Synopsis

Album Description
Cherryholmes, two-time-Grammy nominees and 2005 International Bluegrass Music Association's Entertainers of the Year, return with their third album for Skaggs Family Records, exhibiting the band's musical progression without losing the aggressive instrumental style and family harmonic blend for which they are known. Traditional bluegrass elements remain prevalent in songs like "Devil In Disguise" (consequently, the only song on the album not written by a member of the Cherryholmes family), "My Love For You Grows" and the catchy Celtic "Sailing Man". At the same time, advanced melodies and chord progressions are explored in "I Can Only Love You (So Much)", "The King As A Babe Comes Down", "Don't Believe", "Bleeding" and "Traveler.

CD Reviews

Not impressed
James Moulton | Abington,Pa | 10/16/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This group is a good family group that travel around the country in a bus like lots of bluegrass bands do, Honestly,every CD that I hear gets further away from true bluegrass. I loved thier first CD, I was not crazy about "Black and White" and lesss crazy about this, Why? The 1st Cd had great songs with great hooks and melodies. There was just something special about it, lots of energy too, this is just blase' in my opinion, don't like them any less,they should try a live CD, maybe that come across better.
Carrie Hassler and Hard Rain is a group that I like much better, but it's all opinion

Stronger playing, and Excellent Songwriting
John A. Gregorio | Castalian Springs, TN | 09/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cherryholmes is noted for their great bluegrass playing, showmanship, and solid harmony, but what makes this ce great is the improvement in their songwriting. They are getting away from just girl/boy falls in love and gets hurt to more complex lyrics as in "This is my Son" which reveals a symbiosis between Christ's sacrifice to Our Soldiers and Sailors. There is a new found maturity in noting that those we fight for don't always understand our sacrifice for their freedom. Yet, the love songs are very good too with varied melodies(something many songwriters fail to do and their songs all sound the same.)
As in all their Skaggs Cds the instruments are fast and furious and bring back the overdrive to bluegrass."
Pros and Cons
Annaeli | Arkansas | 01/01/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Pros: Cia's voice has matured, along with her songwriting ability.
B.J. has emerged as a force on the mandolin, allowing Molly to shine on fiddle.
There's a better balance of female/male vocals than "Black and White" had (in my opinion, and this is probably because my favorite singer in the group is Cia!)
The boy-girl war isn't so much in the forefront.

Cons: Cherryholmes has lost its wholesome, family-oriented vibe.
The one song on the CD that they didn't write (Devil in Disguise) didn't add.



By the way, the title "Don't Believe" catches you by surprise. . . until you get a good look at their faces on the cover! (The song is actually about not believing everything the world throws at you, not what you think at first glance.)"
