4.0 excellentNeutralThunder12 | September 4th 10

On the "Woman King" EP, Sam Beam shows that he is one of the strongest forces in indie/folk. While sometimes to subtle for it's own good, the arrangements, whether they be combinations of piano and violin, or banjo and guitar, are simply handled beautifully. While Beam is definitely not at his lyrical best on here, he showcases the precision of his angelic vocals throughout every track, and his melodies are more unique and interesting than ever. A quick EP that's great for listening on quiet stormy nights, and while not Beam's best offering, it's something that contains some of his best talent, especially in terms of the vocals and virtuous guitar playing. Highlights include "Woman King", "Evening on the Ground" and "Grey Stables". Definitely a sweet EP.

how is Sam Beam not known? that is what i want to know. he should be there with Jack Johnson and James Blunt. I can see many people loving this guy/band, whatever you call him. This cd has 6 good songs, 0 bad ones. Jezebel and Freedom Hangs Like Heaven should be on the radio 24/7. im not ussualy a radio music kind of guy but this sounds like it could be a hit. expecially Jezebel.
also, his image does not match his voice, or style of music. which isnt a bad thing by any means

I came across the Woman King EP quite some time ago but never listened to it until a few months ago. It definitely holds some of my most favorite songs from Iron & Wine and is really giving me something to look forward too for their next full-length release. The use of new instruments and the more blunt messages in his lyrics are something new to me that I can honestly say that "I'm not hating it." This EP is really something special and the anticipation is really building...
