CD Reviews

Thomas Stanton | Los Angeles, CA USA | 11/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ok, this is an amazing dobro album. Simple as that. You will appreciate it especially if you are a dobro player like myself. The complexity and intricate design of Rob's playing, as well as the accuracy and amazing tone that he projects in this album are astounding. Some of my favorite bluegrass breakdowns of all time are on this CD, like "Reuben," which is a must-have with Rob on lead and JD on harmony. Every track on this disc is worth listening to, again and again. This one's a keeper."
An Excellent Debut

"This is a fine CD with a long list of strong songs. "Song For Jennifer" is a tribute to his wife and their love and not considered bluegrass but most of this project is. With stellar band combinations that include Rob Ickes playing with a reunion of the former Alison Krauss band as well as playing with the present Blue Highway band, this CD does not lack pickers or vocalists. And Rob has found a way to melt them all into his 'sound'. From start to finish this is a CD that you will be happy you added to your collection. A great debut that only leaves the promise of the future to wonder about."
