Album Review

Their second album in three years (even recorded at the same venue), IIIrd Tyme Out's follow-up to their wildly successful Live at the MAC exclusively contains the band's interpretations of other musicians' material, not too unusual in bluegrass but still a fine marker of the band's progress and standing.

The band's harmonies are so impassioned, though, that one forgets nearly as soon as the complaint begins to burble up.
