Album Review

While they're inarguably superb pickers well versed in bluegrass traditions, the Infamous Stringdusters have always been a group eager to push at the accepted boundaries of the genre, and 2017's Laws of Gravity, their seventh studio album, exists in a middle ground between progressive bluegrass and contemporary singer/songwriter sensibilities. The 13 tracks give the players plenty of room to show off their skills, but the Stringdusters have clearly devoted plenty of energy to their songwriting, and Laws of Gravity is full of compact narratives about remarkable lives ("Maxwell," "Black Elk"), grand adventures ("1901: A Canyon Odyssey," "Back Home"), and the ups and downs of a well-lived life ("This Ol' Building," "Freedom," "A Hard Life Makes a Good Song"). The Stringdusters put enough focus on the songwriting for Laws of Gravity that they brought in a handful of guest writers for these tunes, though the results still bear their sonic signature, and the efforts at better storytelling don't mean they've cut back on the soloing. All the ingredients in Laws of Gravity are top-shelf, even if the Stringdusters jam longer than needed on several tracks.

This IS Fresh

Dear jepjoker,
I have never written a review or commented on Amazon, but I just had to reply to you when I saw your comment. PLEASE do your research before posting negative comments like this. It would be one thing if you were just being hateful, going around giving artists 1 star (because you must know it affects their average rating), but you actually don't know what you're talking about. This is NOT THE JOHN MAYER SONG. So, no you did not hear it 8 years ago. Next time you project your negativy on an artist, please do your research first.

Excellence. Again

It seems as if these guys are incapable of making anything other than fantastic music. Just such a pleasure to listen to, perfect for helping one to forget and tune out all the bad news of today's world.


This new album is excellent, as is all of the 'Dusters albums. jepjoker obviously didn't even listen. Apparently he/she has noting better to do than troll the iTunes Store.

Formed in 2006, and drawing on the talents of then up-and-coming Nashvillians Andy Hall, Chris Eldridge, Chris Pandolfi, Jeremy Garrett, Jesse Cobb, and Travis Book, the Infamous Stringdusters managed to balance a fluency in old-timey bluegrass with indie jamgrass sensibilities. They released their first album, Fork in the Road, on Sugar Hill in early 2007, which resulted in three awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association later that year. An eponymous sophomore effort arrived in 2008,...
