He layers his vocal harmonies, while a gently strummed acoustic rhythm guitar just about holds the centre.

Carey, a jazz drummer from UW–Eau Claire, was a fan of the album, and had approached Vernon at one of his first performances. While at the cabin, Vernon had written to Kelly Crisp of The Rosebuds, concluding his letter with "bon iver," a misspelling of "bon hiver," which is French for "good winter.For Emma, Forever Ago is a summation of Vernon's life events at the time, ranging from "lost love and longing" to mediocrity. Deusner, who praised Vernon's "soulful performance," describing the record as "a ruminative collection of songs full of natural imagery and acoustic strums—the sound of a man left alone with his memories and a guitar. In the United Kingdom, the album debuted at number 42 on the UK Albums Chart; it was later certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) for sales of over 100,000 copies. Now there is only a "crack" these places, but the lines can still be heard and the rhythm/flow doesn't change. You could use reference points such as Smog, TV On The Radio, Sufjan Stevens and Iron and Wine to get some idea of where you are about to go yet Bon Iver aka Justin Vernon always seems to add a little bit extra.

By the start of the spring thaw he had recorded the bulk of this stunning debut, originally self-issued to acclaim last year in the USA and now picked up for a British release. Two mics, a guitar, two drums, some instrumental flourishes and some effects were all that was used to create something so soaring and passionate it's hard to believe it was born from somewhere so cut off. He considered this method a "back-door way," as they fit more to his unintelligible syllables than words. He had listened to Vienna Boys' Choir recordings months prior, which inspired him to incorporate choral arrangements into his work.

Some people said they experienced the same thing, some said they'd never experienced those problems on their versions. crazy that 500 people put this ONLY colored record for this release on their wantlist, and it doesn't even exist. He felt the titular "Emma" was evocative of "a statement, a sentiment and a closing of my own history. The album's touring cycle lasted two years, ending in late 2009, and visited several countries and music festivals worldwide. Vernon felt comfortable performing the album live, though it was very personal: "It's weird that I'm still behind these songs," he told PopMatters.
