Customer Review

on 24 February 2009
We should thank Will Oldham for leaving no reasons, just a series of trails: Palace Brothers, Palace Music, Palace Songs. And I think there was once a Palace Brothers.
As Bonnie Prince Billy he has made some incredible records that, if he wanted to, would make him a Neil Young or Dylan for our times: Ease Down The Road, I See A Darkness and The Letting Go. But there's always a sideshow of one offs and off the cuff records too: Superwolf, Lay Down In The light etc. I can't work out exactly why - I think it's something to do with him not wanting to play the game but all credit to him for keeping us on our toes. Whatever, the most important news is Beware, whatever game he's playing, is probably his greatest work to date. The sound throughout is intimate, confident and clear. Pedal steel and what sounds like a small gospel choir accompany Oldham's startling singing

The fact three songs have You in the title and three more start with I, and three again have Me tells you more than my attempts at understanding the lyrics. The point is this is a personal, beautiful almost hallowed, mysterious record.

Live in these songs and let them seep through you into as teh days get longer
