Having heard Nickle Creeks "the Lighthouse's Tale" on BBC's Top Of the Pops Two I was impressed enough to order their album. I was worried that when I had ordered this album from Amazon I had bought one of those albums with one good song. I shouldnt have been. What I got was an explosion of brand new musical ideas working under the bluegrass genre. Put quite simply Chris Thile, Sean Watkins and sister Sara Watkins have produced an album that has rekindled my belief that the music industry can still surprise us with real talent every now and then. All great singers and incredible musicians Nickle Creek have a vivality and youthful freshness that will have you hooked on thier modern slant on bluegrass. This is a band that obviously have influences outside of their genre which mixed with their incredible talent and ability to write songs has created surely the first of what will hopefully become many must buy albums.
