Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On their first secular album in six years, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver may not break any new ground, but as always, they do what they do extraordinarily well. Combining layered, often chill-bump-good harmonies with bold instrumental verve, the reigning International Bluegrass Music Association Vocal Group of the Year tackles a number of songs that hearken more to old-style, heartbreak country music than to the strict ‘grassy canon. But whether the repertoire is contemporary or vintage (Bill Anderson’s "We Missed You"), the performance never veers from traditional style and, in that sense, may seem a bit dated to bluegrass fans who came to the genre via Alison Krauss & Union Station, et al., and expect more subtlety in the playing or poetry in the lyrics. However, there’s plenty of variety with the addition of the swingy "A Thing of the Past," where the guitar accents dart in and out like a flirtatious suitor at a dance, with "The Hand Made Cross," the album’s only nod to the spiritual hereafter, and with "Oak Ridge Rendezvous," only the second instrumental of Lawson’s long career. All in all, this is a consistently solid and lively effort from one of bluegrass’s most bankable acts. --Alanna Nash

What a great return to bluegrass for Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver! After six years without a secular album, and too many southern-style gospel albums that took him further and further away from the bluegrass sound, Doyle is back with a vengeance, as well as with the best vocal blend I've heard from this group in years. Great songs, fine instrumentals, and super singing make this the best Quicksilver album in ages. This is solid, traditional bluegrass, and the singing can't be bettered. This is what Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver are all about!

I just love Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. They harmonies are spot on and the instrumentals as good as usual. Would never have to consider whether to buy one of their albums. It's always a sure thing.

DLQS is a remarkably honest band. It doesn't feel like they're trying to produce incredible music from a certain place and time. But they do just that. The words are truthful, catchy, and not in the least pretentious. The instruments coo under the watch of the band's many age groups. I had the opportunity to see Doyle Lawson at a Prairie Home Companion taping and that was it, we came home and ordered many CDs that weekend! Some bluegrass-type music is created from outsiders who haven't lived the life it truly takes to make this music on its deepest level. Lawson is from rural Eastern Tennessee and it comes through in his wonderful tunes.

This guy never quits. He's been creating unbelievable vocal combinations for a long time. This band, and these songs, are as good as anything he has done...
