This review is from: Things That Fly (Audio CD)The Stringdusters have managed to put out another amazing album in their third release 'Things That Fly'. If you are not familiar with these guys and you are a fan of acoustic music, you have missed the boat! While keeping a traditional bluegrass sound that even the most old school 'grass fan will do backflips over, they are diverse enough to catch the ear of the teenager who is listening to mainstream radio and have yet to figure out what good music is all about. Each member of the sextet is at the top of their game as musicians. From Andy Falco's guitar licks which ranks with the likes of Tony Rice to Jesse Cobb's at times jazz induced mando runs - these guys are both innovators and traditionalists, which is a fine line to walk! Their previous two albums have never fallen out of my CD rotation and I am glad to have another to add to the mix. And as a side note, their live shows have more improvised jams than most Dead shows ever thought about having, yet I see the traditional bluegrass fans at the shows sitting with a look of amazement on their face as the 'Dusters take bluegrass to a new level.
I give the album three thumbs up!

I appreciated this review so much I made the author a favorite. He or she is right on. Saw these wonderful musicians at the Saddleback Mountain Bluegrass Festival in Rangeley, Maine.
