This was my 2nd CD purchased for a gift.
Meagan Porter
As we got deep into the '70s and beyond, this music seemed to slip to the background as the various forms of rock, pop, and country grew and flourished.
Collie Leroy
Excellent harmonies and clever songwriting.

I have now expanded my music interests to the sounds and lyrics of these more mellow artists. Just a superb album, I hadn't heard of Mandolin Orange (head in the sand) before I purchased this CD, I liked it so well I now own their previous double CD release as well. What a pleasure it is to listen to.their music and the stories that the songs tell..

I hate to admit it, but I had not heard of Mandolin Orange until this past Sunday, they just happened to be featured on a local radio show and I just happened to be listening. Given that I really enjoy their brand of bluegrass (I'm calling in bluegrass, it can easily, I suppose be classified as Country/Folk as well) and that they are local to where I live in North Carolina, I believe they are from Carrboro, which is just down the way from Durham, it's rather remarkable that I'd never run across them. Nonetheless, once I heard them play a few tracks from their/this new CD I was hooked. The songs on this CD are just downright beautiful and soulful all in one go. Aside for the thought provoking and heart panging lyrics, there is a perfect blend of singing and musicianship on the CD--they are wed together perfectly. There are some nice overtones of Jazz on the cd as well, which I think just adds to the soulfulness. In general, I tend to be swayed/moved by the music in a song, I've run across few groups that do such good job of doing just that, and with such wonderful lyrics to boot.

As a teenager, then young man, I was heavily influenced back in the '60s by the "great folk scare" that revitalized an interest in the kind of music done by the Weavers, the Carter Family, and the Appalachian sound from the earlier decades of the 20th century. While many of the groups performing popular "folk music" in the '60s were young urban musicians, they succeeded in preserving a form of music that is both fundamental to America's musical roots and a link to the music brought to America by immigrants. As we got deep into the '70s and beyond, this music seemed to slip to the background as the various forms of rock, pop, and country grew and flourished. Fortunately, not only did the traditional American music not die, but it has been taken up by a new generation and infused with a soulfulness and power of its own. The musical traditions displayed in movies such as "Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?" and the more recent "Inside Llewyn Davis" are being carried on by wonderful musicians like Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Oscar Isaac, Mumford and Sons, the Punch Brothers, Sierra Hull, and many others. To that group must be added this marvelous duo from North Carolina, Mandolin Orange. The album "This Side of Jordan" is a gem--an absolutely invaluable addition to the folk tradition that is so alive these days. This album satisfies in every possible way, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Wow, what a sound these two have. I hope they are around for a long while and don't get caught up in the grip of the banal sound of contemporary "country" music we hear too much of these days. Sad to say, for all the good it has provided, Nashville has single-handedly destroyed real country music.Read more ›

Great album! Excellent harmonies and clever songwriting. I love that they both play multiple instruments and they play them well.

This is a great album of relaxed, classic-sounding old time music. Love the voices and melodies. Whole album is a soothing experience. Found it on NPR's "Best of 2013" list, and very happy I downloaded it.

Another great MO record that I listen to non-stop. I've recommended this band over the last year more than any other in years.

One of the few bands that can put out more than one album where every song on every album is wonderful. Buy them all.
