Dan Glover A modern classic for a reason. I've probably paid for this album about four times on various formats and I have absolutely no regrets. Utterly astounding every time.

jmanj0sh It's so raw and beautiful, by far the most down to earth, and most phenomenal indie-folk album ever for me. Favorite track: For Emma.

Jen I'm a firm believer that music is of a time so, although this album has been out for a while, it's only resonating with me now. Completely consumed by Bon Iver at the moment. Favorite track: Skinny Love.

about

We are thrilled to release Bon Iver's debut full-length 'For Emma, Forever Ago'. Bon Iver (pronounced: bohn eevair; French for "good winter" and spelled wrong on purpose) is a greeting, a celebration and a sentiment. It is a new statement of an artist moving on and establishing the groundwork for a lasting career. 'For Emma, Forever Ago' is the debut of this lineage of songs. As a whole, the record is entirely cohesive throughout and remains centered around a particular  aesthetic, prompted by the time and place for which it was recorded. Justin Vernon, the primary force behind Bon Iver, seems to have tested his boundaries to the maximum, and in doing so has managed to break free from any pre-cursing or finished forms.
