    My friend told me about this album, and he knows his stuff like no other. Listened to it and love it. Not quite as talented as the Avett brothers, but being 2nd to them is not bad. Good album. Liked his last one better.

  1. Be Set Free isn't a game-changing album so much as it confirms that Langhorne Slim's talent can work within a wider framework than he's used in the past and still honor his gifts, and it's an impressive, pleasurable work.
  2. Be Set Free is the musical equivalent of a green bean casserole. It’s not going be anyone’s favorite dish at the table, but everyone, young and old, will want a second helping.

    Slim aims for the gut but usually ends up hitting the hips; either way, his relentlessly cloying lyrics ensure that Be Set Free is more suitable for soundtracks and square dances than headphones.
