I too heard The lighthouse tale, but on Irish radio and was captivated. I bought the album on the strength of that song and was very, very impressed. In fact, I have played the disc to death. I am not a huge Bluegrass fan, but this has a more mellow feel, which is extremely appealing. Chris Thile has a haunting voice that sends shivers down your spin - well mine anyway.. Not at all surprised that Alison Krauss produced this, what a lady! Only one negative point...It ends too soon.
