I highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoys well written intricately played music. This is what I would call Americana Bluegrass. The songs are catchy and very fun to listen to. You will find yourself humming the melodies or outright singing along with each vocal track. Their is a beautiful mix of instruments on this CD ,Banjo, Mandolin, Fiddle, and Tin Whistle really add to the the sound a full and extremely talenetd feel. The singing and inflection never gets tedious and the CD is a joy to listen to over and over. Thank you Railroad Earth for writing and recording it Thank you Amazon for recommending it.
talking with a music buff friend after purchasing this album, i realized i'm a late comer to this bands delightful sounds. They've gone and moved up in the music world. But this is a great blend album, folk, rock, international sounds and instruments...not the usual pick'n going on here.... excellent work. Bird in the House haunts.
I recently discovered Railroad Earth, and Bird In A House is fine music. It is a blend of bluegrass, newgrass, and acoustic folk. The musicianship is simply outstanding and the songwriting is like poetry.
One amazing album. More traditional bluegrass as opposed to the directions they went thereafter, growing into something even greater. From start to finish, this album will blow your mind if you love bluegrass and is so good it probably will even if you aren't.
