2 stars Progressive bluegrass - you can hear it here. It means , that in fact it is a mix of Wootens' funky pulsation plus Fleck's bluegrass or sometimes (as it happens on "Throwdown at the Hoedown") even country banjo.

Music fluctuates between country with funk elements and exotic kind of fusion ( banjo leaded, again). You can feel the presence of Wooten brothers rhythm section everywhere, quite offen it gives very funky feeling. But all in all, it sounds as high quality village band in your village Autumn Harvest Eve. And pop atmosphere is always around you.

I don't think it is bad album, some moments are even interesting, but I think it is almost unacceptable for most of prog fans. Just different bird.
