Editorial Reviews

Nine years after they begun their own label, TFIA recorded this CD in Nashville with guest artists Tim O'Brien, Vassar Clements, Jerry Douglas, and Anders Osbourne. The three-time Grammy Award nominees were recently chosen by Performing Songwriter magazine as one of the 100 most influential independent artists in the past fifteen years, sandwiched between Phish and Widespread Panic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A return to early Trout August 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Closer to the Truth is a cd that rekindles the emotional music of Trout Fishing in America that was prevelant in Truth is Stranger Than Fishing. Every song on Closer to the Truth is a powerful emotion. There is no bad song on this cd. The albulm starts off with Dreaming which sets the listener into a daydreaming mood and goes straight into a remeniscing melody (Old Things). A light-hearted skeptical shortly follows (Dangerous). You will be humming the chorus all day after that song. Alberta Postcard will paint you a picture and make you want to visit Canada while There You Go will bring you back to the mortality of life. The icing on the cake is the finale (The Sun the Moon and Stars). This is their best song on the CD and will bring you to tears. It took Trout 10 years to match the quality of Truth is Stranger Than Fishing, but Closer to the Truth matches it and then surpasses it in their best Adult albulm to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trout Does it Again! June 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Like all of their CD's, Trout fishing in America has done it again! Fun, entertaining music that is great for adults, kids...whomever!
Trout continues to be one of my favorite groups out there-- it's amazing that they do not get more national publicity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band at their essential best August 23, 2005
By redfox
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I seem to be one of the few fans who first met this band in a live bar show, rather than catering to the kiddies, but their mix of humor with touching insight captured my love and has held it for almost 15 years. I don't know why I waited to buy this album, but one of the middle-year albums was over-produced and I got a bit fearful. However, this really captures their original sensibility, and any fan will recognize the voices and harmonies that have always characterized this duo (with a couple guest instruments thrown in along the way). Here there are no joke songs or kid stuff, but just an excellent mix of swinging toe-tappers with poignant thoughtfulness.

Those who are used to the gentle humor of the kid music will enjoy the way that Keith and Ezra bring their big hearts and sunny outlooks to the general themes of good (adult) rock -- dreams about the future, getting through the hard times, love and relationships, etc. I never get tired of an album like this; these guys are operating down where real life is lived. Every song is very strong and this CD keeps finding its way back into my player...

4.0 out of 5 stars Keith and Ezra get serious (mostly) August 8, 2000
By undrdog
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Keith and Ezra's most polished, mostly serious work for non-kids. Very well done with excellent new songs. My new favorite Trout CD. Hey, guys, just don't forget your roots and all the silliness that made us fans fall in love with you!
