    The entire thing is an absolute, unerring joy.

    Wolfroy Goes to Town haunts you quietly, in a private way that is, somehow, all the more devastating.

    A confounding and bewitching set of songs that feels gloriously out of time. [Dec 2011, p.100]

    Wolfroy goes to Town is a meditative and sparse collection, and much of it continues the same train thought at work in the "There is no God" b/w "God is Love" single. [#82, p. 52]

    Bonnie Prince Billy shows no sign of slowing down his slowness, despite, or perhaps because of, the misery. [Nov 2011, p.56]

    More than the last few albums, Wolfroy rewards this kind of close relationship between listener and performer.
  7. Its biggest problem is that, from start of finish, it feels strangely reserved.
