CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

Callahan has nothing to add to the general conversation about music in 2011 but is making the best albums of his career.

Drowned in Sound

His latest LP is as reliably fine as a new film from the Coen Brothers.

Apocalypse is certainly less accessible than its predecessor, perhaps even wilfully so.

No Ripcord

Callahan continues to be a nature’s poet, painting his imagery with the most carefully detailed observations of the everyday.

The songwriting on “Apocalypse” focuses more on storytelling than any other album of Callahan’s. The song structures are also widened alongside these stories, making for a ‘longer’ but more condensed album experience.

Right where the alternative country ends and the desert rock begins, Bill Callahan has delimited his musical boundaries, determined not to overcome them, no matter the cost or the pressure.

Simple musical palette, gorgeous instrumentation: a wonderful setting-in-motion. One of Bill's finest projects.

Riding for the Feeling was #11 on Pitchfork's Best 200 songs of the decade list, probably as a token placement because they needed to have one shred of indie credibility left.
