The Real Deal
Gary Popovich | Chesterfield, VA USA | 07/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's no confusion as to what kind of band Blue Highway is, and what kind of audience they are after. This is the kind of straight-forward "grass" offering that will make any hardcore disciple grin from ear-to-ear. Both Wayne Taylor and Shawn Lane are wonderful vocalists, and while Rob Ickes' dynamic dobro is featured throughout (check out the way he tears into his solo on "Getting Over You"), there's plenty of good pickin' throughout this effort - Jason Burleson is the tastiest banjo player this side of Union Station's Ron Block. But the strengths of Blue Highway are its teamwork and selection of material. Guitarist Tim Stafford contributes some great original material ("Find Me Out on a Mountain Top" and the a capella gospel number "Wither Thou Go" are sure to find their way into the standard bluegrass catalog), and New England native (and former bandmate of Bela Fleck) Jack Tottle has two fine numbers covered here, as well - "I'd Rather Be a Lonesome Pine" is a great kickoff to the CD, and the haunting "May Your Life Be Sweet and Simple" concludes it. Make it a point to hear Blue Highway - you won't be disappointed."
The Face Of Bluegrass Today

"Blue Highway is one of the best bluegrass bands around today and this is one of their finest efforts. This CD is a good introduction to the band or to bluegrass music itself. The cuts on the project move easily between hard driving and slower more contemplative songs. The instrumentation is terrific and the harmonies are awesome. With songs about floods, prison, lost loves and being used by a love, and mountains this is a classic the moment of its release. "He Walked All The Way Home" is a very thought provoking song set at the close of the Civil War and "Cold Frosty Morn" is an excellent banjo and fiddle duet. Members of this band have played with Alison Krauss and Ricky Skaggs among others and their love of the music and their professionalism shines through with a first class effort! Highly recommended to all."
