Pretty good. I kind of feel like he's trying too hard to encapture that Bon Iver sound. I liked that unique sound he found on TWWK and Gold Rush-- because it was undeniably Ace. I don't know if I'm making sense here, but to me, it just sounds very forced.
I get the feeling he's just trying something different, while still holding onto the same love of music he's always had. The two tracks I've heard so far have got me extremely hyped for this album.
