Not quite a "Brick", but close

Don't get me wrong. I am and continue to be a big Greencards fan. I've purchased all their records, seen them live, and friended them on Facebook. I've been waiting anxiously for this new record for some time.

But now, I'm disappointed. To these ears, it's not up to the melodic beauty of their other records. Just listen to the first three songs off Fascination, and try to find three similar classics on this one. On this whole record, the only song I felt was memorable was Here Lies John. The instrumental before that, Adelaide, was brilliant and could easily receive them their third Grammy nomination. But the other songs seemed more like fragments of partially conceived ideas that never really gelled. You can really tell what you are missing when the hidden track, the last song on the record, plays "Bury Me Beneath The Willow". It's a traditional classic bluegrass song, covered by many artists. This is songwriting, and unfortunately they recorded it using a tricky mono technique to sound old fashioned, so it doesn't sound great on nice headphones.

The positives...the Greencards are brilliant musicians and arrangers, and that still holds true. The sound is impeccable as usual, and Carol's singing is still superb...although I missed hearing a Kym song.

So there you have it. I just don't see most of these songs getting as much response live in concert as their older material, and don't think these will stand the test of time.

Their best record yet!

The best record yet that the Greencards have released IMO. The tracks featuring Vince Gill and Sam Bush are awesome!!

Awesome

Waited a long time it seems for new music from the Greencards and they do not disappoint!. The song Tale of Kangario is a great track but I am not sure you can beat Carole's voice on Far from an Only Child and Naked on the River.

Biography

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s

Texas contemporary bluegrass trio the Greencards are aptly named. After coming to the realization that their English and Australian homelands were not so conducive to their uniquely American style of music, mandolin player Kim Warner, fiddler Eamon McLoughlin, and bass player Carol Young took their love of Ricky Skaggs and Bob Dylan, mixed it with a little Fairport Convention and David Bowie, and began hitting clubs in the Lone Star State. By 2004 they had earned themselves the Best New Band award...
