Format: MP3 Music
A far cry from the lush country arrangements of yesteryear, this is a whole new Bonnie, though still lovable and eerily familiar. He's back to making albums under his own, um, name, minus Cairo Gang. The esteemed Emmett Kelly is still in tow however, along with Angel Olsen (of Babblers "fame"). The results are fantastic, but not at all like Wonder Show, nor Beware, Lie Down in the Light, or The Letting Go. Spare and dark, yet complex and ultimately uplifting, Wolfroy Goes to Town requires multiple close listens to unravel its beauty and complexity. Lead single, Quail and Dumplings, is one exception: a lush, inviting tune, but with lyrics that invoke hardship as well as hope (we got empty tummies/but that won't always be).

If you have liked any prior works of Will Oldham, you'll find something to like here. If you're expecting the full country arrangements of his last couple of albums, you won't find much of that. But you will find some comfortingly familiar voices, and songs that you won't soon forget.

Okay, we ALL know how prolific Bonnie Prince Billy is all throughout his career. I don't know...I just can't explain it and I'm speechless. How the, HOW??? HOW did he make something THIS GORGEOUS after being on the scene THIS LONG? I mean other artists would be exhausted by now if they were him! Wells got to dry out eventually, right? Words cannot describe this music. That cliche I just typed can't describe this music. I'm not even going to go into any detail. I'm just...oh my I'm dumbstruck. This man can do no wrong. Just listen and imbibe on the imminent and enigmatic beauty that is this shiny new BPB record, and be as astounded as I am at the originality and perfection all these years later. This one's gonna spin for a long time...

I can't say enough good about this album and the works of Will. However, you will have to listen to this at least twenty times to even begin to fathom its depths. I'll leave that for you to do and say, Get this, get them all, and listen until it strikes the depths in you. If that does not happen, I wonder about your humanity.

There are times Billy seems to get whether uneven and by that I mean you never know what to expect from one Billy recording to the next. Years ago there was an interview with Nick Cave about music he listened to or found good and he said Bonnie Prince Billy and The Dirty Three, both coming from very different musical directions. Both are minimalists. This cd by Billy rates among his best (The Letting Go, I see a darkness), with Billy, you never know quite sure which direction he's heading, in this one he's going towards his best material ever. If you are a fan of Billy 'darkness' and 'letting go' material, this one is for you. If you like his more country music oriented material, stay away from this one.
