    As a big fan of BPB, I was dissapointed upon listening to this album. I have seen seen him live three times, last time at McCabe's in Santa Monica touring Superwolf- what a wonderful show...Will is quiet a prolific artist, Summer in the Southeast sound like a parody of his work- a deconstruction of the beauty and simplicity he seeks to create in his albums.

Summer in the Southeast sounds more like a drunken time with pals, which is fun but certainly not his best or even a 10! Expand

    Just sloppy enough to make the magic seem magical--when they don't simply sound sloppy. [18 Nov 2005, p.135]
  2. Instead of amplifying and strengthening the already delicate structure of his songs, Oldham and company strangely strip the songs of any emotion.
  3. This is a live album the way it ought to be produced: sincere and surprising, a true alternative to your well-worn copies of the studio recordings.
