Bon Iver - i,i

Yes, it is fair to compare this to James Blake's debut in the same way it was fair to compare '22, A Million' to Radiohead's 'Kid A' back in 2016. However, it lacks the emotional gruffness of it's inspiration which thrived in solitary confinement. You could make the argument that's not the direction 'i,i' is going for, in which I'd agree, but if so then it has the tendancy of being pretty aimless otherwise. The performances are top notch, as they always are with Bon Iver, but it's also too sophisticated and over polished to be considered raw in nature. Sometimes, Vernon's voice just doesn't work with what he's got going on either. It's a topsy-turvy collection of R&B, pop and electronic hybrids served on a heavenly platter.

A messy collage of pretty sounds. I'm sorry to disappoint y'all.

I do prefer 22, A Million if I'm honest.
