The second instalment of Will Oldham songs recorded under his nom de plume of Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Ease Down The Road finds Oldham playing his quintessential role as the crack-voiced acoustic troubadour. He is backed by a drunken choir and a rickety orchestra--featuring, among others, brother Ned Oldham, avant-garde director Harmony Korine, Papa M's David Pajo and a gaggle of long-time musical comrades from Oldham's first group, Palace. In comparison to the first Bonnie "Prince" album--the spectral I See A Darkness--the mood is warm, playful and concerned mainly with love, infidelity and the joys of the flesh; "She's a fine looking lady, and she likes to go down on me", croaks Oldham on "A King At Night", "And I like to go down on her too..." Lewdness aside, though, there's much to recommend Oldham's latest incarnation as a serious artist, rather than some lo-fi freak, suitable only for a niche audience; the lazy, sleep-encrusted love balladry of "Break Of Day" drags on the cast-offs of a raggedly clothed Bob Dylan, while "After I Made Love To You" gently embraces the gospel tradition--albeit, a gospel to the joys of infidelity, with Oldham whispering of "doing something filthy/in a rented room tonight". He's made better albums, but Ease Down The Road finds this lo-fi Lothario reclining into a comfortably gritty middle age. --Louis Pattison

Format: Audio CD
In my mind I see Ease down the road as the greatest album of the twenty first yet. A work of chilling lyrical genius sung by the best voice(s) in todays music world. The album never misses a beat, it's dark, crooning, joyus and uplifting at the same time as it carelessly swings from tune to tune. From the swaggering majesty of A king at night to the darkly driven Grand dark feeling of emptiness this album just keeps on delivering. Some of the most lazy and wonderful harmonies appear backed by the full band, but they easily drift away to songs such as Carless love were Will Oldham literally hypnotises you with his voice alone. A true work of genius on par with anything he's done before. Perhaps the most instantly accsesible of his albums it's a great starting point for people new to the world of Will Oldham.
This Album I recomend to anyone with ears.

I am not sure if this would suit the casual listener; perhaps sounding downbeat or pedestrian if approached casually, but definitely rewards patience or those familiar with his oeuvre. Parallels, in an Appalachian style, a lot of English folk in my opinion. I'll never get bored of this one.

Ease Down The Road is an absolute must buy cd.
Will Oldham always speaks from the heart and each song delivers heart felt lyrics.
All of the songs on this cd are superb.
I like to listen to this (and all of the other BPB cd's that I own)late at night with the lights down low, glass of wine in hand.
Excellent and highly recommended.

Will Oldham is a strange bloke to say the least. In this album, where there's love all he can see is depravity. Oddly, these are the bits he seems to like most of all. The songs are beautifully crafted, but like 'Break of Day' there is a sick pleasure lying underneath. He has a unique slant on love, and darkness is his forte. It's incredibly powerful and eerie, in stark contrast to the sweet music he makes. 'Careless Love' is as rich as anything by Chris Issak, it just happens to have been made by, quite possibly, his evil twin. Oldham has always had a knack of crafting simple tunes intertwined with wonderfully dark lyrics. This truly is his darkest hour, and it's all the better for it.
