I don't think the Skinny Love cover is that bad. There's something so untouchable about that Bon Iver album that no cover will come close, but this is a solid attempt and most Gaslight fans should be happy to have it.

Agreed, but I'm confused what you mean by "that" Bon Iver album? I feel like as amazing as For Emma is, Bon Iver, Bon Iver is almost universally liked more?

Also I like the cover, the echo is an odd touch, but it's growing on me. Easily the best Bon Iver cover I've ever heard.

I think they're both loved universally. I meant that it's hard to recreate the raw passion from For Emma. That's such a non-studio album, you know? So creating a really polished version of a raw, barely produced song might throw some people off.
