitchfork lol. Not that I've heard it yet. My expectations are pretty low though.

I just found out a high school friend of mine played in the saxophone ensemble on the album and at the Eau Claire festival. Neat!

Curious to hear this. Not sure what to expect.

It is odd how people's interest in him seems to have dropped off so precipitously. I'm in the same boat - I can't be bothered to care about this album, but I really don't know why. Probably the obnoxiousness of the tracklisting is a piece of it.

I'm looking forward to hearing this again. My first listen was good but didn't leave me all that impressed.

I'm quite underwhelmed, to tell the truth. I admire the artistry in it, but the album leaves me pretty cold. It sounds like the intro to a much better album that never really starts, if that makes sense.

I can hear that, actually. This has to be the lowest stakes "artistic leap" I've ever heard. He somehow managed to make an album that ticks every beard folk box out there while doing just enough with the production to make people think it's some bold artistic statement.

My super hi-fi listen didn't go well either. I actually liked the leak more because it made the objectively bad mixing easier to tolerate. No idea what he was thinking with some of the ear-scraping noise he throws all over the place. This ain't Yeezus.

But regardless of what one thinks of the music, I think we can all agree that the song titles are fucking stupid. I can't even talk about the album properly because the tracklisting looks like a 6 year old set the font to Wingdings.

What's so hard about that? Apex Twin has been doing it for years. Half his previous song titles were imaginary places.

Bon Iver

I know how to read them and can detect an obvious Richard D James influence, but they're still more of a distraction than another way of illuminating the meaning of these songs, which is what a title ought to do if It's not helpful in identifying the song. Titling the songs so obscurely ultimately draws attention to his electronic influences instead of the lyrics.

But hey, at least I didn't write off the album based on the song titles like people in The Other Place do every U2 album cycle.

Much like the previous album I doubt I'll commit the titles to memory really.
