BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY BewareWill Oldham, aka Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, has left the path of introspective and inaccessible warbling that would occasionally drench his previous efforts.

With Beware he is firmly on the straight and narrow and has made his most straight-forward yet complete sounding record to date, Country through-and-through, Beware shares a lot with Neil Young's slower moments from his heyday, Fiddle and pedal steel punctuate the poetic lyrics over sparse, warm drums.

The haunting "Heart's Arms" is as good a lost love song as any and every track has a '70s country stamp on it; It's an accomplished album with a rare longevity factor that will get play for years to come.
