Bon Iver, For Emma, Forever Ago (2007)
Alicia Keys: "There's a simplicity and vulnerability in Justin Vernon's voice that's very easy to listen to. I love this debut album because it feels so lyrically intimate and like there's no one and nothing between you and it. No distracting production to take you away from the feeling. 'Skinny Love,' 'Flume,' and 'Blindsided' are some of the tracks I love."
