Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago

While every album is a product of time and place, For Emma, Forever Ago is more than most.  The work of Justin Vernon, who made the record whilst spending three months alone in a log cabin in Northeast Wisconsin; living off the land, splitting wood, and hunting for food.  And although this wasn't the archetypal spell in the wilderness that many artists seek out, some very special music was born out of the experience. For Emma, Forever Ago truly is a timeless record.
