I had the pleasure of seeing Nickel Creek perform before they disbanded. I've been a huge fan for years, and Chris Thile's playing inspired me to go out and buy a mandolin. I've always thought they have so much about them as a band, and create a really great modern-sounding bluegrass sound.

A large part of me still thinks that their first album "Nickel Creek" from back in 2000 is their best, which features a more traditional sound. At first I wasn't sure what to think of "This Side", though after several listens it was a joy to listen to. They definitely made a move away from the traditional with This Side, and I felt that they maybe headed back in that direction again with "Why Should the Fire Die"? (which I thought was a brilliant album).

In the lull of nine years between Why Should the Fire Die and Dotted Line, I've also got listening to some Punch Brothers, Chris Thile's post-Nickel Creek band. These guys are absolutely fantastic, and their music seemed like a real showcase of Chris's song-writing ingenuity. There was a lot of weird stuff in there that sounded quite odd in bluegrass, and indeed at times it didn't seem right to call it bluegrass at all, but it was fantastic music nonetheless - catchy tunes, with interesting bits that you don't expect but just add to the overall memorability of the song.

"A Dotted Line" to me takes some degree of that Punch Brothers edginess, strips away the banjo but introduces Sara's wonderful voice. However, that isn't the tone for the entire album. Chris obviously has a lot of influence on writing material, but you can tell he's not completely dominated the writing process.

The opening track, "Rest of My Life" sets the album up nicely.

If you're a Nickel Creek fan then you should find this a superb return, admittedly it took a few extra listens to some of the songs, but now I can't stop playing the cd. Truly remarkable band that should be far better known.

Good to have them back together and recording again and it is lovely listen but I felt it wasn't quite as good as some of their earlier albums.

Brilliant musicianship and good songs/tunes but having seen live clips on Youtube, Nickel Creek has a live charm that's hard to beat.

As good as usual. Still getting to know album. Might even increase to 5 stars as I get to know the songs better

This is quite simply the best new album I've heard in a very long time. What more is there to say?!
