    [A] gorgeous concert recording. [No. 111, p.54]

    It’s as communal as a set of campfire songs, complete with humor, screw-ups and familiarity.

    As ever, there's great appeal in his stage patter, where he tests the tension between catharsis and awkwardness.... But he never skimps on emotion. [Sep 2014, p.74]

    Live at Biko is quick to remind us that Benji is as much a comedy as tragedy, at times forcefully so.

    Thoroughly exhausting, but highly rewarding, Kozelek’s recent work is some of the most rewarding of his career, Live at Biko proving no exception.

    If you’re a Kozelek disciple, the songs on Live at Biko won’t give you further insight into the love, lust, humor, and sadness that make him tick, but the dialogue sure will.
