    Went with 22 because I listened to it once and thought I'd never put it on again. Nowadays its the only one I put on and I love it a ton. Might have to go through his discog today.

    For Emma still holds the top spot for me, but you can't really go wrong with any choice. Love the VC stuff, and liked a lot of the BRM record.

    BI, BI because it's the album that turned me from a fan to a super fan. I went into it completely blind, bought the CD from Best Buy and hit play in the parking lot. I can still remember being blown away the first time I heard Perth in that BB parking lot.

    Relayted is so fucking good. I adore that album so much. The Doomtree remixes are wonderful.

    Onward, Progress, or so it seems

    22, A Million is a masterpiece. I remember the first time I heard Creeks it gave me chills.

    BI, BI is incredible, but 22 (and the album cycle that followed) is absolutely the sound of an artist finding and believing in the uniqueness of his songwriting, blazing a trail that no other artist could possibly imitate. It’s an absolute masterpiece.

    I went self-titled by a narrow margin over 22, A Million, but that's due in part to having spent more with the former.

    Bon Iver, Bon Iver by a pretty wide margin for me. Perth alone puts it above the rest.

    Edit: I need to give 22, A Million another listen. I wasn’t feeling it outside of the Fionn Regan sample the few times I listened in 2016.
