iTunes Review

It's a good thing for bluegrass fans that Newfound Road’s frontman Tim Shelton chose the road less traveled as Newfound Road’s fifth studio album finds him soulfully crooning his best performances to date. Right from the rich and rootsy opener “Try to Be,” Shelton confidently drives and locks in with perfect chorus harmonies while the band picks at a steady locomotive pace. Swooning serenade “Same Old Place” is a top-shelf ballad that would well accompany the making of babies. The bare gospel harmonies alone on “Give Me Jesus” could melt the Oak Ridge Boys’ hearts like butter on corn. The bonus track bestows a stellar rendition of the traditional “Leave My Woman Alone” showing that the quartet is a true force to be reckoned with in any live setting. By blending Shelton’s contemporary country vocal style with Newfound Road’s adoration for traditional stringband instrumentation, Same Old Place dodges the old-timey trappings to birth an album that succeeds at furthering the development of an age-old sound while retaining absolute respect for the roots of their craft.

Fantastic example of why NFR is one of the Hottest bands in bluegrass!

I have all of the NFR albums and this one is by far, my favorite! From the opening lines of "Try to Be" to the bonus track, "Leave My Woman Alone" you will get caught-up in the musicianship of all the members of the band, along with Tim's incredible vocals! I am a bluegrass fan, but any country fan would love this project, too because of Tim's rich tone and interpretation! If you buy any album this year, make sure it's the NFR album--"Same Old Place!" Congrats, NFR, you've got a WINNER on your hands!!

Same old Newfound goodness

This CD is very similar to there other CD's. The band puts on a clinic on how to mix great picking, strumming, and whatever else, with outstanding vocal harmony. Just like their past CD's every song is worth listening to. Simply the best contemporary bluegrass around. A great acappella piece, a quick instrumental, and the rest is a good mix of tempo. If you like their past CD's, you'll like this one just as much. It is not a repeat of their past CD's, but the band clearly knows what works. If it ain't broke....

Not the "same old " bluegrass!!!!

In my opinion, if this kind of music is new to you, this is a great album to start with. NFR has a sound that cuts to the heart of bluegrass, but doesn't alienate the crossover fan. Their sound is pure and easy to hear. Tim Shelton's vocals are impressive to say the least. They don't get carried away with warp speed breaks, but instead pull together solos that add feeling to the song. i think most bands care more about how many notes they can squeeze in instead of playing in a way that will move the listener. These are songs that tend to get stuck in your head.

I saw Newfound Road in concert last night. WOW These are guys that truly love what they do. They looked like they were having as much fun as the audience. Oh yeah, they sold all the cds that they had with them. I drove 180 miles one way to see them and I would probably drive 300 more to see them again. They did the old Dave Loggins song "Please Come To Boston" . It was way cool.
