good? as good as 'for emma...'?
but not that good.
The first track ("Blood Bank") is stunning - the last track is nothing short of awful....
He really does have to show he's not just a one trick pony and does it brilliantly there I think
I really like Babys though.
"I got Bon Iver's 'Blood Bank' today..."
And you are asking everyone else if it is good...
the last track that is, and the person that said that it shows he isnt a one trick pony is right on the nose.
Its fantastic, and quite an interesting change of direction in places
not great, For Emma is MUCH better
and different/brave a vocoder is always risky and he used it much better then Kanye
I kind of think he should quit while he's ahead. My understanding is that he didn't really plan to write 'For Emma...' it just happened, and now he's actually trying to write more songs in the same vein, they're just not gonna match up.
For Emma was easily one of the best albums ever, but that doesn't mean he should quit! Fans should just expect change, take Blood Bank as a next step..
like woods, tis gorgeous.
it's fairly shit yeah
blood bank is good, but much better live where it's rocked the fuck up and has an epic malkmus-esque solo.
the two songs in the middle are indistinguishable from each other, and the vocoder experiment is just bleh.
i reckon the last track is pretty coo, although it is a bit Heap-eque fo sho.
