5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Acoustic Mayhem May 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After a long wait since their last studio release (2002's 'Burger After Church'), The Waybacks come back and prove that even with an ever-changing lineup, they still can have a remarkably consistant sound... while leaving room for growth. This album was recorded in between the time they had a revolving door of guest fiddlers and finally the permanant addition of the amazingly talented Warren Hood, whose absence on this album is a disappointment. For lack of, at the time, a fiddler they could call their own, they received help from some of the best: Gabe Witcher, Evan Price and Darol Anger. Lloyd Maines' masterful production gives the listener the feeling that what's on the album can be reproduced in a live setting without missing a step. While further experimenting with bluegrass, they have ventured into the realms of jazz, swing and even straight-up rock (this showcased on the surprisingly universally accessible "Helping Me"). The album's title track is one of the most well-written instrumental pieces I've heard in a long time (my only complaint about this album is that this song did not open the album). "Monkey Pants" has already been a crowd favorite at the Wabes' live shows and the stuio rendition does the song justice. With "Hot Kranski" and "Ninety-One", James Nash proves to be both a well-educated instrumentalist and arranger and a skillful, reflective songwriter. Stevie Coyle does not disappoint with the cleverly lyricized "The Petrified Man". The Waybacks will someday be a huge concert draw (even more than they already are), winning over fans with their interesting take on bluegrass and folk music, and this album just may do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic string jazz-grass and swing May 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This acoustic quartet's playing and harmonizing suggests bluegrass, but there's a lot more happening on their fourth album than traditional string music. In particular, there's light drumming throughout, no banjo, and little material from the standard bluegrass repertoire. The band's originals are heavy on instrumental virtuosity and interplay, venturing into similar jam-band territory as Leftover Salmon, but with concise arrangements and gypsy-jazz swing reminiscent of revivalists like Hot Club of Cowtown. In addition to their originals, the band's hand-picked covers include a tight arrangement of Chick Corea's "Amando's Rhumba" and a tuba-lined take of Ray Davies' 1972 Kinks' klassic, "Motorway." The variety that the band creates with acoustic instruments is interesting, but the seamlessness of their segues from hot jazz to folk-rock to twangy mountain and Celtic sounds is truly impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow... May 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I bought "From the Pasture to the Future" while at Merlefest last month. I put the disc in my truck cd player and it got stuck! It just wouldn't come out, as I drove around in North Carolina and the Asheville area. It stayed there for days, as I was hanging out in Asheville getting ready for the Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF) two weekends after Merlefest. When I started to do my camping setups at LEAF the disc at least made it out of my truck, only to find its way into my boombox. It stayed there for most of my after-festival teardown work as well; and then found its way back into my truck cd player for most of the drive home to Wisconsin!

Needless to say....I'm blown away by this music. Congrats to the Waybacks for a marvelous piece of work!

See you on down the road.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen to it LOUD May 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
FTPTTF is an evolution from their three earlier albums. The variety of fiddlers and the addition of a tuba, among other things, make this a different offering than any of the earlier albums. There is also much excellent material with their mix of styles that charm and beguile. I have listened to the album many times now and I like it best on my monster theater speakers turned up so I can hear every note and nuance. I eagerly await the next album with their uber-talented Warren Hood added. Until then do yourself a favor and add this one to your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Waybacks Take It To The Next Level May 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
FTPTTF showcases the band's originality, chops and versatility from the infectious "Petrified Man," to both blazing and beautiful instrumentals, a Rocker, a Country ballad that puts Country to shame, a "killer" New Orleans 2nd line blues cover of The Kinks "Motorway", dazzling rhumba/jazz pieces, and a Celtic trad. as only the Waybacks can do. Spectacular producing by Llyod Maines. Can't wait for The Waybacks next CD with new member Warren Hood. The Waybacks for President.
