    Editorial Review

    A concept album about gigantic household appliances taking over the world? No such luck. As the images of Hank Williams, Bob Dylan and Sun-era Elvis floating in the background might indicate, this Nashville band is strictly old school, singing about unemployed riverboat workers, covering Woody Guthrie and plucking banjos like there was no tomorrow. Produced by David Rawlings, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Record
    Having already bough and loved the last OCMS record I was expecting to love this and was not disappointed.While this is bluegrass, old timey music it is also inexplicably modern.Loving bluegrass will no doubt help you love this album, but I also think it is good for anyone who like good lyrics and strong, different instrumental.If you usually like rock or even punk you'd probably like this album.A great album to add to your music collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best album yet...
    "Eutaw" was a good album, but poor sound quality. It did not allow you to fully experience the greatness of Old Crow.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Bringing Back The Dead !!!
    As I listened to this CD today for the first time it brought back memories of one of the BEST all time bands, The Grateful Dead. The CD reminds one of Jerry Garcia and Company ! Even the song titles of Cocaine Habit, Minglewood Blues, New Virginia Creper, and Don't Ride That Horse are so Dead Like. The opener, Down Home Girl starts the listener on the road that one does not want to end. OCMS you have one of the finest CDs out there. I am sure I will play it over and over and can't wait till your next release !!! ... Read more

    I've had the new album "Hello Love" on repeat since I got it in the mail a few days ago.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music
    Although O brother where art thou is not the best of Coen brother's films, this soundtrack is remarkable. "I' man of constant sorrow" is a logical hit, quite a catchy tune, but "Po Lazarus", "Big rock candy mountain" "I'll fly away" or "Down in the river to pray" give all sorts of bluegrass, country and gospel moods, all perfectly executed.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A surprise!
    I love this CD. Which is a shocker. I can't stand blue grass, don't even like country. But the quality of singing voices and the immpeckable instrumental execution makes me an admirer. I bought this cd because I watched the movie and Goerge Clooney's 'singing' performance made me laugh. I smile alot when listening to this cd. Very well done. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    What goes around, comes around. As the resident rock star in Nickel Creek (contrasting with the trio's more reserved Watkins siblings), mandolinist Chris Thile has sent his music soaring in surprising directions from its bluegrass base.Though this solo release finds him dipping into the songbooks of the White Stripes ("Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground") and the Strokes ("Heart in a Cage"), much of the music sticks closer to tradition than Thile has in recent years. Among the highlights are an uptempo romp through Gillian Welch's "Wayside (Back in Time)," a pretty fair yodel on Jimmie Rodgers's "Brakeman's Blues," the close harmonies of the bluesy "If the Sea Was Whiskey," and Thile's original "You're an Angel and I'm Gonna Cry," classic country weeper. Five of the fourteen cuts are instrumental, with the opening "Watch 'at Breakdown" combining bluegrass instrumentation and jazzy sophistication, and "The Beekeeper" giving Thile's fingers a chance to fly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing
    Saw the How to Grow a Band at the old staple, the Belcourt Theatre here in Nashville the week that the album came out, and since I'm in the press, I had been listening to the disc for 2 months already. I really truly love this album. One reviewer complained about the long pauses in the middle of songs adn Chris being too far from the mic sometimes. For me, those were good things. I LOVE dynamics and contrast, two things sorely lacking in most music today. HTGAWFTG is full of both. It feels like a classic album with modern content.
    1-0 out of 5 stars language warning
    wonderful album ruined by the use of foul language in the next to the last track, what a shame.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pick a Thile .. any Thile.. They're all here
    How you react to this new offering from the amazing Mr. Thile depends on which of his multiple manifestations appeal. I liked most of what's here, so I gave the album a 4 out of 5......

