This review is from: Still Crooked (Audio CD)
Crooked Still have produced two excellent CDs of bluegrass with a twist - the twist being the interplay between four instruments in which the cello plays an unorthodox but brillient part (think bluegrass crossed with the best type of chamber music playing). Here they add an additional fiddle player, which although in theory should add to the overall range of their sound, to my ear actually takes away some of the drive and energy that they achieved previously and was the standout quality of their work. There are some good tracks here, but nothing quite up to the best of their previous work. Still just about worth four stars, but not quite up to the high expectations set by the previous two CDs.
