Editorial Reviews

Review

Among new acoustic bands, it would be hard to find one that is more talented, engaging or thoroughly enjoyable. -- CMT.com -Craig Shelburne

In the spirit of Nickel Creek or Alison Krauss, Weather and Water is a wellspring of bubbling bluegrass pop... -- Real/Rhapsody.com- Eric Shea

Product Description

The sophomore album from the group comprised of two Australians-mandolin player Kym Warner and bass player Carol Young-and a fiddle-playing Brit named Eamon McLoughlin, who met each other in Austin, Texas. Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson asked the band to perform on their national tour this summer, after which they will join Kasey Chambers throughout the fall. One listen to Weather & Water, and it's easy to hear why these musical giants are turning to the Greencards for tour support. The band produced the album and called on in-demand engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Dolly Parton) to engineer it. They also wrote nearly every song on it. When they brought in outside material, it was from top-notch writers like Patty Griffin, who contributed 'What You Are', a tenderly beautiful ballad. The highlight of the album, however, may well be the band's own 'Time', which mixes dreamy harmonies and a languid melody into a perfect rumination on the past. Dualtone. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moody, sad but hopeful bluegrass pop August 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I discovered this band from an NPR/public radio airing last week. I went out and bought the album from hearing "Long Way Down," and I have to say that it's one of the most geniune and sincere acoustic albums I've heard in years. The music itself is wonderful, but the lyrics lend the music an authenticity that is often missing from popular music: the things greencard sing about are what you and I live everyday, not idealized hopeful future-land. The sound and menaing resonate more with the Louvin Brothers and less so with contemporar country/bluegrass faire. It's definately a bluegrass for the alt-country generation, but it also has appeal for the old timers. This is a masterful bluegrass crossover I cannot recommend more highly! Earnest and white, these Aussies have hit the nerve . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Beautiful Music January 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Greencards have earned their success the hard way. Individually they learned the business playing for other artists such as Rodney Crowell . They actually met and came together as a result of working on a project for another artist. They have build a fan base using the time honored tradition of opening for bands they respected musically. In short, they are a flashback to a time when musicians became successful by making, of all things, music. On their second album they remind new fans and old exactly what kind of music can be wrung of this kind of work. Haunting and memorable, The Greencards may just be the best contemporary straight bluegrass band on the scene today.

The album opens with the haunting tribute to losing a loved one, "The Ghost of You And Me," which features Carol Young's voice to its best advantage. The title track is a chilling ballad, penned by fellow Aussie Jed Hughes, about a man forced by economics into commercial fishing, trapped on a boat in a storm. "Almost Home" is a quick fingered and fast paced instrumental which still maintains the quietly beautiful mood of the album. "Like A Melody" is a warm, pretty love song, featuring Kym Warner on vocals. The albums lead off single "Time" returns to the melancholy vocals of Carol Young, accentuated to perfection by the fiddle and mandolin of Eamon McLoughlin and Kym Warner respectively. "Long Way Down" allows Warner the chance to stretch his vocals into a melancholy and minor keyed song which sums up the album's theme of the vagarities of love and loss. "Marty's Kitchen" is a striking and rousing instant instrumental classic which includes plenty of fiddle and two guitar solos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful recording July 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The recording itself is beautifully mixed.

Each voice and instrument is crystal clear.

A beauty to listen to !

Harmony seems to be a forgotten part of modern music.

This is just a gem.

The voices mesh together like silk and honey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Pandora June 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I realized after listening to one of my stations on Pandora that I kept loving songs and finding they were the Greencards on this album. I loved it so much, I bought it. Pandora is a great tool becaus it led me to this fabulously simple yet rich album. Love it, and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shimmering delight! August 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you want to actually hear a beautifully recorded and performed album - this is it! Borrowing Gary Paczosa from Alison Krauss and Kelly Wiliis' last and released on Dualtone should give you a clue as to the artistry and excellence of this sophmore effort by truly unique and genuine recording artists. Every song is a gem - buy it - you'll love it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Contemplative modern bluegrass September 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This Nashville-by-way-of-Austin trio can actually trace its roots back to Australia and Great Britain, from which its three players hail. Their shared interest in bluegrass and acoustic string-band music has produced some very fine modern bluegrass, with the requisite mandolin and fiddle playing set against acoustic bass. What sets this threesome apart from Alison Krauss, Nickle Creek and others exploring the same contemporary ground are the dream-time tempos of their original ballads, and the contemplative introspection of their vocals and harmonies. Engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton, Nickle Creek) captured the acoustic picking and the intertwined harmonies with tremendous clarity, bringing The Greencards' charms right into your living room.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's okay March 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dear Sir;
I was pleased with some of the tracks on the C D but not all. But everybody has different taste so I was fairly pleased with it.
So I guess a fair rating would be 4 star Calvin.
