Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Bonnie "Prince" Billy releases his 9th solo album, THE LETTING GO, which was recorded in Iceland by Valgier Sigurdsson. THE LETTING GO is a 13 track musical antidote and inspiration to love, life, and loneliness, while laughter is desired.

Amazon.com

Having long recorded as Palace Music or Palace, the enigmatic, elusive Bonnie "Prince" Billy continues to confound musical expectations. His latest may well be his loveliest, a series of meditations and tone poems on love and mortality, with the autumnal strains of a chamber quartet and the vocal counterpoint of Dawn McCarthy supporting Billy's tremulous expression of his surreal, stream-of-consciousness lyricism. Results range from the dreamy, bluesy "Cursed Sleep" and the evocation of a British madrigal on "No Bad News" to the discordant propulsion of "The Seedling" and the call and response of the folkish "Then the Letting Go." It all fits together in a manner that defies categorization and dares the listener to resist its aural seduction. --Don McLeese
