I'm listening to this now. The vocal delivery is definitely Dylan-esque.

And I must say that your writing has an artistic quality I can only wish my own would embody. Your diction and use of colorful metaphors result in reviews that are amazingly literary without being pretentious or pedantic. Nicely done!

Good review. I never got around to listening to this despite being a huge Bon Iver fan and hearing about TTMOE touring with Bon Iver. And i like Dylan a lot.

Looks like I'd do well to check this out.

If you like this, I highly recommend a band called French Quarter. Similar in their usage of understated drama.

One of the year's better albums, although I have to say I enjoyed him a lot more live. The Garden is a great track.

One of the years best albums (probably in the top 10-15). Nice review.

I actually didn't like this album, but this review makes me think I wasn't listening closely enough so I'll try again. Nice work.

it took me a little while to get into it also; i was initially turned off by matsson's voice (not a dylan fan, personally). but after seeing him in concert, i quickly changed my mind.
