    By now, if you're a music fan, you probably already heard this record. And you already know, Bon Iver is an album of complete thoughts, beautiful poetic wordplay over an ocean of turbulent chords (lyric example: "armour let it through, brought the arboretic truth you kept posing" Just wow). Vernon described it as the spring to For Emma's summer, and endless outlets have described it in waves of adjectives and run-on sentences worthy of a Henry James novel.