    Editorial Review

    Nobody makes somber sound more exquisite than Alison Krauss. She's come an awfully long way from her days as a teenage fiddle prodigy, as her glamour gown on this CD's cover suggests and the bittersweet maturity of the music confirms. Krauss exchanges her bluegrass fiddle for the chamber strains of viola on much of the material, including four songs by Robert Lee Castleman (whose "The Lucky One," "Let Me Touch You for Awhile," and "Forget About It" were previously popularized by Krauss). Castleman's compositions showcase the emotional intimacy and interpretive subtlety of her breathy trill. The yearning harmonies on "Wouldn't Be So Bad" (written by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings) and "Borderline" (written by Sidney and Suzanne Cox) reinforce the album's restless spirit of quiet desperation. Change-of-pace contributions by Krauss's bandmates are more deeply rooted in the bluegrass/folk tradition, with Dan Tyminski renewing Del McCoury's "Rain Please Go Away" and Woody Guthrie's populist anthem "Pastures of Plenty"; Dobro master Jerry Douglas leads the charge on his instrumental "Unionhouse Branch." Few bands in bluegrass can match the virtuosity of Union Station's interplay, but the artistry of Alison Krauss transcends genre. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Of Alison, BBQ and Streetcars
    Twas the unmistakable, plantiff wail of the dobro that made me look up and watch an Alison Krauss song on CMT "If I Didn't Know Any Better" which features her walking down Broadway with Jack's BBQ neon sign in the background. And not just once do they show it, but over and over. Jack's hasn't crossed my mind in awhile - bit of a garish landmark from the outside........[heh, but the thought of it has my saliva glands working overtime..... Other than Lexington, NC BBQ and perhaps Hamil's BBQ in Madison, MS - nothing compares to the culinary experience of Jack's BBQ in downtown Nashville. You can smell it blocks before you get there. Once you step inside the rustic, exposed brick-wall shop, it's another world that reeks of nostalgia and the sweet smell of Hickory smoked BBQ.]
    5-0 out of 5 stars I don't care what anyone says, Alison is wonderful!
    Her voice is like honey and I never get tired of listening to Alison and her talented band.There are some great songs on this album, I can't think of anyone who has a better voice than Alison Krauss.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
    This album has quickly become one of my favorites.It is more cohesive than their last album and the songs are particularly well suited to the singers and the musicians.I liked the last album a lot, but I love this one. The Duhks are an incredibly talented group of musicians, and are amazing in person-- I recommend trying to see them live, if you can.I neverthought I'd enjoy hearing anyone but Tracy Chapman sing "Mountains O' Things" but this version is terrific.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fine, not great
    I greatly enjoyed the first Duhks album. 2nd album less so. This 3rd album is fine, not great, and it feels tired and uninspired. Some tracks are downright lame. The tunes travel well-troden paths and never push the envelope. Its a fine album for those who love the Duhks, but new listeners should opt for one if the earlier albums.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Migrations ... back to where we came from
    This is yet another Duhks album whose music will not leave you alone.Some of the songs are so haunting, you can't help replaying it over and over.In particular, "Three Fishers" (giving us a glimps of Tania Elizabeth's quiet but wonderfully lyrical voice) and "Who Will Take My Place" (sung with lead singer Jessee Havey's signature power and depth of emotion) leave you needing to hear the songs again and again.

    The major-label debut from this Texas trio proves their instrumental abilities, blending more traditional twang with slow melodic blues, foot-tapping rockabilly, and bluegrass-inspired pop harmonies. From the opener, "I Can Love You Better," the Chicks let their love of music and genuine joy shine through while the energy on this album reminds one of Carlene Carter. Solid musicianship, topnotch vocal performances, and infectious pop hooks make this a stellar project. Read more

    The Dixie Chicks perform with a real American bravado that rings so true that I just had to stop and listen to this CD. It made me think of what makes great America a great nation. In times of strife and muddled ethics in the headlines it is good to know that there is still a constant in our country. The Dixie Chicks' music remains true to the ideals that this nation was built upon. This CD is really quite moving.

    5-0 out of 5 stars In the beginning...
    ...there were the Dixie Chicks.

    I'm not a big Country Pop fan, but I've been a fan of the Dixie Chicks since I first heard them years ago, and I appreciate that they're getting more into Rock/Pop now.That said, "Wide Open Spaces" is an amazing break-out album, and is actually more Country than Pop. Each song is a hit, although some seem a bit too "old" for their projected image at the time.Reminds of the movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" sometimes.Still, it's all put together so well.I appreciate the slower and more melodramatic ones on the album, including "You Were Mine" and "I'll Take Care Of You." ...

    Editorial Review

    This two-CD, 25-song set, recorded in Louisville on two nights in the spring of 2002, finds bluegrass's most celebrated crossover band at the top of its game. Krauss's warm, feathery vocals, capable of conveying complex emotions in a single note, appear more full-bodied than in studio recordings, yet lose none of their sensual appeal or dramatic tension. She's perfect, for example, as the melancholy temptress on "Let Me Touch You for Awhile," coming across as both savior and seductress, while Jerry Douglas's Dobro echoes the searing strains of passion and pain. With banjoist-guitarist Ron Block, bassist Barry Bales, and guest drummer Larry Atamanuik anchoring the rhythm, the ensemble deftly blends bluegrass with jazz, rock, and folk, combining lightning speed (though rushing through "Forget About It") with sophisticated chops, tangible emotion, and thrilling vocal blends. The crowd, more spellbound with every note, doesn't even breathe on "Ghost in This House" and nearly tears the place down on Dan Tyminski's voice-of-George Clooney showcase, "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow." But who could blame them? It's only one highlight on an album of uncommon artistry, a moving testament to how good live music can be in the hands of world-class players. Read more

