This is just gorgeous. I'm worried that i'm a bit to obsessed with it at the moment, i almost can't bring myself to listen to anything else, even the four other albums i've bought since this one. it is just so...right. justin vernon's voice is excellent, one of those sort-of-falsetto voices that is beautifully sweet, not a screeching bee gees or mika strangled cat sound, but a soft, deeply felt loveliness. standout tracks are skinny love, blindsided, creature fear, and for emma, but every note on this album is great. well worth purchasing.
