Very good contemporary bluegrass featuring superb musicianship and
sophisticated, untraditional arrangements.

1 – (3:28) Radio* Mid-tempo, punchy & rhythmic tribute to the radio, nice.
2 – (3:15) Diamonds In The Dust* Mid-tempo bouncy tune about the working man.
3 – (3:20) Simple Is Me Odd little reflective ditty, just so-so.
4 – (4:44) Blow Me Away* Pounding mid-up tune about a tornado, a la Punch Brothers.
5 – (4:01) Blue Velvet Rain Pretty ¾ time tune, lyrics a bit inscrutable.
6 – (2:52) Looking Glass* Up-tempo instrumental, very nicely played.
7 – (4:48) Down That Road Again Heartfelt, slow meditation, decent.
8 – (3:03) Break* Fast tune in Punch Brothers’s style.
9 – (4:12) Wasted Pretty lilting ¾ time tune, again lyrics are inscrutable.
10 – (3:45) Long Summer* Nice mid-up-tempo summer love song, really fine.
11 – (3:18) When The Well Runs Dry Another working class anthem, mid, decent.
12 – (3:35) Monumental Fool A bitter condemnation, skip it.
