3 stars The last Dixie Dregs album from first era, well, now only Dregs, they left their Dixie behind now. Industry standard is from 1982, but again nothing special in their music, every piece can enter on any previoses DD album easely. The same jazz-fusion combined with excellent violin interplays and some country chops here an there, not bad really, but nothing special either. Guitar of Steve Morse did a great job again, but he don't shines like on other DD albums, he only play some fine and intruiging moments but not over the top ones i might say. We have here some pieces with vocals that sometimes reminds me of Kansas Drastic measures or Vinyl conffesion era, same AOR mood, but not bad , only not so intristing as the fellowers americans. The best pieces the opening track Assembly line or the meaningfull title Where's Dixie?So again a good album no doubt but kinda far from the shining moments from What if .3 stars for this one.
