Customer Reviews

Love it

There are so many things that are great about this album, but the one thing that stands out is Michael Daves ability to bring Chris Thile out of his refined shell into punch-you-in-the-eardrum roughness vocally & instrumentally. I love that this album sounds like you're sitting in at Rockwood for an evening and you get to hear strings buzzing, one or two errant notes, and the vocal strains that may or may not get reach all the way to the note which they were aimed. Daves has a way of man-handling his plywood Truetone into submission that fits these songs perfectly & Thile's playing is wilder and maybe more spontaneous than what you're used to hearing from him. I'm glad that in an Idol-centric polished pop music industry that true raw recordings like this project can still see the light of day.

Well Done

This is a great album. It is clean and traditional. Yet, it still has a very raw edge. Thile's vocals have matured very nicely. The instrumentation is just right. There is enough flare and improvisation to make you realize these guys are at the top of the game, but not so much that the album loses its true bluegrass roots. Well done guys!

A new description of Chris Thile would be hard to come by, especially since all the good superlatives have already been used. They called him a child prodigy when he was 12 years old and making his first solo album, 1994's Leading Off..., and a virtuoso when he was 20 and putting out his third solo effort, 2001's Not All Who Wander Are Lost. On the heels of those descriptions came effusive adjectives for his talent with a mandolin, words like "brilliant," "bold," "utterly fantastic," and "staggering."...
