Editorial Reviews

Known for their stunning instrumental and vocal virtuosity, Hot Buttered Rum has become one of the hottest touring draws in the country, as well as one of the most innovative roots-based musical acts of the scene today. With one foot in the door of traditional bluegrass and the other, wildly stepping out into a vast musical universe, hot Buttered Rum's sound is as familiar and inviting as it is fresh and original, seemingly weaving elements of folk, rock, reggae, and bluegrass within the fabric of intelligent and inspiring songwriting. 2005 was a breakout year of the band. They performed at premier music festivals such as Telluride Bluegrass, Newport Folk, South by Southwest, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass 5. The have shared the stage with artist Phil Lesh, Ben Harper, Bela Fleck, Peter Rowan, and Mike Marshall to name a few. Digipak. Harmonized. 2006.

Regrettably I have only known of these guys for about a year now. In that time though, they have supplanted others such as String Cheese Incident as my current favorite band. If you've never heard of Hot Buttered Rum before, or are curious, don't delay in picking this up. These guys are truly amazing, both in instrumentation and vocals, with all five members singing. Their music will enrich your soul, and for some define you, as it does for me. I picked this album up at one of their shows in Cincinnati, and listened to it on loop the entire seven hour drive back to Buffalo. It is that good.

Firefly - written by Aaron, the fiddle (and sometimes mandolin) player, this is one of my favorite songs of theirs. I originally got into HBR because of their stunning instrumentation, but the vocals on this song cut through me right to my soul. Aaron writes some real deep lyrics, such as: "Often it's the case you find a stranger in a place living out the life you left behind. So wade into the streams that lead you to your dreams; fireflies will mark your way..... Well it's quite a pleasant site, you fireflies at night; illuminate my soul with your convictions. I think I'll close my eyes and up into the skies, thunder guide me down to the river."

Guns or Butter - written by Erik, the banjo/flute/accordion player, this is a powerful anti-war song that flows nicely. All five trade of nice solos throughout the song.

Idaho Pines - written by Zac, the mandolin (and sometimes fiddle) player, this song is so sad, yet so happy at the same time. It features stunning vocals by Zac, with his unique voice, such as: "Well lately I found new roads traveled. These ones aren't paved nor laid in gravel. Time won't stay still or stay the same. I guess I'll be my way.

This is a band hitting their stride! This release is a BIG jump from their last (and only) studio release. Every song is played by musicians having FUN! Every song is strong. Retro, bluegrass, folk....kind of Leftover Salmon, kind of Blue Highway, kind of Mountain Heart, kind of Yonder Mountain String Band, kind of Cornmeal,......kind of FUN, FUN, FUN. By the way they include flute (not your typical bluegrass instrument) for some added character.

This is one hell of an album... Very relaxing and chilled out, perfect tunes to puff a giant spliff to if you're a bluegrass fan... And the flute adds such an amazing, unique touch to these guys music its indescribable. I love every song on this album, but some particular highlights for me are: Firefly, Idaho Pines, Well-Oiled Machine, Butch and Peggy, and Sweet Honey Fountain. I'll admit this album doens't have the energy of their live shows, it ain't no foot stompin yeehawin bluegrass album that makes you want to throw your hat up in the air while square-dancin so go see em live if that's what you're into, or just buy some YMSB or Bill Monroe.... Regardless of that this album is beautiful...... highly recommended.

Seeing I cannot give a star rating in half incriments, I give it 3.2 stars (it's hard to get drunk on). The 1st few listens on this album, I guess I could say I was a bit let-down. Like most bands that thrive in the live setting, this band is no exception. They're live shows are somthing to be heard (and seen) due to the infectious energy they bring. This album is much more straight laced than thier live shows, but the more I listen, the more I like it for what it is, a relaxing, solid album of strong songs. This is a good album to just hang out to on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Butch & Peggy shows the potential of songwritting (and harmoizing)this band has. Obviously, the instumental proweress is pretty damn tight with every memeber. If you like blegrass (or new grass as many would call HBR), pick up this album; I don't think you'll be dissapointed. Go see them live if you ever get the chance!
