AllMusic Review by

With his gentle guitar picking and detailed lyrics of heartfelt relationships from yesteryear, Bonnie Prince Billy is actually Will Oldham taking a break from his full-time Palace project. But what makes this alias solo project impossible to separate from the aforementioned band is Oldham's distinctive vocals that never stop cracking. But this "Peter Brady syndrome" is part of his appeal for both Palace and Bonnie Prince Billy -- the later of which also carries a rocking influence of Neil Young. Best listened to alone with all the lights out.
