Brittle yet soft

Possibly Bonnie "Prince" Billy's most perfect album yet, slips out virtually unnoticed, with a very muted fanfare, unlike last year's 'Beware' which seemed to get quite a lot of attention, and yet was mildly disappointing compared to his previous releases like 'Lie Down In The Light' and 'The Letting Go'.

This LP is crisp and brittle yet soft and soothing at the same time. 8 of the 10 tracks are Prince Billy stunners - 'Where Wind Blows' and 'Kids' are early standouts for me.

Best yet

I think this is the best so far,a gentle and understated album with over half of the tracks real standouts.No bells & whistles for the release of this one but for an under the radar job it's great.

love him

I love bonnie prince billy, i find he's music relaxing and peaceful, would have to say the letting go album is my favourite, but all of his albums are good, worth a purchase if you like this sort of music :)
