50 Best Albums of 2011


Bon Iver, 'Bon Iver'

Bon Iver, 'Bon Iver'

The second album from Wisconsin's Justin Vernon thrives in an unlikely sweet spot between Nick Drake and Peter Cetera. Bon Iver deploys horns, banjos and Auto-Tune amid Vernon's Möbius-strip lyrics, which luxuriate in emotional vagueness. Vernon's private world is a soft-rock heaven of the mind.
