What are the critics saying?
'Yet more fine music from one of the best British bands... A fine album that reaches out beyond the bands bluegrass roots and should see them consolidate their position as among the best of British'.
- Jeremy Searle, Americana UK, June 2012.
'There is a distinctive sheen to everything on the album but nothing that has that cloying glossiness that is so formulaic. In this generic field you will be very fortunate to hear better this year!'
- American Roots UK, June 2012.
'An album of superbly executed performances that are played with an irrepressible sense of joy'.
- Michael Hingston, Country Music People, June 2012.
'This is a great album by one of Britain's best country groups'.
- David Knowles, Maverick Magazine, July 2012.
'Over the past six years, they’ve been bolstering their musicianship, songwriting and reputation to the point where, if they continue making music like this, fully warrant becoming the first British inductees to the Country Music Hall of Fame.'
- Mike Davies, NetRhythms, April 2012.
'A well polished act in the Hot Club of Cowtown style with much in the way of super smooth musical eloquence and ear friendly cotton candy vocals evidenced here'.
- Bluesbunny, May 2012.