    Bored with all the lame rock stuff out there? I saw some television special on this band and they are very interesting. They are talented and play a form of music that nobody else their age does.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A very different offering
    I really love this CD! it is one of the most diverse collections of music I have ever heard. Nickle Creek break from their blue grass roots here and come in to their own. It is also worth noting that this is the first album without Alison Krauss at the production helm. The blending of their voices, and the virtuosity they have is incredible. Helena, When in Rome, Sara's cover of Dylan's Tomorrow Is A Long Time and Best of Luck are my favorites. I also like Somebody More like You as it features Sean's voice. Yes, this may disappoint some fans that were expecting a little more blue grass, but it has inspired me as a musician to think outside the musical box.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Wildly Overrated
    I know that fans of the band will click furiously that this review is "not helpful" because it doesn't sing Nickel Creek's praises, but so be it.

    Editorial Review

    Like Nickel Creek and the Duhks (and Alison Krauss and Union Station before them), Crooked Still employ bluegrass elements as a springboard for an eclectic, expansive dynamic. Behind the sweetly ethereal and occasionally jazzy vocals of Aoife O' Donovan, the interplay of Gregory Liszt's banjo, Rushad Eggleston's cello (both bowed and flatpicked), and Corey DiMario's double bass gives the young New England band a sound that is closer to chamber-grass than hoedown. Though none of the material on this label debut is original, the transformations typically are, with the murder balladry of "Little Sadie" given a surprisingly sprightly reading, Bob Dylan's early "Oxford Town" taken at double-time speed, and Robert Johnson's "Come On in My Kitchen" sounding more meditative than bluesy. The band and veteran producer Lee Townsend enlist a number of guests for harmony and instrumental support, but it's plain that the drummerless quartet has the talent and musical vision to deliver on this album's considerable promise.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The coolest music I've heard in a long time
    I discovered the latest Crooked Still album by pure chance in Charleston SC... This is great music and O'Donovan's voice gives chills.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good sophmore effort
    If you're checking out the reviews for Crooked Still you either already know what a great outfit these folks are or maybe you're poking around based on word-of-mouth.Regardless, they ably follow-up their amazing debut album (Hop High) with another collection of bluegrassy traditional songs and cover tunes on Shaken By a Low Sound.Again, the Still bring it to effect.Standout tracks include an upbeat version of the Dylan gem Oxford Town which comfortably segues into the classic Cumberland Gap, Ain't No Grave which gets the train song treatment, and an airy take on Wind and Rain.The album really is a good all-around listen; however, (and here are my reservations) it lacks a certain quality that made their debut such a fabulous disc; first, gone is the prominent spacey, hypnotic feel that made it sound that something heavy was going down in the studio that day.Additionally, maybe it's the production/arrangements (Robert Johnson's Come On In My Kitchen) or song choice (didn't the great Boston folkie Kris Delmhorst just record a cover of Ain't No Grave?), but it doesn't quite hold the attention as well as Hop High either.I was also hoping for a batch of original songs as well, but I recognize, in obviousness, that this was not the intent here.Like I said, it really is a nice little disc in spite of these trifling issues, and it would be a shame if you overlooked Shaken By a Low Sound for them as Crooked Still are diamonds in the rough of a too often vapid music scene.Looking forward to seeing 'em on tour!

    Editorial Review

    A poll-winning fiddler since her teens, Alison Krauss was an established bluegrass star when her label persuaded her to step out from her usual projects with Union Station, her crack band, and sanction this compilation of various band and solo guest performances. The ploy worked, yielding a wonderful, odds-beating crossover hit with Krauss's cover of "Baby, Now That I've Found You," a carousing late-'60s pop chant transformed into a delicate, vulnerable declaration of love. Focusing on Krauss's lovely, yearning soprano, the track elevated the musician above her resolutely democratic role in her quintet, catapulting Krauss to the biggest bluegrass success story in over 30 years. Krauss has stayed true to her bluegrass roots, as well as to Union Station, but this cross-section of contemporary bluegrass songs, joyous gospel, and canny rock covers testifies to the young artist's luminous appeal.

