Satisfies without tumbling the mystique.

I'm not sure if this will appeal to those who merely like Bonnie Prince Billy but for those like myself who listen to him on a daily basis it was almost perfect. It's constantly amusing and revealing without spearing daggers into the songs. It gives you information you never had but still allows you to wonder.
The whole thing about BPB being weird in interviews is also a myth. Many of the interviews I have listened to or read in recent years are quite similar to the way the book approaches things, in a conversational way. Perhaps it says more about the more mainstream magazines than the artist. In 20 years when the work is treated with the respect it deserves I am sure this myth will still exist.
