So I gave quite a few listens to this record, and I must say: I'm extremely impressed. From the yin & yang cover to the schizophrenic song titles, I thought this album was going to be a letdown of hipster bullshit. However I was very surprised by the band's experimental and electronic take on folk music, one which I do not believe has been done as well as this.
Additionally, this is the first Bon Iver album that feels like it was created by the whole band, not just Justin Vernon. There are chord progressions, production changes, and multiple other singers found on 22, A Million that was not on For Emma or S/T. Energy rushes through every single track on this project, and this has become one of my most recently revisited albums from this year ever since I first listened.
I wouldn't go as far to say this is a masterpiece; it's not even my favorite album from the group. This is a very unique and necessary album for 2016, the first from this year that I can wholeheartedly say respectively differs from the rest of what has been put out so far.