    I've heard all the hype about Alison Krauss and her musical influence on artists such as Nickel Creek.I wanted to see what I was missing out on given Alison's reputation and tried this as my introduction to her music.This highly rated CD was a major disappointment to me.She sounds like a little kid singing and all but a couple of songs sound the same.A little too country style for my taste.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest
    I purchased all 3 volumes of this set, and vol 2 & 3 are much better. Vol 1 is 80% instrumental, I prefer more vocal.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Circle stays unbroken
    With this rerelease a new generation can relearn the tradition of pure country that has influncenced not only nashville purists but rock as well. Much as John Hammond preserved blues traditions, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has recorded tradional songs with tradional artists that would have been forgotten to this generation raised on Nashville star and American Idol. The importance of this music can be seen in the resurgence of traditonal country music and and its impact on rock and roll in the movie "Walk the Line" where the two are virtually inseparable in Sam Phillips Memphis and the million dollar quartet.This Album is a must for anyone interested in the history of country,rock or pop music.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great but lacks a bit of the magic of the original vinyl
    This is great American music and I fully agree with all the previous rave reviews that so eloquently praise this performance. I am giving it 4 stars only because the 30th anniversary discs digital transfer though good was not all I had hoped it would be. If you have ever heard this disc on vinyl you would know what I am nitpicking about. I wish the producers had given this disc all the attention it so justly deserves. Hybrid SACD stereo would have been ideal, but even standard CDs can reproduce a bit more of the magic once heard on the original vinyl. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    San Diego is not exactly known as a hotbed of contemporary bluegrass music, but then again, Nickel Creek are a far cry from most bluegrass bands you've ever heard. On their Alison Krauss-produced debut, they serve up a lilting, ethereal fusion of bluegrass, Celtic, modern folk, and even classical influences, offering exquisite harmonies that would be more at home at a Crosby, Stills & Nash tribute than at a musical salute to the late Bill Monroe. Yet it makes for delightful listening, all the same. The three principals (Sara Watkins on fiddle and vocals; her brother Sean Watkins on guitar, mandolin, and vocals; and Chris Thile on mandolin, banjo, bouzouki, and vocals) are either barely out of their teens or still in them. Individually and as a band, they've already won a slew of awards and notoriety on their respective instruments. The three prodigies (joined by Thile's dad, Scott, on bass) really strut their eclectic hot licks on a few soaring, skittering instrumentals, but even more impressive are Nickel Creek's graceful, heartfelt harmonies on the many lovely ballads. Hot licks, when you get right down to it, are a dime a dozen; this sort of pluperfect tunefulness is a much rarer thing. Read more

    No argument with the musicianship, which is sadly wasted on insipid songwriting and truly wretched lyrics. A song about a heartbroken lighthouse? Give me a freakin' break.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great find!!
    Seems like every great bluegrass group generates reviews that contain the disclaimer "This is not really bluegrass.", and I guess that's to counter the perception that OTHER people associate the term with the banjo scene in Deliverance and not much else.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Nickel Creek
    Since Chris Thile is a member of this band, I got two of their CDs. NICKEL CREEK and THIS SIDE. Music reviews can be so subjective, can't they? They're technically quite accomplished musicians, but somehow they bore me. I can't explain it. They just don't touch me in what the locals would call my deep heart. Same problem I have with Brahms. Sorry, mate.

    Editorial Review

    Modern folk and blues rarely sounds as inventive and colorful as the Wood Brothers' spare, soothing studio debut. Currents of jazz, pop, and country also ripple through these 12 lovely arrangements built around Chris Wood's upright bass (previously heard in Medeski, Martin & Wood) and Oliver Wood's gentle acoustic and electric guitars. It's not simply that the brothers' sweet, high voices have the genetic gift of close harmony: they're in absolute synch creatively, too. So when one's singing lingers over a lazy phrase in a number like the languid ode to living "Chocolate on My Tongue," the other hangs back on his instrument until just the right, complementary moment. Drummer Kenny Wollesen, who plays on a handful of tracks, is on the same wavelength--never rushing or pushing the Woods' behind-the-beat sensibility. And the rich dark tones of the bass and, in particular, slide guitars perfectly illuminate their unhurried stories about spiritual discovery and the trials of life. All of which makes Read more

    If you've listened to Alison Krauss, you've heard the best.Rhonda's arrangements and voice were adequate, but nothing special, and I doubt I'll listen to the CD again.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Yes....she is a blue grass girl!
    This is worth a listen.Rhonda Vincent is one of the most talented musicians and surrounds herself in so much talent.The whole band individually is impressive; but, together fantastic.They are so worth seeing in person.Crisp, clear and better than any CD.I say....GO GIRL!

