Sep 19, 2019When We Are Inhuman is a fabulous album. It will reward and enrich fans and casual listeners of Bonnie "Prince" Billy, murder ballads, and contemporary classical music and that is some achievement. It will also open the door into the world of Julius Eastman and may afford him some long overdue recognition.
Sep 19, 2019Eastman’s music has steadily accrued new champions over the past decade, and it’s gratifying to see another high-profile inclusion of one of his vital works. But in general, this confusion is endemic to the project, which is full of excellent performances of strong repertoire without a lot of obvious common ground.
Sep 19, 2019His devoted followers/collectors will find plenty to like here in this convergence of talents, as this group's interpretations of the murder ballads work as well as their new takes on the Oldham originals. ... Less dedicated fans who prefer to cherry-pick the best releases which float to the top of Oldham's flowing river of output may want to keep waiting, as this is more of a compelling curiosity than a cohesive album.
