I don't want to spend too much time on this subject, but does someone care to share their reasons for liking Bon Iver? His voice is usually pretty annoying, the guitar bits aren't all that interesting, and the recording is pretty normal and not nearly echoey and log cabin-y enough. I've heard the sob story that usually comes with his record reviews, so spare me that.
An acquaintance once told me that she loves to fornicate to For Emma. Maybe she killed it before it had a chance to grow. My vote for overrated in 2008 goes to Bon (as she pronounced it) "eye"ver.
PS: As a responsible blogger, I've listened to the new Animal Collective. It rules, and maybe I'll talk about it later, but for now, that's all.
