 I would never call it a fault when someone is working within a certain stylistic frame that is definitely one´s own. For example, the overrated simple "pleasures" of Franz Ferdinand are full of repetitions (but, sorry, without any kind of personal style). So, what Will Oldham and Matt Sweeney have achieved, is a fresh continuation of the standards Will Oldham has once set with "Master and Everyone" and early Palace albums. And it makes forget his ridiculous move into last year´s "Greatest Palace Music" (which was an "interesting" way of downplaying the magic of his old tunes). "Superwolf" is wonderful, dark and touching!