    5-0 out of 5 stars First ever review
    I have hundreds of cd's many of them purchased from Amazon and many of them bluegrass but I have never been moved to write a review before. In my opinion All American Bluegrass Girl is a fabulous album with amazing music. Rhonda sings beautifully and some of the instrumentals and riffs are fantastic.I visit the mountains of Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee each year and this (commercial) cd is the closest I have heard to the "real thing". Well done Rhonda and your team, keep up the good work, I hope that you will get more recognition through this album, especially here in the UK. To the people who complain about the gospel and military songs, visit the real bluegrass areas especially in NC and Eastern Kentucky and you might understand where they come from. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars fun, but not appropriate for kids - violent lyrics
    This CD is fun and musically intriguing, but not appropriate for kids... one song talks about "what can you do in a case like that but stamp on your mother, and your toothbrush, and on everything that's helpless." Another talks of being an immigrant to the country and says "and they beat me, and they banged me, and they left me on the ground." And another says "I'm a great sharpshootress. There is nothing that I can't shoot in the eyes, or the ears, or the teeth, or the fingers." Musically it's fun and goofy and intriguing, but I was appalled when I realized what I was encouraging my young child to listen to.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Breath of Fresh Air
    Wonderful instrumentals and lyrics.A Shenandoah Lullaby is simply beautiful.I love the way the ending segues into Brahm's lullaby. His version of Arkansas traveller is refreshing.Teddy Bears' Picnic is a quaint song that few people have heard.There Ain't No Bugs On Me is my two-year-old daughter's favorite, judging from the way she belts out this song and giggles from time to time.I like all the songs on the CD.A breath of fresh air for parents who prefer real instruments to synthesized pop.

    5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BLUEGRASS!
    I just recently got into bluegrass and when I heard this album I now love bluegrass.With songs like foggy mountain breakdown,rocky top and old home place this cd is great!!!! I think that I'm going to go out and buy a banjo today.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Introducing myself to music
    I had no idea about what type of music bluegrass was before I got this CD.Amazon recommended this CD when I used their search function for bluegrass. I don't have anything to compare it against - so I'm judging it on the music and how "I" like it as a person who hasn't listened to bluegrass before.

    I have a 4 mth old baby and both he and I enjoy music.He gets a little uptight during changes so I like to play calming music for us both.This CD offers a wide range of beautiful songs.I can see this one playing in our household for many years.

    I play this every night for my daughter (17 months).I often sleep in the same room with her and really look forward to playing this softly.We even keep the CD player on repeat and I still like this.Very soothing and interesting.I highly recommend this for any new parent.

    I first purchased this cd several years ago for myself, it was a wonderful way to relax. When my son came along I put it in his room among other "kids" cds.My son, now age 9,(who won't listen to anymore "kid" cds) absolutely loves it.He has been falling asleep to this wonderful cd for the past 3 years.I loved being able to share "the world" with him through music.Recently we remodeled and unfortunately the cd was chipped! He was heartbroken... so here I am purchasing another!Soothing rhythms, soft voices, wonderful instrumentation. A cd that the entire family will love and not get tired of hearing.Even familiar lullabies are updated very nicely. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    With four discs containing 81 musical selections and a bonus DVD of artist interviews, videos, and photos, one of Americana's leading indie labels celebrates its first 25 years. Actually, Sugar Hill passed the quarter-century mark in 2003, but such a handsomely packaged and lovingly annotated set arrives better late than never. Label founder Barry Poss made the selections and contributes anecdotes about each, with the sequencing following a chronological progression from 1978 to 2003. From its base in bluegrass, both traditional and progressive, the North Carolina label has subsequently branched into maverick Texas songwriters (Robert Earl Keen, Townes Van Zandt, Terry Allen, Guy Clark, James McMurtry) and bands as diverse as the Gourds, Bad Livers, and Donna the Buffalo. Though label stars such as Jerry Douglas, Nickel Creek (as a trio and in their solo efforts), and Dolly Parton are inevitably represented, the set also features the underexposed artistry of country singer John Starling and harmony trio Uncle Walt's Band. Though never signed to the label, Emmylou Harris provides harmonies all over the set, while Johnny Cash guests on two cuts. As Vince Gill notes in the accompanying booklet, "Whenever you bought music on Sugar Hill, even if it was by an artist you were unfamiliar with, you'd be pretty sure it was something pretty great."
