Album Review: 22, A Million by Bon Iver


Reviewed by: Sophie Nagel
Score: 9.5/10

Bon Iver who is an artist that I never thought would’ve create an album like this. His first album which I was not a fan of, was more natural and contained less electrical beats. Now his new album, 22, A Million, gives you everything you could’ve wanted and more. He hit it on the mark with his new inventive electric beats he used and then meshed his voice in with it.

Each song off of this album has an interesting name. He has always been one to choose weird track names but I think that is something that makes this album even more remarkable. Even the album art, with the random symbols, intrigued me to hear it. I believe that he pulled out all of the stops for this album.

The first two singles off of this album, 22 (OVER S∞∞N) and 10 d E A T h b R E e s T ⚄ ⚄ , really represents this album as a whole. He puts so much emotion in his albums that it makes me want to cry when listening to it. So if you don’t know if you will like his new stuff, I would recommend listening to those tracks first. Other than those songs some other favorites of mine would have to be: 33 “GOD”, 666 t, and 8 (circle). My favorites were very hard to choose, so I would definitely recommend to listen to the whole album.

FCC: None
RIYL: Fleet Foxes, Iron & Wine, Band of Horses, Sufjan Stevens
Favorite Tracks: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8
